My copy arrived this morning. My postie refuses to strike. He's still wearing shorts. Looks gorgeous, Andy. Black Static, not my postie in shorts. Both have big flies though.

Paul - I used to have a good looking postie in shorts - where do you live?
BLACK STATIC - wow, now I'll be subscribing, when I have paid for BFSCon and the hundreds of pounds worth of books that I have bought lately and that is without Tartarus, Machen (which I want for Christmas.) Perhaps my hubs won't notice if I sneak one itsy bitsy copy through the bank account and I'm down for the York BFSCon next week!

Stephen Bacon - I didn't see you at BFSCon but I noticed that you were down for it! Mind you I was trying to keep up with the pints and the lads!

Hmmm. No sign of it in Sussex.

I'm going to resend you my address, Andy. I'll go to the Contact section and use your email there. I'll put NEW ADDRESS in the subject heading. :(

And no sign here in the U.S. either. Michigan to be exact.

I haven't got it in Clacton yet, but I put that down to the Postal Strike which must be solid round here.

Only read the Joel Lane story so far (cos it's the shortest) and I think the 'pre-review' was a bit unfair with it. I liked the story.

Enjoyed all the editorial/non-fiction parts. Stephen Volk's and Chris Fowler's were both depressing and yet brutally honest. Frustrating, as I can't seem to find much time at the minute to read it cover to cover (although i do appreciate I'm lucky enough to actually have received it).

Allyson Bird - I only got there for the saturday and had to leave early (six-ish), but I loved it and will definitely be back next year. Like you, I spent about £100 on books (don't tell the missus)! I couldn't stop thinking about the Jones/Smith interviews for ages. Hope to see you next time (and buy you a drink, of course).

Yes - see you there next year!
The panel on Machen,(Sunday) completely bowled me over. Ramsey Campbell. Gwilym Games, Mark Samuels and Simon Clark - brilliant!

It finally arrived in Glasgow today. Bet it puts the wind up the giant spiders that have been sneaking into my house during this unseasonably warm weather.

Hadn't thought of that.
Can we get transparent-background window stickers of that fly artwork?
They'd look great on car windscreens, too!

I'm getting my mail, so it should be here.

Andy, did you get my recent email with my address?

Just checking. I'm not trying to be pushy, I'm just really excited about reading the new mag.

It has arrived in Clacton. Wow! Indeed worth the wait.

Got it! well-worth the protracted time-scale; hopefully the name "Black Static" will become has synonymous with great fiction and content has TTA was. :D

Deeply impressed by the first issue - design and contents. Excellent: suddenly, TTA seems like mere nostalgia ... !

Post subject:  Off to a cracking start

Congratulations to all involved in the publication of Black Static 1. It arrived in Notts yesterday. The Joel Lane story was every bit as good as I'd expected and the Christopher Fowler and Stephen Volk essays are wonderfully incisive bits of cultural commentary. They come crashing into the house of late capitalist anodyne pap through different doors but wield their axes to similar effect.

And talking of nostalgia, as Mat was, I'm so old and clapped out I can remember when they used to publish pieces this sharp, this smart and this angry in the Guardian. No nostalgia for TTA though: for me, this is an interesting departure with massive potential.

All the best ... Andy H
