Editorial: January 2019

Welcome to issue seventy-six of Nightmare!

We’re kicking off the new year with a new dark fantasy story from Natalia Theodoridou (“What it Sounds Like When You Fall”)—and trust me, you’ve never seen angels like these before. Vajra Chandrasekera brings us our second original, “On the Origin of Specie,” a story that will make you reconsider how you feel about the spare change in your wallet. Our reprints this month are by Paul Tremblay (“Headstone in Your Pocket”) and Laura Blackwell (“Bitter Perfume”).

In the latest installment of our column on horror, “The H Word,” Cadwell Turnbull writes about the real monsters in our world. Plus, we have author spotlights with our authors, and a feature interview with cartoonist and writer Emil Ferris.
