However my initial feeling after the first read was that it felt like it was more Pinborough than Meloy in it's execution.


I had the opposite perspective on that (everyone having their own biased perspective, of course :wink: ). I thought that - apart from the extreme gore in the story - the characters, and their attitudes, were quite familiar from some of Meloy's other stories. In particular, "All Mouth", "Dying in the Arms of Jean Harlow" and the story "Islington Crocodiles" have that especially British milieu of scummy individuals.

After scouring the internet I managed to find the last available copy of Islington Crocodiles. And I mean the absolute last.
It cost me an arm and several legs but from what I can gather, will be well worth it. :wink:


Money well spent mate. I remember my excitment at tracking down a paperback copy of PS Publishings 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill, before I knew he was SK's son, I felt the same feeling reading that as I did IC; this is one hell of a writer!

Just uploaded Black Static 20 to Smashwords and someone bought a copy before I could reupload after a minor correction. Thanks whoever. This is the issue with Paul Meloy & Sarah Pinborough's collaboration; The Compartments Of Hell.

I believe I've now completed the 'up close and personal' discussion of the stories in this issue over on my blog.

If anyone is interested, you can find links to all the stories discussed here:-

Black Static 20 is now available on Amazon Kindle as well. I've reset the price to $4.24 but that may take a few hours too work through.
