Black Static


I Wish You Luck, As I Wave You Goodbye

It's that sad time again when I look over the very long list of books I have waiting for review and decide which titles are no longer in serious contention and should be discarded.

There are thirty six that didn't make the cut this time round.

All of the books listed below are at least a year old, or will be by the end of March. Some of them should never have been sent to Black Static in the first place, and some I'm really sorry that I never got to review, and I don't rule out the possibility of doing so on this blog at a later date as there are a few there that I really, really want to read (Adam Nevill, Lee Thomas, Tom Fletcher), but the window of opportunity for a review in the magazine is now past I feel.  Apologies to all those who missed out, but alas, we can't cover everything that gets sent.

And so, we wave goodbye to:-
