You should review more often. :lol:

(I hope you do read Blood God Blood again, Pete. I liked it well enough the first time obviously, but I realised it was twice as good after a second reading.)

When were the overseas copies posted - no sign of mine down here in SW France.

I do hope you got my subs renewal in time - I did it through the web site, via "WorldPay" on 29th September.

All overseas copies left on the 17th October. Clearly we are not getting anything like the service Citipost claim to provide (see below), and once again I'm appalled. I've demanded an explanation, but that's pretty much all I can do. I'll pass on any info they give me, but I expect if I get anything it'll be that there was a holiday one day somewhere.

Europe: 7–10 working days
RoW: 10–15 working days

Obviously everybody everywhere should have received their copies by now. That the issue hasn't even made it to France yet is disgraceful.

Citipost confirm that this mailing left these shores on the 20th, a few days later than expected but it doesn't make any difference to the problem we have, and they find it very hard to even give the impression that they care. They have the IZ219 mailing in hand, but having already given them one more chance I'll try to move to a different supplier for next time.

Meanwhile, please do let me know if and when your copies do arrive... And please try not to let it affect your subscriptions to the magazines. (Unfortunately only a very few subscribers will read this and will think that it's us who are rubbish.)

It's a toss up between issues 6 and 7 as to which is the strongest so far. The former had two outstanding stories in Melanie Fazi's 'Back on the Road' and Paul Meloy's ferocious 'All Mouth' which is about as close to a punch in the gob as you can get from a short story. The latter had an excellent story from Tony Richards - a genuiinely unsettling tale - and another superb piece of fiction from Daniel Kaysen, whose 'The Talent Girl' confirms that this is a writer growing in confidence and skill with each new story. However, in my book, the story he had in issue 5, 'The River Rising' is the best piece thus far to appear in Black Static.

Reason for the Season - Thoughts on:-

For a very short story it puches well above its weight.
The narrative drips bit by bit until by the end you're left with what seems like a huge boulder fallen down the mountain and you don't know which way to turn to get round it

The Hodag - some thoughts on:-

A very good rendering of the beastie in the woods theme. I kept reading to find out more about the monster.
I've been fond of the clipped american style of writing ever since reading Raymond Carver.
Starting with the perspective of the nine year old child and then finally framing with a grandfather's hindsight and dreams makes this story really quite thoughtful
