    1. The Destroy Project excited me from the first time I heard about it, but Nightmare magazine is the first of the three issues I've read. I'm not nearly as much of a Horror reader as I am a science fiction and fantasy reader, so go figure.Of the original pieces, It Feels Better Biting Down worked the best. The more narrow focus and creative take on body horror connected with me and creeped me out.The best story, though, was the reprint from Tanith Lee, Black and White Sky. Magpies start inexplicab [...]


    2. Several of these stories made me uncomfortable and I'd rather not read them again, so mission accomplished for horror! The editor says that it was an entirely unexpected coincidence that twins feature prominently in many unrelated stories in this edition, but I read it and now I'm having twins. Spoooky.


    3. I wanted to love love love this but it was just okay. I didn't find the horror horrifying or scary or even that unsettling (bar a few exceptions).



    4. When I first heard about it, I loved the idea of the Destroy series. This was the first one I picked up, in part because of the cover which I think is great. And the content was amazing as well. Not all of it, it's an anthology and there were a few stories which I didn't care for. But the original short story "This is Not for You" by Gemma Files was amazing, as well as the re-print of "Black and White Sky" by Tanith Lee. Tanith Lee is awesome and I so need to read more of her stuff. I also reall [...]


    5. I wouldn’t normally review a magazine from last month, but the October issue of Nightmare Magazine is something special, and it’s still available. In this issue, Women Destroy Horror! Issue 25 is devoted to horror written by women, the result of a Kickstarter originally intended to help women destroy science fiction (in the June 2014 issue of Lightspeed Magazine) that met its stretch goals. (Full disclosure: I contributed to the Kickstarter.)The guest fiction editor of this issue is Ellen Da [...]


    6. 3/5. Positive: My favourite story was This is Not for You, a very dark story about a cult of female serial killers. I also liked Sideshow, Unfair Exchange, and It Feels Better Biting Down. Overall, it was a quick read that I mostly enjoyed, with a lot of dark and grim elements that weren't scary, but were disturbing.Negative: There were a couple of stories that were kind of boring.


    7. Will finish this another time. I've read all the fiction, I think, but with the exception of one or two stories I was unimpressed. I'm not interested in the extracts. Hopefully the non-fiction will be more interesting, but since this edition has been very "meh" so far, I really just want to put it aside for now.


    8. The first story in this issue is "This Is Not For You" by Gemma Files gave me nightmares. It is an amazing, creepy, perfect slice of life worthy of Shirley Jackson. I have to seek out more stories by this author!


    9. As another reviewer said, I wanted to love this issue (as much as I loved its sister issue, Women Destroy Science Fiction), but I couldn't. The fiction was oddly unaffecting -- even the iconic reprints. The roundtable discussion is the main reason to pick this issue up.


    10. Some of these were good but holy shit that JCO story. I have never read anything more fucked up in my life and now I can't get it out of my head. Wish I hadn't read it.
