Editorial, August 2013

Welcome to issue eleven of Nightmare!

If you’re a fan of horror movies as well as horror fiction, you might want to check out your humble editor’s podcast, The Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy. We did a couple of recent episodes that may be of interest to horror aficionados; the first was Episode 85, which featured our interview with Joe Hill (a two-part transcript of which you can find in this month’s and last month’s issues of Nightmare) along with an in-depth discussion of recent horror movies. Then, in Episode 89, we interview Lauren Beukes, whose new novel is about a time-traveling serial killer, and we follow up that chat with a panel discussion on “psycho killers” in fiction and film. You can learn more about the podcast, and find those episodes, at geeksguideshow.com.

And now onto this month’s issue…

For our August offerings, we have original fiction from Matthew Cheney (“How Far to Englishman’s Bay”) and Jennifer Giesbrecht (“All My Princes Are Gone”), along with reprints by living legends Robert McCammon (“Nightcrawlers”) and Clive Barker (“Lost Souls”).

We also have the latest installment of our column on horror, “The H Word,” plus author spotlights with all of our authors, a showcase on our cover artist, and part two of our two-part feature interview with bestselling author Joe Hill. (Part one can be found in our July issue and on our website).

That’s about all I have for you this month, but before I step out of your way and let you get to the fiction, here are a few URLs you might want to check out or keep handy if you’d like to stay apprised of everything new and notable happening with Nightmare:
