I've posted a few more details about the issue, plus a few lo-res spreads, in the Black Static Current Issue section.

It looks like there are some heavy weights lined up for this issue. I can still recall reading Simon Clark's debut Nailed by the Heart (I was going to make a pun about being stunned but I'm not).

Although I must admit I can't recall a magazine called The Fear but I must have read it without it really sinking in.

A magazine I can remember is Back Brain Recluse. The title itself was inspirational, in fact I have yet to come across a magazine with a better title. But did that have stories by Steve Rasnic Tem? :)

I don't recall SRT being in there, but Simon Clark and Conrad Williams were I believe, and publisher Chris Reed also brought out Simon Clark's first book, a short story collection called "Blood and Grit" (which was also one of the first, if not the first, books I ever reviewed).

I can recall Blood and Grit now you mention it, I may still have it somewhere? I was just thinking of the novel which really did explode for me at the time. :!:

Blood and Grit is highly collectable now, especially if you've got one of the signed editions - I think Book Collector mentioned £100 a few years back.

Copies of Back Brain Recluse are still available from BBR Online (which is also a handy source for TTA Press publications including many which are sold out elsewhere). BBR was a fine magazine and published some of the best fiction of the time. It also had some pretty sharp reviewers, if I recall correctly...

Its no good, I can't find Blood and Grit on my shelves, mind you if its an anthology it might be tucked away half read somewhere?

Fantastic Literature are currently putting one out at £99.95.

I've found my copy now but its not signed so wouldn't be worth much really, but its still a nice looking book. I can recall it was on sale and advertised for ages, so they must have struggled to sell at the time.

Incidentally I've also found issues 2 - 10 of the Third Alternative but issue one is curiously missing, it may turn up?

I could be wrong, but I think a sizable percentage of the print-run was unsigned, maybe even as much as half. Your copy might be worth £50. At least, I think that's what Book Collector said. Having said that, I can't remember what I ate for dinner yesterday.

(edited to correct brain mash)

I have a theory, that if the trend for signed limited editions continues, then sooner or later it will be the unsigned copies that will be rare and therefore more valuable :wink:

A good indication of market prices can be found at
http://www.abe.co.uk

Although if you want to be awestruck by monopoly money have a look at the prices asked for material from Arkham House

Black Static #19 landed in Norfolk this morning. It looks lovely and if anyone can figure out how to bottle the smell, then that's the aftershave I want for Christmas. Admittedly, it might only entice women with first names like Lily and Morticia, but it's the principle of the thing - we need to diversify the Black Static brand :P
