Yeah, I read Unnerving. What, you jealous? Come at me. All the cool kids do it. Don't tell your mother. I order it with my dad's credit card and steam open the packaging when it arrives so he doesn't know I nicked his Unnerving Magazine.

So don't come at me like some sorta Unnerving superfan!! They don't have t-shirts but if they did I'd buy 'em. I'm a Day-One-r. I interviewed its eddietor. I LIKE THIS MAGAZINE, okay?

Unnerving issue #5 gets off to an immense start with Glug Glug by Aaron J. Householder and the sinister Red Room by Christa Carmen. Whilst only short, Householder’s tale is a fun, throwback style horror story that put a huge smile on my face and one that I felt was a little reminiscent of Stephen King. Christa Carmen’s Red Room is a different beast altogether. This story has some wicked imagery, a sinister and brooding atmosphere and a terrific ending. I’d go as far to say that this is one of ...more

I've been reading this magazine since it launched in December 2016 and with each issue it has really grown. I bought a years subscription for just $10 and so far it's been a really good investment. Issue 5 is brilliant and features some really great authors.

Unnerving's Issue 5 contains nine stories which are all really varied but united with their dark cores of horror. Its also really cool to see lots of female horror writers featured too.

Stand out stories for me include, Porcelain Skin, this

My favorite pieces in Unnerving Magazine Issue #5 are Gwendolyn Kiste’s essay “No Happily Ever After Here: Death and Dismay in Fairytales” and the short stories by KP Kulski and Jake Marley. Kiste warns of the happily ever after fallacy and explains how fairytales help us “navigate an inherently unsafe world.” Kulski’s science fiction horror tale “Shades of Igumi Mare” addresses the longing for home, while Marley’s horror story focuses on the violence of transcendence and the power of memory.

Unnerving Magazine, Issue #5
I was a contributor to Unnerving Magazine, Issue #5, but that doesn’t mean I can’t give some well-deserved praise to the wonderful authors I shared the pages with.

“Glug, Glug,” Aaron Housholder
Issue #5 starts with a short and eerie tale by Aaron Housholder. There’s enough uncertainty bubbling up from between the lines of the story that, in addition to the general unease the voice coming up through the drain elicits, the reader cannot be sure if the father’s

A cracking magazine! My favourite stories in this issue were "Glug Glug" by Aaron J. Housholder and "Ghoul" by John C. Foster. Had nightmares after finishing this last night so thanks for that! Will definitely be reading more of these!
