Although the title of this section is Interzone
I will post news of Black Static
here rather than continue a conversation started with Lin in the Magazine Cover Art thread
TTA Press published 'The Third Alternative
', a magazine which contained SF, fantasy, horror, weird and slipstream material. After TTA acquired 'Interzone
' which also contained SF genre material 'The Third Alternative'
needed to be rethought and 'Black Static
' is the result. BS
will contain material that could be described as being at the horror end of the genre spectrum which includes SF, fantasy & slipstream. IZ
contains the SF and fantasy. Sometimes this will lead to tricky choices for Andy Cox, the editor, but he'll have fun with it.
It is strongly recommended that you study the magazine before submitting. This will obviously greatly improve your chances of acceptance.
Obviously it's not ideal to start the guidelines for a new magazine with those words but as BS
is the follow up to 'The Third Alternative
' it can be forgiven.
' will be out in September and I expect to be selling volume 1 number 1 at Fantasycon in Nottingham the month.
