The amazing anthologist and editor John Joseph Adams has decided to Kickstart a new online magazine, Nightmare Magazine, featuring stories of horror and dark fantasy. Like Adams’ other publication, Lightspeed Magazine, Nightmare will have both original fiction and reprints every month. The first issue will feature stories from Laird Barron, Sarah Langan, Jonathan Maberry, and Genevieve Valentine. Assistant editors were announced two days ago (I saw via twitter, they may have been announced elsewhere, as well): E.C. Myers, author of Fair Coin, and Erika Holt, an Inkpunks contributor. The magazine has been fully funded, but there are still a few days left to get in on the first issue! (Note for writers: Nightmare is not yet open for submissions. The Kickstarter page says it’ll be open to submissions shortly after it’s funded, so make sure to check its website for further updates.)

Another Kickstarter project to look at is Fireside Magazine, Issue 2 (and beyond). Fireside Magazine is a quarterly magazine that publishes short fiction and comics. If successfully funded, the second issue will feature stories by Stephen Blackmoore, Damien Walters Grintalis, Kat Howard, and Jake Kerr, and a comic by Steven Walker and the magazine’s editor, Brian White. The cover artist for issue 2 is Galen Dara. Contributors for issue 3 will be Daniel Abraham, Elizabeth Bear, and Mary Robinette Kowal, with the comic written by Rachel Deering. Fireside 2 is almost 50% funded, with a litte over a week to go. The line-up for issue 2 (and 3) are all stellar writers; if you enjoy speculative short fiction, you won’t be disappointed.
