Here's the 52nd issue of Nightmare Magazine, with two original stories. You can find the issue and how to pay it (or not) 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 "Loneliness Is in Your Blood" by Cadwell Turnbull. -+- On Haiti, a creature called a sukunya extends its life by feeding on people. We see it over many years as it adapts to the changing times and passes on its powers. Interesting horror story from the point of view of the monster.
The second original story is "Redcap" by Carrie Vaughan. -+- Violet must tend the sheep or her and her sisters will starve. When one goes missing, she searches for it. When she finds it, she also encounters a demon called The Redcap that taunts her with bad riddles. Good little fairy story.
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.
