Here is The Dark #27 with two new stories.
The first new story is "Ghostling" by E. Catherine Tobler. -+- Welch had sex with ghosts, some of them famous people. But he does this for a reason, he is trying to find who murdered his mother. But he summons a special ghost to finally resolve things. Another great story from this talented writer,
The other new story is "Skins Smooth as Plantain, Hearts Soft as Mango" by Ian Muneshwar. -+- Harry is a young boy growing up in Provenance, Guyana where his father owns a mill. A beast lives in the folds of his gut that is all "only lips and teeth and fingers like needles". It consumes most of the food that Harry swallows and always wants more. But when Harry finds out what it really likes, things get worse. Interesting look at a different locale and a good story.
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 (see the How to Support link at the top of this review).
