First post up, Nina Allan blogging about Joyce Carol Oates:-

I've only read a couple of hers, "Beasts" and "Black Water", but I enjoyed them very much. Oh, and plenty of short stories in various places.

Is Carole Johnstone having any imput? She seems to have disappeared off the web since the turn of the year!

It's an open invitation to any women who have been published in Black Static, Ross.

You'll have to wait to see who appears.

Funnily enough, I've read "Black Water" too. Her story collection "Heat" is an absolute cracker. She is a genius of course.

Joyce Carol Oates is the living author I revere above all others, and by far the one I have read most of, over nearly thirty years now. A month ago I finished her most recent novel, Little Bird of Heaven, which was my thirty-ninth novel or book-length novella of hers. (Out of sixty to date - including four YA novels and eleven novels written under two pseudonyms.)

I'll second Nina's recommendation of the Celestial Timepiece website. There is also a JCO discussion group - if anyone is interested, please PM me for details.

There's something about JCO's writing that doesn't chime with many people in the UK for some reason, although most (but not all) of her novels have been published here at one time or another. She's much bigger in Scandinavia and other parts of Europe.

If I recall right, didn't you write an article about JCO for TTA back in the day Gary?

Over on my personal blog, if anyone is interested, I'm marking Women In Horror Recognition Month with some discussion of stories by women that have appeared in Black Static:-

http://trumpetville.wordpress.com/

So far talked about "En Saga" by Nina Allan, "How Deep Is His Loneliness" by Kathleen Winter, "Red Ribbons" by Stephanie Burgis, "The Morning After" by Carole Johnstone and "Votary" by M. K. Hobson.

I did indeed - way back in 1996 in TTA #10!

Anyone interested in JCO from a horror perspective could do well to check out her 1976 novel Son of the Morning. It's out of print, unfortunately (my copy is ex-library) but it's one of the best out-of-genre horror novels I've read.

If anyone is interested, today I wrote about "These Things We Have Always Known" by Lynda Rucker from #8:-

There are also some excellent interviews with women writers to be found at Little Miss Zombie's blog:-

Plus I managed to persuade Portsmouth's The News that TTA's publication of Victoria Leslie's first story in Black Static 21 was news worth printing.

Can I hot up this topic a little bit by inviting everyone to view this wonderful youtube clip of Morgan Freeman talking about "Black History Month"?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeixtYS-P3s

Its relevance will become apparent by analogy I think. Comments?

Alas, no sound on my computer, which is a real pity as I always like listening to Morgan Freeman. The guy has a classy voice.
