Black Static 38

Black Static 38 lives!

Best horror magazine in the world, if you ask me. Follow the links for further information on its contents. It is available on its own or with a joint subscription to Interzone.

Interzone 250 has its own dedicated thread at Interaction where you can follow its adventures.

And Tony Lee has posted his ratings for the films that he reviewed for both magazines here.

Both Black Static 32 and Interzone 244 have been published. It’s official.

Go get ‘em! Go get ‘em together with a joint subscription! And look out for Flux - a free new magazine that will be sent out to subscribers of the above two.

And vote for your favourite stories from last year’s issues of Interzone in the annual poll. Check the – uh – checklist to refresh your memory.

That should keep you quiet for a while.

November 19, 2012

And Interzone 243 has also been published. Couldn’t see it because Black Static 31 was sitting on top of it.

Go get ‘em!
