Sam Rebelein holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College (with a focus on Horror and Memoir), a certificate of graduation from the Lubbock Area Square & Round Dance Federation, and that one trophy in The Last of Us Part II for when you beat the game on permadeath mode. Hard to say which of these is his greatest accomplishment. His award-nominated work has appeared in several speculative fiction publications, including Bourbon Penn, The Deadlands, Coffin Bell Journal, Pseudopod, Press Pause Press, Shimmer, Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year, and elsewhere. His debut novel EDENVILLE ("[A]n essential read for horror enthusiasts" —Booklist) is out now from William Morrow, and his follow-up collection of stories set in the same fictional universe, THE POORLY MADE AND OTHER THINGS, is coming for you in early 2025.
