Saturday, February 20th, 2016 | Posted by John ONeill

Black Static 50-smallBritish horror magazine Black Static #50, cover-dated January-February, is now available. It sports a creepy and very effective cover by Vince Haig, illustrating Georgina Bruce’s “White Rabbit” (click the image at right for a bigger version.)

This issue contains six stories:

“White Rabbit” by Georgina Bruce
“Man of the House” by V.H. Leslie
“Child of Thorns” by Ray Cluley
“Greenteeth” by Gary Budden
“Foul is Fair” by Tyler Keevil
“Bug Skin” by Tim Casson

The magazine’s regular columns include Coffinmaker’s Blues by Stephen Volk (on “10 Ways Comedy and Horror Are Almost the Same Thing”) and Notes From the Borderland by Lynda E. Rucker (“Meet the New Goth, Same as the Old Goth”), plus two review columns: Blood Spectrum by Tony Lee (DVD/Blu-ray reviews); and Case Notes by Peter Tennant (book reviews).

Issue 50 is nearly 100 pages and comes packed with new dark fantasy and horror, and top-notch art. Black Static is the sister magazine of Interzone (see the latest issue here); both are published by TTA Press in the UK. The distinguished Andy Cox is the editor of both.

As usual, the magazine is filled with eye-catching b&w art. Black Static is consistently one of the sharpest looking magazines on the racks. Here’s the opening spread for Georgina Bruce’s “White Rabbit,” illustrated by Vince Haig.
