Here is The Dark #25 with two new stories.
The first new story is "In Your Wake We Sin" by Hadeer Elsbai. -+- Madiha, Menna, and Sherouk hire a sahira (who does magic) named Halima when their friend, Ashraqat is killed, so they can talk with her and find out how it happened. They consult her twice but find out nothing. Now, a djinn has been visiting Madiha. On a third try with Halima, Madiha finds out the true horror. A nicely chilling tale with a good stinger at the end.
The other new story is "Seams" by Karolina Fedyk. -+- Alina has a curious hobby, wearing the skins of women she has killed. But it's not an easy thing to do. Another unsettling little tale.
The Dark has its own brand of unique horror and is certainly worth reading. It deserves your support. Check out their website (see link at the top of this review). If you want to give them more support, go to their Patreon site at Patreon for The Dark.
