Welcome to issue eighty-three of Nightmare!
Every society has its rites of passage. In this month’s first original short, Kurt Fawver takes us into one town’s terrifying entry to adulthood: “The Bleeding Maze.” Our other original story, “The Skin of a Teenage Boy is Not Alive,” by Senaa Ahmad, explores the effects of demonic possession. We also have reprints from Amanda Downum (“Spore”) and Richard Gavin (“The Word-Made Flesh”).
In the latest installment of our column on horror, “The H Word,” Darcie Little Badger talks about the differences between jump scares and dread. We also have author spotlights with our authors, and an interview with author Nathan Ballingrud.
Spread the word!
