Pretty dark, Dennis... But I think the tone of it smoothed it out!

Great closing line, Jason! I'm still wondering what the hell happened.. :/ lol

Hello all,

Just wanted to spread some praise - avidly reading the advent pieces as they've been released. Great breadth of feeling and styles which has made every one enjoyable in different ways. I loved Roy's poem, Jason's Redemption Machine had a really strong finish, David's fantastic First Foot made me think twice about haggis and Dennis' Grandfather was a really tightly written (and sadly appropriate) story. So thank you all.

Of course, following all that tomorrow isn't intimidating in the slightest...

Best

Stephen

I haven't had chance to have a read yet, so just had a dip in this morning.

Really enjoyed Roy's poem - 'nightmare monsters inimical to men' - nice.

I really enjoyed Des's story too - a 'shiversome place' indeed! :D

Loved the SF tale with a 'twist' in the end Stephen :)
and
Jo's tale was excellent too, a story for adults and children alike :)

Glad you enjoyed it, Bob.

Apologies for apparently not working out how to (re-)schedule a blog post properly to everyone and ta to Bob for letting me know there was a problem.

Great story, Stephen. Wasn't expecting that ending..lol

Nicely done, Jo! Some great visuals, and as Bob said, perfect for both children and adults.. :)

Interesting one from Dylan. Imagine a future like that.. :shock:

Ian, I enjoyed that.. :)

With reading a few days together you notice which are the Interzone, and which are the Black Static readers/writers.. Just wondering if anyone else noticed that as well.. and if so, which magazine do you think will come out on top at the end..?? :) lol
It's prob one for Pete, I know he loves the stats.. :wink:

Just printed the whole lot - I've a pleasant evening in store tonight from the sounds of it.

Well, I say pleasant. You know what I mean.

Great stuff from Anthony today. He does love a bit of 2nd person narration but I think it suits in this instance.
