Welcome to issue seventy-seven of Nightmare!
We’re opening this month with an original short from Micah Dean Hicks, “Quiet the Dead,” the story of a haunted family in a town whose biggest industry is the pig slaughterhouse. Rafeeat Aliyu’s new short story “58 Rules To Ensure Your Husband Loves You Forever” is full of good relationship advice . . . if you don’t mind feeding your husband human flesh. We’re also sharing reprints by Kelley Armstrong (“We Are All Monsters Here”) and Nick Mamatas (“The Glottal Stop”).
Our nonfiction team has put together their usual array of author spotlights, and in the latest installment of “The H Word,” Richard Thomas talks about exciting new trends in horror films. Since it’s Women in Horror Month, Lisa Morton has put together a terrific panel interview with Linda Addison, Joanna Parypinski, Becky Spratford, and Kaaron Warren—a great group of female writers and scholars.
