Here's the 51st issue of Nightmare Magazine with stories by Dale Bailey, Brian Evenson, Livia Llewellyn, and Priya Sridhar, along with Author Spotlights on all of them, the latest installment of a regular monthly feature, The H Word: Audio Horror, the Menacing Stroll by Alex Hofelich, an Artist Showcase on James T. Robb, and a Panel Discussion on Penny Dreadful.

Here's the 51st 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 "I Was a Teenage Werewolf" by Dale Bailey. -+- Using elements and characters from the classic Michael Landon film, the author changes and expands the basic tale into something else. Great buildup to a spectacular ending. The author, in the spotlight, tells us he wanted to explore why the teen werewolf is a popular story. The end gives an interesting ending to that question.

The second original story is "The Low, Dark Edge of Life" by Livia Llewellyn. -+- This story consists of excerpts from "the diary of one Lilianett van Hamal, an American girl who apparently lodged at the Grand Béguinage shortly before the Great Summoning of 1878 that left much of the city of Leuven in ruins". Lots of Lovecraft elements here but the style of the diary gets tedious after a while.

That's the current 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.
