Editorial, December 2013

Welcome to issue fifteen of Nightmare!

Before we get to our stories, just a reminder that over in the Nightmare ebookstore (nightmare-magazine.com/store), I wanted to point out that we currently have the following ebook bundles available:

  • Nightmare (Issues 1-6) – $14.99
  • Nightmare (Issues 7-12) – $14.99
  • Nightmare (Year One: Issues 1-12) – $24.99

Buying a Bundle gets you a copy of every issue published during the named period. Buying either of the half-year Bundles saves you $3 (so you’re basically getting one issue for free), or if you spring for the Year One Bundle, you’ll save $11 off the cover price. So if you need to catch up on Nightmare, that’s a great way to do so.

Of course, if you don’t want to buy a Bundle, you can also just purchase an individual ebook issue, or if you’d like to subscribe directly from us, you can do that too. All purchases from the Nightmare store are provided in both epub and mobi format. Visit nightmare-magazine.com/subscribe to learn more about all of our subscription options.

With our announcements out of the way, here’s what we’ve got on tap this month:

We have original fiction from Sam J. Miller (“57 Reasons for the Slate Quarry Suicides”) and David J. Schow (“A Home in the Dark”), along with reprints by Connie Willis (“Distress Call”) and Conrad Williams (“The Owl).

We also have the latest installment of our column on horror, “The H Word,” plus author spotlights with our authors, a showcase on our cover artist, and a feature interview with master of horror Joe R. Lansdale.

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:

Thanks for reading!
