Sam Rebelein

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 the hardest difficulty. Hard to say which of these is his greatest accomplishment. Sam's work has appeared in a number of speculative fiction publications, including Bourbon Penn, Coffin Bell Journal, The Dread Machine, Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year, and elsewhere. His award-nominated story "Black Fanged Thing" was listed as a stand-out piece of 2018 on Barnes & Noble's "Sci-fi & Fantasy Blog." HarperCollins' horror and crime imprint William Morrow is publishing Sam's debut horror novel EDENVILLE in Fall 2023, and his debut short story collection THE POORLY MADE AND OTHER THINGS in 2024.

Sam Rebelein recommends
The Redemption of Morgan Bright (2024)
Chris Panatier
"A triumph. Panatier has created a world I never wanted to leave, but by the time I hit the third act, I dreaded turning the page. The Redemption of Morgan Bright is a brutal, beautiful, relentless, and tragic journey into hell. I freaking loved it."
The Vein (2023)
Steph Nelson
"I freaking loved this book. The Vein contains a vastly complex and intriguing web of characters similar to works like 'Salem's Lot. This town feels vibrant and alive, the woods breathe upon the page, and the chapters just fly by. I was truly addicted to this book."
