Nocturnal Lyric and the Happy Torturer

A couple years ago, I had a horrible dream. I was being tortured by a guy who seemed so happy and apologetic at the same time. Even as he was inflicting pain, he continually apologized for it. That story became the Happy Torturer and it was published in a small horror zine, the Nocturnal Lyric. The story was later incorporated into Her Brother’s Crow which came out in the Prism Review.

Alas, I heard the Nocturnal Lyric is coming to an end! It was very sad news, though of course, I am thankful to them for having published the story!
