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 ninety-six of NIGHTMARE! Our original fiction this month is deeply grounded in place. We're taking you on a witchy trip to the prairie in Ray Nayler's new story "Outside of Omaha," and we let Sonya Taaffe immerse us in the canals of Boston in "Tea with the Earl of Twilight." Our reprints are from Kivel Carson ("The Night Has No Eyes") and Gary McMahon ("My Boy Builds Coffins"). On the nonfiction front, Suyi Davies Okungbowa talks about the differences between Nigerian and American horror in our "The H Word" column. Plus, Terence Taylor reviews some excellent new reads, and of course we have author spotlights with our authors. Our ebook readers will enjoy an excerpt from the reissue of Kathe Koja's classic novel, THE CIPHER.
