Here's the 50th issue of Nightmare Magazine, with stories by Tananarive Due, Michael Shea, Sandra McDonald, and Tim Pratt, along with Author Spotlights on all of them but Shea, the latest installment of a regular monthly feature, "The H Word: The Empty Bed" by Colin Dickey, and an interview with Jack Ketchum.

Here's the 50th issue of Nightmare Magazine, with two original stories. You can find the issue and how to pay (or not) for it at its website. Here are my reviews of the two new stories in this issue.

The first original story is "Migration" by Tananarive Due. -+- Jazmine wakes up one night wanting to kill her fiancÚ, Cal. She yells at him to leave, then goes out on her own. She wakes the next day in the middle of nowhere with blood on her shirt. She remembers the first time she was possessed when she was eight-years-old and almost burned down the house. He grandmother had performed an exorcism and she thought that was the end of it. It was not. A truly horrific look into the mind of someone possessed or insane.

The second original story is "When You Work for the Old Ones" by Sandra McDonald. -+- Needless to say, you're off the books and very secretive. You do really odd jobs. You don't tell your wife. Her pregnancy is a bit different. Told in a dispassionate way so that the horror just increases. Really well done.

That's the 50th issue of Nightmare Magazine. You can access the stories for free. Check out their website (see the link at the top of this review) and support them, if you want to, in some way.
