Kim Lakin-Smith's story 'The Shadow Keeper', is marvellous - genuinely moving and full of wondeful imagery.

I've started another real-time review (i.e. of Black Static 13) here:

Cuckoos was distinctly unnerving. Not got to the Joel Lane yet...

Only read White Noise so far, but very excited about a new collection from Cooper. It was painful putting the new magazine aside last night with nary a story read, especially now having read some of the posts here...

I've not finished it yet but my favorite so far is Dead Loss, although I don't know how much of that is due to me reading it while on a ferry off the Scottish coast two days ago. :shock:

Yes, I thought that was a good one too (though I read it on my sofa rather than the North Sea). For some reason ugly marine creatures always give me the creeps - that fish-gutting factory in Existenz freaked me out more than anything else in the movie!

My Secret Children was my favourite this issue. Cooper writes about human darkness, and particularly its role regarding childhood, with a poignancy that adds a delicious richness to his tales. Another thoroughly enjoyable story for me.

I also enjoyed the feature on novellas, made a nice change to see so many reviewed.

There, that's my two penny's worth.

All good stuff, though I particularly liked 'Cuckoos' and 'The Shadow Keeper'.

What I really liked about this was that my perception, after his two previous BS contributions, was that this was going to be rather bleak, but I actually found it to be an uplifting tale.

The Joel Lane story I have just read was quite haunting at the end

:shock:
