Change in Schedule
There'll be no Black Static in June. Issue 29 will instead become the July-August issue and mail out at the same time as Interzone issue 241, and the magazines will continue on that schedule, sharing the same dateline and mailings. This makes much more sense after the recent Royal Mail changes.
We've taken this opportunity to make a couple of design changes too. The magazine will lose 36mm off its height and 30mm off its width, which will allow us to print a lot more pages (issue 29 will be 96 pages instead of the usual 64, with the very real prospect of increasing to 128 pages in the future), using a thicker uncoated paper and a thicker cover, which will be laminated. It'll have a spine. The point size of the fiction will be slightly bigger. Hopefully this all adds up to a better reading and handling experience, and a format that better suits the content.
