Here's the 58th issue of Nightmare Magazine with stories by Caspian Gray, Stephen Graham Jones, Caroline Ratajski, and Cynthia Ward, the latest installment of a regular monthly feature, The H Word: Kiss the Goat by Nathan Carson, and an interview with Richard Kelly by The Geek's Guide to the Galaxy.

Here's the 58th issue of Nightmare Magazine with two original stories. You can find the issue and how to pay (or not) for it at the website (see link at the top of this review). Here are my reviews of the two new stories in this issue.

The first original story is "Promises of Spring" by Caspian Gray. -+- In 2004, high school students, Codi, Jason, and Manuela, summoned a witch and each made a wish. Jason paid the blood price. In 2009, there's another encounter with the witch that goes differently. Good story.

The second original story is "And With Her Went the Spring" by Caroline Ratajski. -+- A girl has disappeared and the authorities look for her for weeks. The boy she was with knows what happened and tells no one. The girl, dead but still conscious, meets another girl who was taken to the Underground and the spring went with her. The girl finds a way to enact justice. A very good, satisfying story.

That's the current issue of Nightmare Magazine. You can access the stories for free. Check out their website and support them, if you want to, in some way.
