    Nightmare Magazine: Queers Destroy Horror – Review

    Nightmare Magazine is a literary magazine dedicated to collecting quality short dark fantasy and horror for its readers. I found the magazine when I happened upon Alyssa Wong’s “Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers” years ago.

I would have happily given the 2.99 just for Wong’s story alone; it was an easy price to pay. After reading the rest of the pieces, I can assure everyone it’s a fantastic investment if you’re at all interested in dark fantasy or horror.
