Women in Horror: Recommended Short Stories (Part 2)

Better late than never, here are two more wonderful short stories in celebration of women in horror month.

“Need” by Lisa Tuttle

Available to read here here. A foreboding piece of “quiet” horror. When I lived in Ohio, we were within walking distance of a cemetery that we found ourselves visiting quite often. The images of Corey walking through the cemetery remind me of that cemetery and has caused this story to stick with me since I first read it.

“Construction Project” by Desirina Boskovich

Click here to read this one. A claustrophobic piece of fiction that seems to close in on the reader as they venture further into the story. The first story I read in Nightmare Magazine, which ended up cementing my love for the market.

Just a few more days to win a copy of Damien Angelica Walters’ debut novel, Ink.
