Hi Roy,

Has it got any easier to buy Black Static in a newsagents/bookshop? I'd like to get a copy, preferably from somewhere in London, but see that Murder One has shut down - do you have any advice?

Also, I've looked through the TTA Press website but can't seem to find anything that says whether the magazine pays for published stories - could you let me know?

Many thanks in advance,
It should be easier Belador but the demise of Barbes and Noble didn't help.
Our distributer says it is in more newsagents but not stocked in Smiths however they will order it for customers. Any newsagent can oder a copy, Distributer is Pineapple Media 02392 787970 (and Central Books).

Have you tried Forbidden Planet in Shaftsbury Ave or Books etc in Charing + Road? Mail order try Fantast 3 (23 Listers Road, Upwell, Wisbech, Cambs PE14 9BW United Kingdom Tel +44 (0) 1945 773576) Let me know what you find or and where please. It goes into the 'In the Wild' thread on the website.

Yes TTA press magazines are professional paying publications but won't make you wealthy.

Thank you, that's great - I phoned Forbidden Planet and they said they didn't have it, will try my local WHSmiths.
