Here is The Dark #24 with two new stories and two reprints.
The first new story is "The Bone Beaters" by A.M. Muffaz. -+- The story opens quietly with a man named Tentzin leading his yak up a mountain, bringing supplies to Nurgu, his young wife Tashi and Nurgu's son, Dolgo. But the nature of the people unfolds and there is true horror at the end. Very well-written.
The other new story is "Queen Midnight" by Eliza Victoria. When a giant sea monster comes out of the depths of the ocean, it's first a social media sensation. But the world will go through more changes. Another great story where the horror builds to the conclusion.
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). If you want to give them more support, go to their Patreon site at www.patreon.com/thedarkmagazine.
