The summation of Dread Central's review of this issue, Black Static #32, Jan- Feb 2013 is quoted below. "Continuing to assert its reign as the most essential regular publication for fans of literary horror, TTA Press's Black Static magazine delivers another predominantly excellent selection of spine-tingling stories with Issue 32. Before the fiction begins, columnist Stephen Volk delivers an amusingly scathing attack on the perception and position of writers in the world of filmmaking which finds itself a perfect partner in Christopher Fowler's immediate follow-up -- a brief yet hope-laden insight into marketing, characterisation and the importance of remaining committed to goals which finishes on a starkly poignant note that should ring true for any aspiring novelist.." www.dreadcentral.com/reviews/black-static-issue-32-books
