Black Static is the new title for The Third Alternative magazine, which was founded in 1994. With the arrival of the Interzone publication in 2005 it was no longer necessary to publish science fiction and fantasy in The Third Alternative. Therefore the writers took the opportunity to focus on its darker side and gave the magazine a new make over and a new title to emphasise the change. The magzine is now focused on bringing the reader the best horror stories from a variety of different writers.

These stories are actually very scary, never will we underestimate a magazine again! We were feeling brave and a bit cocky and thought…can a magazine really scare us? Pah! Well readers, it did! This is the perfect read for those who like to get that adrenaline rush from spooky and chilling tales. If you like Haunted magazine then you will love this.

The stories are all beautifully written, while the content is very varied, the reader can be sure that the quality of the writing through out the magazine is second to none. Black Static will always publish the writer’s details after each short story so readers can get a feel of who the writers are and what may have influenced them. For those readers who can’t wait until their next episode of Black Static, the magazine will also provide the latest horror book reviews, so readers can find out what the best new releases are and how they match up to each other.

This magazine has got great reviews if you are a person who likes to know what critics think about publications before you see for yourself. Ellen Datlow said that it was ‘the most consistently excellent horror magazine published.’ We think true horror fans should definitely give Black Static a whirl. It’s the best magazine to give yourself the goose bumps!
