NIGHTMARE is an online horror and dark fantasy magazine. In NIGHTMARE's pages, you will find all kinds of horror fiction, from zombie stories and haunted house tales, to visceral psychological horror.
Welcome to issue eighty-seven of NIGHTMARE! It's turning into winter now, so we're really excited about "Methods of Ascension," a new short story from Dan Stintzi that will take you out in the snow and make you wish you were just freezing to death. In our second original short,"Dead Worms, Dangling," Joanna Parypinski takes us someplace a bit warmer: the local fishing hole. But don't expect your ordinary fishing story--this is Nightmare Magazine, after all. Our reprints this month are from Siobhan Carroll ("Nesters") and Kurt Fawver ("The Myth of You"). In the latest installment of our column on horror, "The H Word," author Stephen Graham Jones talks about how endings work in this genre. Terence Taylor has reviewed some new fiction for us, and of course, we have author spotlights with our authors.
