SHE WILL NEVER LIE TO YOU.
This week we're delighted to bring you THE TUNNEL by Natalia Theodoridou, her second story for sub-Q! In it, a young couple on a train journey across Europe enter a tunnel that is much longer than they thought. PLAY IT NOW.
Natalia Theodoridou is a Media & Cultural Studies scholar based in the United Kingdom. Her strange stories have appeared in Clarkesworld, Apex, Shimmer, and elsewhere. Occasionally, she tweets as @natalia_theodor. Read sub-Q's 2015 interview with the author and look forward to Kerstin Hall's new interview with Natalia Theodoridou this Thursday.
We want stories with horror and stories about the holidays. (Some would say there's no difference.)
We accept reprints. We need submissions. We pay pro rates. Show us what you've got.
PUZZLE US THIS
To solve this week's puzzle, find the photolink: the one word suggested by every photo in the set below. Then replace the blank in the set's link to reach the next stage. (Size of blank does not necessarily reflect size of answer.)
For a wordplay reward, Tweet us @subQMag with #subQsolved and the following secret handshake: another item that would fit in the set. Don't be afraid to get creative. We're dusting off our most painful puns to serve you.
Until next time, thank you, and stay alive.
