    Black Static series looks awesome!

    And....some of those "Unexplained" posts from earlier - some of the pics you extracted and posted remind me so much of a book I had when I was a kid (lat '70's early '80s), that was about "monsters" - and touched on stuff like yeti, kraken (not the black rum), etc.

    Thanks again, guys. I'm glad you're enjoying the Black Static covers. There are a couple of humdingers in this post too, specfically issues #13 and #14. (I'd also recommend checking out covers from past issues of their sister magazine Interzone. Some of them are simply stunning.)

    I'm also glad to have given you a few flashbacks, TJ. Putting The Unexplained posts together was a lot of fun and something of a trip down memory lane for me too! In fact parts of it influenced my Cemetery Dance submission, Flood Warning. (Keep them fingers, toes, arms, legs and eyes crossed for me, folks!)

    Okay, I've hit 60K on the NaNo novel so I think I'll wind down with a few more covers, this time #13 - #18:

    If any of the issues pique your interest you might like to know that many of them are still available from Black Static's website: http://ttapress.com/blackstatic/backissues/ or from BBR Online: http://www.bbr-online.co.uk/catalogu...ckStatic.shtml.

    At this rate I'll need to book a second hotel room...

    Thanks, guys. I'm glad you like them. They're all paperbacks save for the rather domineering NOS4R2. I have to agree, Echo City has a very striking cover. I found Coldbrook another one that leapt from the shelves.

    I'll be sure to flaunt the title pages of any copies I get signed on this here thread. If you can stomach what would be the literary equivalent of holiday snaps, I may even post a few scenes from the con.

    Nice to see another Adam Nevill fan, Lucian. I recently read 'The Ritual', and I'm 3/4 of the way through 'Last Days'. 'Apartment 16' is on it's way to me, and should land next week.
    I've only read a couple of shorts by Sarah Pinborough, but I really like her style.

    Nice editions. Especially love the Mievilles, though I don't care for those particular covers.

    Thanks, guys.

    I'm quite the opposite on the Nevills, Lincoln, in that I've got 'Last Days' and 'The Ritual' on my TBR pile! The Dog-Faced Gods trilogy has a lot of things going for it - books two and three are great page-turners, and there is a real sense of closure to the trilogy - but there were a few big things I had to turn a blind-eye to. I'm composing a review for my Goodreads page/blog, but at the moment it's comparable in length to the books themselves.

    I agree, Squire, the Mieville covers are a little ho-hum front on. They don't show on the picture I took, but the spines of each book are a vibrant shade of whatever colour is used on the front, which is quite eyecatching when placed on a bookshelf.
