Black Static #56 is currently at the printers, and will be mailing out to subscribers and contributors early in 2017. Andy will be along shortly to give you full details of what this issue contains, but in the meantime I'm first off the starting blocks with information on the books I'll be reviewing in the Case Notes section.
Here's what we've got for you:-
SEEKING TO SUBVERT: STEPHEN VOLK
For those of you in mourning at the passing of his Coffinmaker's Blues column, here's a review of Stephen Volk's latest collection of short stories, The Parts We Play, and an interview with the author.
Reviews of Uncertainties Volumes 1 & 2, edited by Brian J. Showers, and of Six Scary Stories, selected and introduced by Stephen King.
IN SMALL PACKAGES
Reviews of the shorter works by Black Static contributors that have been mouldering in my TBR pile:-
Cape Wrath by Paul Finch
The Harlequin by Nina Allan
The Lost Film by Stephen Bacon & Mark West
The Booking by Ramsey Campbell
The Damage Museum by Vincent Sammy
What They Find in the Woods by Gary Fry

Looking further ahead, our featured author the following issue will be Andrew Hook and, acts of God aside, I'll be looking to review a lot more books by Black Static contributors, including the latest collections by our columnists Lynda E. Rucker, Gary Couzens, and Ralph Robert Moore.
That'll be #57, and it should be with you in March 2017.
