Here's the 31st issue of Nightmare Magazine. It features stories by Desirina Boskovich, Usman T. Malik, Charles Payseur, and Nancy Kilpatrick, along with Author Spotlights on all of them and Artist Spotlight on cover artist Darius Zawadski, along with an Interview of Richard Chizmar by Lisa Morton and the latest installment of a regular monthly feature, "The H Word: Dropping the Vial" by Seanan McGuire

Here's the 31st issue of Nightmare Magazine, with the usual two original stories. You can find the issue and how to pay (or not) for it at their website (see link at the top of this review). Here are my reviews of the two new stories in this issue.

The first original story is "The Island" by Desirina Boskovich. -+- Ehen our narrator was five and her sister, Thea, was three, his parents moved them off the mainland, where there was a magical apocalypse, to an island they call Trasure. As time went by, siblings, Rock, Leaf, Bug, (all boys) are born and grow up quickly. Her father grows distant and her mother abusive. Then, Violet, a girl, is born. But things do not go well with the family. Quite chilling.

The other original story is "Spring Thaw" by Charles Payseur. -+- Adam is working with Lucas to see the effects of a worldwide thaw on the Antarctic. Like the spring in his boyhood Wisconsin, it brings up things frozen under the ice and snow. Something very strange shows up. Just an okay story.

That's the 31st issue of Nightmare Magazine. You can access the stories for free. Check out their website and support them, if you want to, in some way.
