Here's the 32nd 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. Here are my reviews of the two new stories in this issue.
The first original story is "The Red Light is Blinking" by Kealan Patrick Burke. -+- Someone is kidnapping internet trolls and imprisoning them in cells not allowing them to shower and giving them only Doritos to eat and Mountain Dew (highly caffeinated) to drink. They have connections to each other so they can harass each other until one of them just gives up and dies. Good look at bullies.
The other original story is "Rules for Ordinary Heroes" by Sandra McDonald. -+- The story follows a man, referred to as "you" whose home life is not the best and is cheating on his wife. It's all dome through references to movies and movie heroes, which "you" is not. Another good story.
That's the 32nd issue of Nightmare Magazine. You can access the stories for free. Check out their website (see link at the top of this issue) and support them, if you want to, in some way.
