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.
