Here's the 60th issue of Nightmare Magazine with two original stories and two reprints. 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 "Jade, Blood" by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. -+- A novice nun has never known love in her life. That changes when she finds a cenote, a kind of waterhole, that had been a place of sacrifice for the Maya. Interesting.
The second original story is "No One Prays to the Goddess" by Ashok K. Banker. -+-Hari returns to Bombay after living for forty-three years in Connecticut. He has been searching for a goddess known as the Fisher Queen for thirty-one years and finds a shrine to her. He finds more than that. Good story. Interesting use of Indian culture.
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.
