Editorial: November 2018

Welcome to issue seventy-four of Nightmare!

This month, we have an original novelette from Usman Malik (“Dead Lovers on Each Blade, Hung”) that we’ll be serializing over two weeks. Our reprints are by Carole Johnstone (“Better You Believe”) and Lucy Taylor (“Nikishi”).

In the latest installment of our column on horror, “The H Word,” A.C. Wise examines the roles mothers play in horror. Plus, we have an author spotlight with Usman Malik and a book review from Terence Taylor.
