I just remembered how bizarre that quote looked in the advert in the last issue of Interzone. Is this some sort of 'reverse psychology' advertising? :shock:

While doing the Simon Clark feature for this issue, I realised that Simon's collection "Blood & Grit" was one of the first titles I ever reviewed, perhaps even the very first, way back in 1990, and so to mark the occasion I posted that review to my blog if anyone is interested:-

As usual - an excellent edition. I started with the features first as always. Most enjoyable.

Lynda E. Rucker's 'These Things We Have Always Known' and James Cooper's 'There’s Something Wrong With Pappy' were my personal favourites this issue. I've had the image of a dead wooden bird in my mind for a while since (there's more to like in Rucker's story than that, of course), and though I've enjoyed all the stories in Black Static so far, Cooper's was the first in a while that made me feel -well - a bit squirmy and weird inside, quite uncomfortable. It was that damn house.

Brilliant - looking forward to a new year of more...

I agree, a great issue.

My favourite was the Steve Rasnic Tem, but also loved the Book of Ruth.
