Black Static 29 has arrived downunder (finally - I would damn Australia Post, except that they did after all deliver this gorgeous thing to me), and is beautiful to behold. Big up on the new format - very cool.

And Black Static has arrived in Canada! I think the new format looks very sharp. Looking forward to dipping into the contents.

Phew. Please let me know how long the next one takes...

Apologies to Baph for the typo at the top of page 33. I actually added that "g" because I thought I needed a descender on that line of text in order to check some spacing, obsessing over a fraction of a millimetre probably -- and then I forgot to remove it. I am a bit of a saddo.

I personally think "start gover" works as a neologism that combines the ideas of starting over and returning to "Go" (a la Monopoly), so I resent the fact that you are trying to claim credit for it here as a typo. :wink:

I suppose we can share the glory once it works its way into common usage.

I think 'Chodpa' slightly won out over 'Shark! Shark!' for me, but only by the smallest of insect feelers, and I found most of the stories in this issue annoyingly well written. Good stuff.

I'm glad you liked the story, Lawrence. Cheers!

Real arsey review of BS29 here:

Yeah, it is a bit. Each to their own, I suppose. 6 out of 10 ain't bad.

Still, to off-set that a little (and to blow my own trumpet), that overly tricksy annoying story of mine was recommended for a Bram yesterday by Ellen Datlow. Just a recommendation, but \:D/

Can't please all the people all the time...

No you can't. True enough. But that doesn't bother me as much as arseyness does. Or giving stories a bad review when you completely misunderstand the stories you're reviewing. I think it's OK to complain about that. For a bit, anyway. I expect I'll spend more time wondering if greys are always muddy...

Did seem to miss something with the Tim Lees - Barry's less than handsome appearance was kind of the point. I thought it a wonderful story, actually, and complimented the Nina Allan one (and vice versa) very well indeed.

This other Starburst review, of [REC] Genesis is, also wrong:

http://www.starburstmagazine.com/review ... ec-genesis

which gives me a good opportunity to recommend this wonderful film myself, alert you to Tony's upcoming review in BS30, and the fact that we'll have a few copies of the Blu-ray to give away in case you were thinking of buying/renting and might like to try your luck instead.

Same goes for the superb Livid (Livide) btw, of which says Tony says "Boasting superbly evocative set designs, Livid arrives reeking of dark fairy tale atmosphere, and presents a dusty museum packed with numerous grotesque artefacts and nightmarishly gloomy displays seething with sinister purpose ... Not simply a formulaic ‘tale of the unexpected’, Livid recycles art house gothic peculiarities into its grisly and extraordinarily stylish visual poem..." We'll have five Blu-rays of this to give away too. In fact these have already arrived.

[edited to remove the smiley. wrong is wrong]

I've only started reading the fiction but I have to say Nina Allan's "Sunshine" is absolutely superb: one of the best vampire stories I've ever read. Beautiful prose and utterly gripping. A real triumph... - though the new format of the mag means I cannot lay it flat when I go for my cappuccino and croissant in the morning, which creates a hell of a middle-class crisis in the deli, I can tell you.
