LOS ANGELES - Say goodbye to Gallery, Fox and Lollypops. The three popular skin mags have officially ceased to exist with the demise of Montcalm Publishing.
The April 2008 issue of Gallery ended a 36-year run for the magazine, known for its 'Girl Next Door' feature that launched the likes of XXX star Stacy Valentine. A leading competitor to Hustler and Penthouse, Gallery published some of Stephen King's early short fiction, including "The Man Who Loved Flowers" and "The Crate."
Fox debuted in 1984 as a sister publication to Gallery. The magazine featured harder content and a look similar to Penthouse. Jill Kelly was on the masthead for a time, as was the late Anna Malle.
Lollypops launched in the '90s, cashing in on the 'Barely Legal' craze with photo sets of young porn stars. Sunny Lane contributed a column to the magazine.
"There has been some talk that these titles may be picked up by another publisher, but as of yet, there is nothing to report," said a rep for adult ad agency Pacific Marketing.
Montcalm also published mainstream titles including Twilight Zone magazine. The company went bankrupt in March.
