Welcome to issue twelve of Nightmare!
A bit of good news to report: Kat Howard’s story “Breaking the Frame” (from our sister-magazine, Lightspeed), is a finalist for the World Fantasy Award. Your humble editor is also again a finalist (now for the fifth time), this time in the Best Anthology category, for Epic: Legends of Fantasy. So congratulations to Kat, and thanks to all of the judges and voters who made these nominations possible. And for what it’s worth, “Breaking the Frame” is a lush, dark fantasy that I suspect many Nightmare readers would also enjoy, so check it out!
With that out of the way, here’s what we have on tap this month:
For our September offerings, we have original fiction from C.S. McMullen (“The Nest”) and Linda Nagata (“Halfway Home”), along with reprints by The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman (“Alone, Together”) and legendary horror scribe Peter Straub (“A Short Guide to the City”).
We also have the latest installment of our column on horror, “The H Word,” plus author spotlights with most of our authors, a showcase on our cover artist, and a feature interview with horror author/homicide detective Joe McKinney.
That’s about all I have for you this month, but before I step out of your way and let you get to the fiction, here are a few URLs you might want to check out or keep handy if you’d like to stay apprised of everything new and notable happening with Nightmare:
