Lightening the Load

15th Feb, 2017

Author: Peter Tennant

Yesterday it was Valentine's Day, and today I do the reviewer equivalent of posting 'Dear John' letters, taking a long, hard look at my TBR pile and deciding which books are no longer realistically in contention for a review in the pages of Black Static.

There are thirty five titles getting "retired" this time around, all of which are now over a year old and some of which probably shouldn't have been sent to me in the first place.

We bid a tearful farewell to:-
