Welcome to issue ninety-three of Nightmare!
If the movie Midsommar piqued your interest in folk horror, you’ll be delighted by this new story from G.V. Anderson: “We, the Folk.” Find yourself transported to post-World War I Britain, where tea time and cottages stop being cozy and start being very, very creepy.
If you enjoy mushrooms in your meals, Ashley Deng’s new short “Dégustation” may make you rethink your dinner. We also hope to unsettle you with reprints by Laird Barron (“Girls Without Their Faces On”) and Robert Shearman (“That Tiny Flutter of the Heart I Used to Call Love”).
In “The H Word,” Ian McDowell wonders about what kind of childhoods your favorite horror writers had. Plus we have our usual author spotlight mini-interviews, and Terence Taylor digs into some new dark fiction.
