This week's story: “When You Work for the Old Ones"

By Sandra McDonald, appearing in Nightmare

Read Sandra McDonald’s “When You Work for the Old Ones”

This week’s story has a lot of things which I will say, quite firmly, that I do not like: Lovecraft mythos, second person narration, body horror, a Twist at the end. But the story is short enough (and has enough to say about the world) that it all works.

“When You Work for the Old Ones” was published in Nightmare Magazine in November 2016. Nightmare publishes lots of dark shit like this—go check it out.
