Welcome to issue seventy-eight of Nightmare!
This month, we have a new short story from Cadwell Turnbull: “All the Hidden Places,” which is about life after a particularly monstrous apocalypse. Adam-Troy Castro takes us into the near future in his new short “Example,” which looks at a dark change to the corrections system. We also have terrific reprints by Kaaron Warren (“Bridge of Sighs”) and Seanan McGuire (“Carry On”).
In our column on horror, “The H Word,” writer Nibedita Sen writes about the body horror of pregnancy. Plus, we have author spotlights with our authors, and a book review from Terence Taylor.
We do have an exciting news update from our sister magazine, Lightspeed. Two our Lightspeed authors, José Pablo Iriarte and Sarah Pinsker, are 2018 Nebula finalists. Both José’s novelette, “The Substance of My Lives, the Accidents of Our Births” (lightspeedmagazine.com/fiction/substance-lives-accidents-births) and Sarah’s short story, “The Court Magician” (lightspeedmagazine.com/fiction/the-court-magician) were published in Lightspeed’s January 2018 issue. We are so excited and happy for them both!
Spread the word!
