Here is The Dark #32 with two new stories and they are both really good.
The first new story is "In Her Bones" by Lindiwe Rooney. -+- Ayanda Sekibo hates Wekesi Mwani, the son of a gun-runner. Her father is his father's accountant and pocket-politician. But she hates him for what he did to her and she takes her revenge. But she must pay a price for that. A very well-told story which has a real sense of locale and tradition.
The other new story is "Her Brother and His Sister" by Bill Kte'pi. -+- While they are not named here, the brother and sister are obviously the famous siblings of what is assuredly the darkest classic fairy tale of all. The tale of a brother and sister, abandoned by their parents who encounter a witch in an appetizing house. This story tells us what happens afterward. It is filled with imagination and invention. Great 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) and support them if you wish.
