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.
That should keep you quiet for a while.
The new Black Static got here today. Looks like there’s plenty of quality horror fiction inside from Jackson Kuhl, V.H. Leslie, Steven J. Dines, Sean Padraic Birnie, Steven Pirie and James Cooper. Some great non-fiction from the usual suspects, and the art is to die for. Use the link for a glimpse of the contents.
All of which reminds me that I must renew my subscription.
