Here's the 49th issue of Nightmare Magazine, the People of Colo(u)r Destroy Horror! issue 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 "A Diet of Worms" by Valerie Valdes. -+- The "You" of this story shows up for work at the movie theater late and winds up staying a real long time. Perfectly done!
The second original story is "Wish You Were Here" by Nadia Bulkin. -+- Dimas is leading a group of Ugly Americans on a tour of Bali. For some reason they ask for ghost stories. One of them, Rose, lost her son in a car crash and wants to use something called jelangkung to contact him. Dimas tells her that is not a good idea. He has a ghost of his own that haunts him, his girlfriend, Ani, who died in a fire. Things do not go well with any of them. Pretty creepy story.< p>
That's the 49th 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.
