"Not since those early Weird Tales issues has another periodical
successfully been a venue for such a massive number of innovative voices.
Deathrealm wasn't merely, as its tagline suggested, The Land Where
Horror Dwells; it is the place where the future of horror dwells.
If you want to know what night-terrors will be haunting you in the next decade,
then read this book. It works better than any crystal ball ever could."
The Horror Vault
"If you never read Deathrealm
magazine, this will show you what you have missed. If you remember the magazine,
it is like a visit from an old friend. Either way, this selection of stories
will leave you hoping there is another to come..."
A few years back, when small press horror magazines
were flourishing, one of the very best was Deathrealm edited by
Stephen Mark Rainey. The magazine is no longer with us, but Rainey has provided
this new anthology of stories in the same tradition. The roster of stories is an
excellent one, with fine work from Jeffrey Osier, W.H. Pugmire, Wayne Allen
Sallee, Elizabeth Massie, Jeff VanderMeer, and others.
Mark Rainey is author of the
Shadows: Dreams of the Dark (with
Blue Devil Island, and
Frontier; the short story collections
Devil & Other Weird Horrors,
of the Night, and
Other Gods; and over 80 works of short
fiction. He achieved questionable infamy and absolutely no fortune as editor of
Deathrealm magazine, and has edited the anthologies
Song of Cthulhu, and
Evermore (with James Robert Smith).
