Neil Gaiman's "The Mushroom Hunters" was my personal favorite in the collection, along with Mary Soon Lee's "Advice to a Six-Year-Old" and all her other poems, Linda D. Addison's "Sycorax's Daughters Unveiled", Cislyn Smith's "Hot", and Shannon Connor Winward's "The Raven's Hallowe'en."
Comparing the movies and the book. The novel has more room for exposition than the film, and in general this additional information is really interesting.
Beyond the Gates is one of those slow-burn horror films that may bore some viewers but the nostalgia and character building are going to make fans of the rest.
I found some of the stories in Issue 46 of Nightmare Magazine to be a little opaque, making for interesting reading and leaving me to think about possible meanings.
I'm rating this 5 stars for a very good reason: nearly ever story in the collection are themselves 5-star worthy.
I'm reading the most recent issues of Nightmare Magazine and also going back to the beginning to read every issue. Fantastic issue!
Oh, wow, this is a great issue. I haven't read a lot of horror short fiction in recent decades and I've been curious to see what writers are writing about. Thus, I'm a new subscriber; it has already been rewarding.
The poems and flash fiction in this issue tend to feature ornery characters, leading to lots of humor and dark twists.
Several absolutely fantastic and often chilling flash horror, fairy tale, and science fiction stories.
Promising first issue.
I remember fondly buying a few editions of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror anthologies edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling in the 1990s. I was in my twenties and while many of the stories and their level of craft were opaque to me at the time, I felt I had stumbled onto a magical tradition.
