The Secret Skin by Wendy N. Wagner is a sawmill gothic that begins with June Vogel's return to Storm Break, her family's estate. Things in the great house aren't what they used to be. Doors slam in the night. Faucets turn on, untouched. Something is always watching, whatever June does. And when her brother returns with his new bride, deceit and betrayal threaten to destroy everything she loves.

Welcome to issue 123 of NIGHTMARE! Our short stories this month revolve around the home. We kick off the month with a zombie-meets-haunted-house story that will make you want to either deep-clean your house or burn it down: "Break the Skin if You Have To," by writing trio Emma Osborne, Cadwell Turnbull, and Jess Essey. Mari Ness brings us a sadder story of life indoors in her unsettling tale "Wallers." Our Horror Lab originals include "Three Symptoms of a Disaster," a poem of grief and catastrophe from Angela Liu. Chris DiLeo shares his unsettling experiences with the death of loved ones in his micro personal essay "Still Breathing." As for our nonfiction, Adam-Troy Castro recommends a book and a movie to enjoy while you're staying close to the fireplace, while Eric Raglin talks about heavy metal that scares in his "The H Word" essay. And of course we have author spotlight interviews with our short fiction writers to help you see what makes them tick. Plus, our ebook readers will also enjoy an excerpt from Erika T. Wurth's novel, White Horse.
From author Wendy N. Wagner comes a new adventure of vikings, lycanthropes, and the ties of motherhood, set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
In 1989, Gary Sheldon and his friends created their own saint.
In 2018, they discover it’s become a god.
Gary thought he’d escaped Kingston, Oregon, the town where his parents died and where, one tragic summer, he and a group of outcast teens turned to the supernatural to protect themselves from a deranged drug dealer. But when his wife lands her dream job as a high school principal, he is forced to return to his hometown.
As Gary reconnects with old friends and his son thrives on the football team, the past feels like a distant memory. But unsettling encounters and mutilated animals in the woods reveal that the Deer Saint is still at work. Now Gary must look into his past to find answers: Who is making sacrifices to the Deer Saint? And what do they want with his family?

Grab your weapons and prepare, for the enemy is on the move.
High fantasy and mighty conflicts go hand-in-hand. In great wars, armies rise to fight evil hordes and heroes struggle to push beyond their imperfections to save the day. These stories include more than just epic landscapes and characters…they also feature epic battles.
Imagine a doctor struggling to identify the spy who has infiltrated his company’s ranks and poisoned his colleagues or a boy suspected of murder by a king yet protected by a princess as he helps her father against his own people. Imagine a butcher discovering that he’s called to lead an uprising, or a First Born knowing that she must betray her own in order to save humanity.
The possibilities are endless, but at the heart they have this in common: soldiers—ordinary and otherwise–struggling against extraordinary odds to survive the day. They must withstand dark magic, dodge enemy blades, and defy the odds to survive SHATTERED SHIELDS.
