Here's the 53rd issue of Nightmare Magazine, with stories by Jessica Amanda Salmonson, Lynda E. Rucker, Andrew Fox, and Jeffrey Ford, the latest installment of a regular monthly feature, The H Word: The Weird at the World's End by Anya Martin, and an interview with J. Lincoln Fenn by Lisa Morton.

Here's the 53rd 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 "The Garbage Doll" by Jessica Amanda Salmonson. -+- Jessica (who may be dead) looks back on a time when she was young and met a woman who sang and played the ukulele and had a marionette who danced to it. How does she manage that? The kind of unsettling story that just creeps up on you.

The second original story is "Youth Will Be Served" by Andrew Fox. -+- Samantha is thinking about when she used to spend summers in South Beach, Florida when she was young. One day, she noticed five old ladies, one frailer than the others, swim out in the ocean. When they returned, the frailer one isn't with them. She notices this happening again and decides to investigate. What she found out has an impact on her current life, but one that surprised me. Very good story with a well-drawn locale.

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.
