The Black Box Killer short story out now in Interzone

Exciting news! My short story THE BLACK BOX KILLER is available now in Interzone!

In a world where criminals are redacted, ████ from the Bureau of Redaction must track down a serial killer before they strike again. The Black Box Killer is an experimental futuristic thriller inspired by 60s new wave science fiction.

Warren Ellis, author of Transmetropolitan and many other things (Castlevania anyone?), had some nice things to say about it.

“THE BLACK BOX KILLER by Kat Clay is a really clever piece about human redaction that impressed me from the start. There’s Alfred Bester in there, and Philip K Dick, but it’s very much its own thing, and it bodes well for this new era of INTERZONE.”

Interzone is one of the world’s oldest and most respected science fiction magazines and I couldn’t be more proud to be included in Gareth Jelley’s first edition as editor. The art by Dave Senecal fully captures the tone of the story. This is one story you’re going to want to see in print or PDF, so grab your copies here.
