About

Black Static is the new title for The Third Alternative, which was founded in 1994. With the arrival of Interzone in 2005 it was no longer necessary to publish science fiction and fantasy in The Third Alternative (not that there was ever very much of it), so we took the opportunity to focus on its darker side and give the magazine a new title to emphasise the slight shift, and give potential readers a clearer idea of what the magazine was all about. So the magazine became Black Static, now fully recognisable as a Horror magazine.
