Here's the 43rd issue of Nightmare Magazine with stories by Ian Whates, Kaaron Warren, Rahul Kanakia, and P.D. Cacek, along with Author Spotlights on all of them, along an Artist's Spotlight on Cover Artist Yana Moskaluk and the latest installment of a regular monthly feature, The H Word: The Monstrous Intimacy of Poetry in Horror by Evan J. Peterson.

Here's the 43rd issue of Nightmare Magazine, with 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 "Reaper's Rose" by Ian Whates. -+- Our narrator is telling a policeman about the beautiful scent he smells just before violent death occurs right next to him. Perfectly done.

The second original story is "The Girl Who Escaped From Hell" by Rahul Kanakia. -+- Our narrator is a slacker whose daughter, Abby, living with his ex-wife, had a vision of going to Hell when she was injured in a car accident. Her mother had written a book about it and had made a lot of money. He was able to get custody of Abby. As Abby grows up, he wonders if she really believed it still. Interesting idea but it's hard to like this loser very much.

That's the 43rd 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.
