The 18th issue of Black Static will be published in August 2010 when the mag will finish its 3rd year. We still have copies of all the back issues for sale but we only have one leftover copy of Black Static 3. So we are considering a sweepstake to celebrate publishing all those issues down to one last full set. Do you think a sweep for all 18 copies of the magazine would be a reasonable way to publicize Black Static's birthday?

Does a £1 wager to win all 18 seem reasonable? Does anyone see any potential problems?

Sounds like a great idea to me. And maybe a poll for the best of three years? Maybe that covers too many magazines though...

Sounds fantastic, Roy. I'm certainly interested.

If you do a poll for the three years you'll have to give me a while to reply because unfortunately the magazines are not all in one place.

If #3 is rare any offers? I'm sure I'll be able to find it for the right price eh?
:lol:

We aren't saying #3 is rare, merely that there is only one new unsold copy here and so we can make up one last full set of all 18 Black Statics. After that we have back issues but no full set.
There may be unsold new copies in specialist retailers like Transreal and even some with Pete in Charlotte NC but we only have that one.

Plenty of other copies. Essentially the sweep is a way to mark 3 years Black Static's 3rd birthday.

I was only joking.
It sounds like a nice idea.

I think Black Static has been in the shadow of Interzone a bit. Certainly not in quality of stories I hasten to add. They are V G. in both.

Sometimes I feel that some of the stories could equally fit into either. One that stands out was Falling Through Shadows last year in Interzone and it could just as easily have fitted into Black Static. :)

Three years, already? And to think we waited nearly three years from the last issue of TTA til the first issue of BS.
