Received in Edinburgh (a couple of days ago...) and I love the colour. It's not like there's suddenly fuchsia pinks and lime green. It's a creepily muted palette that complements the stories well.
I've only read the first two so far and particularly enjoyed Tim Casson's 'The Overseer'.

Just got my copy :D I haven't started reading it yet (and probably won't for a few days, as I'm still catching up on IZ#227) but the artwork looks amazing!

Peter, there's a coda (that's what he calls it anyway) to Colin's review on Suite 101 of BS #16 here, on his web site:

I only point it out, of course, because there's a nice mention of my Electric Darkness! :)

Ah, Peter. You are "radiant" but I am not! You win some, you lose some. Any idea what this foul pundit has actually done?

I thought your latest column was terrific, Stephen.

Although Mr T is of course still radiant. :D

I found Christopher Fowler's Interference column as thought provoking as ever.

It is only right to draw the distinction between viscereal horror (eg someone holding their eyeballs in the hand) and the horror of the everyday.

It reminds me of that phrase The banality of evil.

And there is the quote, going off slightly at a tangent admittedly, at the end of a Dustin Hoffman film, "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist."

To call for more horror writing of the everyday is an admirable statement.

I would like to go further than that though and look for the horror of the unreliability of the narrator. Where there is a chasm between the writer and the reader and the story is told inbetween the lines. But how do you convey the unreliability of the narrator inbetween the lines?

Its a tricky one.

Really enjoyed Tim Casson's story.

Great layout, too - like the little mill insets on the pages. The illustration is of a really high standard, as well. As ever, for BS... :D

'The Empty Spaces' was the easily the highlight of the issue for me fiction-wise - and as for the full colour: love it!

Stories all so good this time it's hard to pick a favourite - though if pressed I think I'd have to go for Mike O'Driscoll's One Last Wild Waltz. Excellent issue all round though.
