We'll see you there, Roy, as we've just confirmed to have a table ourselves. I imagine I'll be doing my usual catch-up for the latest bunch of Black Statics. One day, I may even catch up on reading them!  :)

It's that time when Peter Tennant, Black Static news correspondent and book reviewer asks for news for the next issue. #17 would you believe?

The address is still whitenoise (at) ttapress.com so if you have horror and dark fantasy genre related news why not tell him.

Just belatedly got round to reading my copy of #16.

I particularly enjoyed 'The Overseer' by Tim Casson. Kind of like if 'The Road to Wigan Pier' had been rewritten by Franz Kafka.
