Féli wanted the pain to end. She looked over to where the soldiers had left her mother dead, skirt torn, blood on white skin. Féli wanted the pain to end. Why was the strange melody, that strange song, echoing around in her head? She’d heard it sung before, to a small child wrapped in dirty rags and clutched to a trembling breast.


From the Ashes Flew the Ladybug, Alexandra Seidel

About The Deadlands

The Deadlands is a new monthly speculative fiction magazine. We will publish short stories, poems, and essays about the other realms, of the ends we face here, and the beginnings we find elsewhere. It will be a journey 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.
