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-six of NIGHTMARE! This month, we have a new story by Adam-Troy Castro ("Dollhouse") that redefines the words "dysfunctional family." Gwendolyn Kiste gives voice to Dracula's most famous victim in her original short story "The Eight People Who Murdered Me (Excerpt from Lucy Westenra's Diary)". We also have reprints by Seanan McGuire ("With Graveyard Weeds and Wolfbane Seeds") and Suyi Davies Okungbowa ("The Secret Life of the Unclaimed"). In the latest installment of our column on horror, "The H Word," Mica Dean Hicks talks about the role of cruelty in horror fiction... and life. We also have author spotlights with our authors and a feature interview with Lois H. Gresh.
