Welcome to The Deadlands

Issue 21 of The Deadlands contains original fiction from Sam Rebelein; poetry from Omodero David Oghenekaro, and Olaitan Humble; and nonfiction from M L Clark.

One by one, I see them sliding through the glass of that mirror. I picture them walking through miles of cave on the other side, and maybe then they gaze around in awe as they step inside the chamberstar, the origin of which, I imagine, is older and colder than time itself. Chamberstar probably isn’t even its real name, just one nickname grown over time. I imagine its true moniker is ancient and unpronounceable.

Chamberstar: The Accabon, Sam Rebelein

    About The Deadlands

    The Deadlands is a 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.
