Welcome to The Deadlands

Vāsaya-viruta, said my Bengali grandmother: the cries of crows, who come to us as messengers from the dead. Gheibheadh tu na feannagan- firich, said the Gael one: You would seek the forest crows. On the latter, Dwelly elaborates: proverb; said to persons who boast of doing impracticable things. I suppose that writing this letter is one of those things.

About The Deadlands

The Deadlands is a new monthly speculative fiction magazine. We publish short stories, poems, and essays about the other realms, of the ends we face here, and the beginnings we find elsewhere. It is an adventure into the unknown, to meet those who live there still, even though they may be dead. Death is a journey we all will take, but we’d like to peek at the map before we go.
