About Me


Maggie Slater is a writer of speculative fiction whose work has appeared in Apex Magazine, Daily Science Fiction, and Zombies: More Recent Dead from Prime Books, among other venues. She lives in an 1800s farmhouse in New England with two half-tamed boys, her husband, her parents, and at least one benign ghost. When she has a (nearly) quiet moment, she enjoys Haruki Murakami novels, sampling craft beer, and hoarding cheap notebooks. She is currently working on her first novel.

  1. Hey Maggie, I am not 1, 2, 3, 4, and i don’t quite fit 5. I am a Kenyan writer, now a professional web content editor for a publishing company called Storymoja here in Kenya. I am a movie/TV addict, too, looove Sci-fi and casually flirt with horror films. I’m a comic/animation buff too. I just loved this description of yourself, I had to write you. Will keep up with your posts :) *wave all the way from Africa*

    1. Hello there! *waves all the way back from Portland OR!* Thanks for stopping by, and I do hope you’ll find lots worth reading about here. Keep in touch! ^_^

  2. A 4.5 here. I kept noticing in my wordpress backend that a lot of people were clicking links to your blog from mine (even though I didn’t have any links; must be their related posts function, I gather) so I thought I’d come over and check out what my handful of visitors were checking out. I’m glad to see there’s connection between your blog and mine, what with you being a submissions editor for a genre mag and me being an aspiring genre writer (though not so much on the horror side). That being the case, I’ll have to stop by from time to time just to see if I can learn anything interesting about the editor’s side of the industry.

    I have to say, there’s something unsettling about that picture of you, there… though I can’t quite put my finger on it.

    1. Hi Stephen! It’s probably all that red ink. Yeah. That’s gotta be it. ^_^ Thanks for stopping by!
