I'm reading it at the moment. Left it at work so can't remember the details but thought The Second Death Of... was excellent.

Probably my favourite issue thus far, with only Kathleen Winter's story failing to find the mark.

Anyway, a quick blog review:[/url]

As part of our publicity drive we sent Black Static 5 to the journalist Vassiliki Panteli in Greece and she responded

The covers are sensational; I think they fit very well the magazine. There is something strange and -I think the best term describing it is- mysteriously threatening, it gives you the creeps (I hope the term is correct); it is, actually more frightening than an illustration depicting a monster or a dead, bleeding man. The illustrators -and whoever chooses the cover- are doing a very good job.

It is an excellent magazine. I loved all stories, especially 'The Second Death of J. Kluge' by Tim Casson ( I think this is the best story of living dead I have ever read) and 'The Rising River' by Daniel Kaysen. I liked the rest also, except maybe 'How Deep is Loneliness'. There is nothing wrong with the story; it is just extremely disturbing, a little like Poe's stories or 'Les Fleurs du Mal' of Baudelaire. They are both chefs d'oeuvre, but not my thing.

I think the columns were very good. Mr Tennant's book reviews were excellent. He presents the book, almost without speaking about the story, and he remains very polite even when he does not like something in the story.
I also loved Stephen Volk's 'Interferences'; it was really clever and well written. I do not know if he is right about everything, because I don't know the TV programs he covered, but I liked very much the way he expressed himself. To be frank, I am a little envious of all the horror and fantasy shows on British TV. I wish we had half of them here in Greece; even in Belgium and France, where I lived for years, there was much less horror and fantastic.

Wow. I'll be sure to thank Vassiliki for that. And her description of the covers is exactly what we've been trying to achieve, that could almost be me and Dave talking! \:D/

OK, I'll try harder for the other 20%!
