  • Bram Stoker

    Best known for his masterpiece of horror, Dracula, Bram Stoker wrote a number of other novels and many short stories, all with supernatural themes or filled with a physical terror reminiscent of Poe. The title story, “Dracula’s Guest,” was originally part of the great novel but was excised and published separately. The accompanying stories, such as “The Squaw,” “The Judge’s House,” and “The Burial of the Rats,” are classic tales of the macabre in their own right. From torture chambers and murderous prophecies to vengeful ghosts, these haunting stories illuminate Stoker’s mastery of horror.

  • Seanan McGuire

    Lightspeed was founded on the core idea that all science fiction is real science fiction and that science fiction is vast. It is inclusive. Science fiction is about people, and queer people, no matter how they identify, are a big part of that. They always have been. They're just sometimes harder to see. So, in the interests of visibility, Queers Destroy Science Fiction! shows just how wide the spectrum of sexuality and gender identity can really be.This special issue features original science fiction short stories from John Chu, Kate M. Galey, Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, Chaz Brenchley, Felicia Davin, Rose Lemberg, Jessica Yang, K. M. Szpara, Amal El-Mohtar, Tim Susman, and Susan Jane Bigelow....read more

  • Oliver Onions

    At first blush, Widdershins is a conventional haunted house story involving an unsuccessful writer, who moves into an empty house in hope that isolation will help his failing creativity. His sensitivity and imagination are enhanced by his seclusion, but his art, his only friend, and his sanity are all destroyed in the process ... The story can be read as narrating the gradual possession of the protagonist by a mysterious and possessive feminine spirit, or as a realistic description of a psychotic outbreak culminating in catatonia and murder, told from the psychotic subject's point of view. The precise description of the slow disintegration of the protagonist's mind is terrifying in either...read more

  • Jane C. Loudon

    Published anonymously in three volumes in 1827, when the author was only seventeen years old, The Mummy! is, as she describes it herself, a strange, wild novel that-to an audience nearer her future than when Loudon imagined it-is filled with striking similarities to our modern world, including a form of the internet. But it is also filled with brilliant flights of fancy: her court ladies wear hair ornaments of controlled flame; surgeons and lawyers may be steam-powered automatons; people holiday by moving their entire home on rails. The visionary technological setting contrasts with a morality seemingly gone awry as it falls to the reanimated mummy Cheops to try to find a role in this...read more
