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.
Edited by bestselling anthologist John Joseph Adams, every month Nightmare will bring you a mix of originals and reprints, and featuring a variety of authors—from the bestsellers and award-winners you already know to the best new voices you haven’t heard of yet. When you read Nightmare, it is our hope that you’ll see where horror comes from, where it is now, and where it’s going.
Nightmare also includes nonfiction, fiction podcasts, and Q&As with our authors that go behind-the-scenes of their stories. Our publication schedule each month includes two pieces of original fiction and two fiction reprints, along with a feature interview and an artist gallery showcasing our cover artist. We publish ebook issues on the first of every month, which are available for sale in ePub/Mobi format via our website and also available in other formats such as Kindle and Nook. We also offer subscriptions to our ebook edition in a variety of formats. Each issue’s contents are serialized on our website throughout the month, with new features publishing on the first four Wednesdays of every month.
