Written By Sean Markey

Sean lives in an old farmhouse in northern Vermont, and is pretty sure the house isn’t very haunted… He works as a marketer during the day and is also the publisher of The Deadlands, a little magazine about beginnings and endings you may or may not have heard of.

We’re here, fresh from the underworld, and we’ve got this golden envelope containing the entire ToC for our upcoming anthology: The Best Death Stories of 2023.
