Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: The Review
• What does Xposé think of the latest book?
Here's our review…

Fantasy Authors!
We talk to the people behind the current resurgence in Fantasy fiction, from veteran authors to exciting new voices…

James Patterson
• Best-known for his adult crime novels, this bestselling author is turning his hand to children’s Fantasy with The Angel Experiment. We talk to him about making the change…

Juliet E McKenna
• The author of Tales of Einarinn looks at how JRR Tolkien’s legacy has informed modern Fantasy literature

Francis Hardinge
• New authoress Hardinge discusses her book Fly by Night, a Fantasy novel with a twist – there’s no magic in it

Ian Ogilvy
• In the 1970s he thrilled TV audiences in The Return of the Saint – but now the actor-turned-author is proving that cleanliness is next to Godliness with his series of children’s books.

Fantasy Books!
With the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, there’s only one more novel left in JK Rowling’s blockbuster Fantasy series. We take a look at the Potter phenomenon, and the Fantasy novels lining up for a shot at JK Rowling’s crown …

The Books of Roald Dahl
• With Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory hitting the big screen, we take a look back at the work of the master of macabre children’s fiction…

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
• The rights to Susanna Clarke’s début novel have been snapped up by New Line Cinema – but how will they translate a 782-page brick of a book to the screen?

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events
• Many authors dream that their work will make the jump from page to screen, and A Series of Unfortunate Events has already spawned one blockbuster movie. But why hasn’t it turned into a film series to match Harry Potter?

The Chronicles of Narnia
• CS Lewis’s everlasting stories are coming to the screen... but will the seven-book saga match the success of his contemporary JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings? And how will Lewis’s Christian parable fare in the age of His Dark Materials?

His Dark Materials
• Philip Pullman’s series of Fantasy novels is one of the few to have enjoyed the same level of success as Harry Potter – so why does work on the film adaptations appear to have stalled?

Fantasy Films!
It’s a blockbuster season of witches, wizards, dream-worlds and the walking dead on the silver screen – we talk to …

Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride
• The visionary director chats to us about turning Johnny Depp into a puppet for his upcoming Corpse Bride, and why he’s chosen to adapt Roald Dahl’s classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Neil Gaiman’s MirrorMask
• The legendary writer of the Sandman comic books talks about his upcoming move to the big screen with Fantasy film MirrorMask, and his future film projects

• Star Nicole Kidman discusses her role in the rather confusing film version of classic TV series Bewitched, playing a witch-turned-actress who’s playing a witch in the cinematic remake of classic TV series Bewitched, within the narrative of the film, which… oh, just buy the magazine and let Nicole explain it to you

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
• With all the excitement over Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince, one could almost forget that there’s the blockbuster film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire due out in a few short months. We investigate…

Fantasy TV!
Fantasy films may be dominating the cinema, but the small-screen continues to nurture a number of classic Supernatural series…

• Star Dorian Gregory and executive producer Brad Kern discuss the successful seventh season of the hit Fantasy show, and look ahead to its final year…

The Dead Zone
• After three years, Sarah Bannerman has finally resolved her feelings for her re-awakened ex-fiance Johnny Smith... so what does The Dead Zone have in store for her now? We ask star Nicole de Boer…


Fall Movie Preview
• We take a look at the films that’ll be packing audiences in this autumn, including Harry Potter, MirrorMask and King Kong

10 Things You Didn’t Know About…
• Screen veteran Michael Caine, star of Bewitched, Batman Begins, Alfie, Get Carter… we could go on…
…and we will! The Italian Job, Zulu, The Ipcress File, A Bridge Too Far
