Issue 79 of Nightmare Magazine is now out and includes original fiction from Mari Ness (“The Girl and the House”) and Dennis E. Staples (“The One You Feed”), along with reprints by Stephen Gallagher (“Shepherd’s Business”) and myself (“The Ballad of Boomtown”). There’s also a regular column on horror, “The H Word,” plus author spotlights and a media review from Adam-Troy Castro.
The stories are made available to read online for free, week by week. If you can’t wait, the whole magazine is available to read now as an ebook. A subscription to this excellent magazine costs $23.88/year. (Purchase links here).
I thoroughly recommend Stephen Gallagher’s “Shepherd’s Business”, which I first read in “New Fears”, Mark Morris’ excellent horror anthology.
My story, “The Ballad of Boomtown”, was originally published in Black Static Issue 28 (2012).
