NIGHTMARE was founded on the core idea that all horror is real horror. The whole point of this magazine is that horror fiction is vast. It is inclusive. Horror is about all people and for all people.

The People of Colo(u)r Destroy Horror! special issue exists to relieve a brokenness in the genre that’s been enabled time and time again by favoring certain voices and portray

I found this special issue of Nightmare magazine as a bound anthology. It includes original fiction, reprint fiction, art, and nonfiction. The purpose of the anthology is challenging exclusionary conceptions of horror. Like all anthologies, the quality of the entries varies. Still, I enjoyed this work. I feel it successfully expanded my understanding of horror.

This is unsurprisingly one of the best issues of Nightmare Magazine--I loved several of the short stories in both the original and reprints section, and the interviews included were also very interesting to read.

A short horror tale about a murderous sister that jumps perspectives and ends with a chilling musical scene. Perhaps closer to a 2.5. Even though it was a short story, I would have liked to hear more of the sister's motives in killing her kin.

Merged review:

A Diet of Worms is a frightening tale of a young man working his shift at a movie theater who gets stuck in a time fluctuation and lives out most of his life over the course of that shift. Why? Who knows! But the story of his aging and his su

4/5.

Positive: My favourite story was The Taming of the Tongue, I honestly want a whole YA book about Cat and the zwelgen. Other favourites included Wish You Were Here, A Diet of Worms, The Show, Wet Pain, and my second favourite of the issue was Monstro. There were 10k words of it but I needed more! All of the stories in this issue were excellently written, all of the characters were unique and enjoyable.

Negative: There were one or two stories I didn't enjoy.

Not usually a horror fan, but this was part of the Kickstarter I backed. Really enjoyed the Victor LaValle interview and Alyssa Wong's essay. Nadia Bulkin's Wish You Were Here stayed with me a long time after I read it. I think you call that haunting. :) Diaz's Monstro was another fav. Will definitely seek out more from the authors I didn't know.

Interesting stories. First time I had read Nightmare.

Highlights:

A Diet of Worms - in my opinion probably the best of the bunch this issue. Juicy horror.

"Wet Pain" and "Monstro" are both strong contenders - the characterisation and world building sets these apart. Definitely worth a read.

Lowlights:

"The Show". It felt a touch too generic for my tastes.

"Horror is..." article a frustrating read. Felt more like a rant than an article. Could have achieved more if fleshed out.
