Thanks for the mentions, folks
I went through my magazines at the weekend.
Here’s my list, should an anthology for Black Static happen. I set a limit for myself of 20 stories, with only one appearance per author.
My Stone Desire by Joel Lane
Must See to Appreciate by Scott Nicholson
The Fantasy Jumper by Will McIntosh
The Rising River by Daniel Kaysen
Special Needs byPeter Tennant
The Reason for the Season by Bruce Holland Rogers
The Hodag by Trent Hergenrader
There’s Something Wrong With Pappy by James Cooper
Piano Man by Christopher Fowler
Vic by Maura McHugh
Bryson Feeds Families byT. F. Davenport
Dead Loss byCarole Johnstone
The Empty Spaces by Alison J. Littlewood
Zombie Cabana Boy by Suzanne Palmer
Three-Legged Bird by Vylar Kaftan
A Man Of Ice And Sorrow by Simon Kurt Unsworth
Tu Sufrimiento Shall Protect Us by Mercurio D. Rivera
The Obscure Bird by Nicholas Royle
Ulterior Design by V. H. Leslie
Dermot by Simon Bestwick
I also tried to limit myself to one per issue but found I couldn’t stick to that, especially regarding issue 18 which provides 3 of the 20.
I’ve essentially picked favourites, though, and not necessarily a range of stories that best represents the magazine. And there were loads more that I liked.
Disclaimer - I didn't know any of the authors before liking these stories (though a few since) with the exception of VH Leslie.
