The Book of Ruth

My short story "The Book of Ruth" is now published in TTA Press' Black Static.

It's a magazine I've always admired even back in the days of its previous incarnation The Third Alternative, and I'm thrilled to be a part of this issue.

The full table of contents is below:

At The Gates by Patrick Samphire

These Things We Have Always Known by Lynda E. Rucker

Noppero-Bo by Steve Rasnic Tem

There’s Something Wrong With Pappy by James Cooper

The Book Of Ruth by Steven Pirie

Taking On Life by Gary Fry

Plus all the usual features, including columns by Christopher Fowler, Stephen Volk and Mike O’Driscoll; DVD reviews (and competitions) by Tony Lee; book reviews (and interview with Simon Clark) by Peter Tennant; news; stunning graphics…

“Britain’s finest magazine of Dark Fantasy” Suite 101

“A must-read for those who like their fiction contemporary and uncensored” Ed Gorman

“A wicked beauty” Simon Clark

“The premier source for a regular and opinionated overview of the horror, dark and weird genres in the UK” Bookgeeks

“The most disturbing images I’ve encountered this year or any other. For a different outlook and some quality writing, you should be subscribing” SF Revu

“Black Static creeps into the same house as Cemetery Dance and Subterranean as a member of the elite horror publications” Horror World

“Not worth the wait” Stephen Jones
