Terry Weyna over at Fantasy Literature, has reviewed September’s issue of Nightmare Magazine, as part of her ‘Horrible Magazine Monday’ series of reviews. She says:

The best story in this issue is C.S. McMullen’s “The Nest,” the first publication for this story. It made my skin crawl, in all the best ways….

The story reminded me of George R.R. Martin’s “Sandkings,” though it is also entirely its own tale. It is very creepy.

When I’m writing horror, there’s nothing nicer than being called ‘creepy’! And ‘Sandkings’ was one of the first things of George’s that I ever read, and remains one of my favourites.

If you haven’t read The Nest yet, check it out for free at Nightmare Magazine here.
