NIGHTMARE is an online horror and dark fantasy magazine. In NIGHTMARE's pages, you will find all kinds of horror fiction, from zombie stories and haunted house tales, to visceral psychological horror.
Welcome to issue ninety-seven of NIGHTMARE! Happy October, the spookiest month of the year! We're kicking things off with a creepy little morsel from David Tallerman, "Not Us," which adds a sprinkle of Invasion of the Body Snatchers to a choice serving of bad marriage. In "The Monkey Trap," Adam-Troy Castro takes us to a book dealer with an incomparable collection-and a pretty creepy method of organizing it. We also have reprints from Kaaron Warren ("Furtherest") and A.C. Wise ("The Secret of Flight"). In our nonfiction features, we have Premee Mohamed discussing empathy in the latest installment of our column on horror, "The H Word," plus we have a book review from Adam-Troy Castro, and of course, author spotlights with our authors.
