Stephen Mark Rainey (born Chattanooga, Tennessee, May 2, 1959) is an author of novels, short stories, and various works of nonfiction. From 1987 to 1997, he edited "Deathrealm," a magazine of horror and dark fantasy fiction, for which he won several awards for Best Editor.

Rainey's novels include "" (co-written with Elizabeth Massie, HarperCollins, 1999, based on the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows), "Balak" (Wildside Press, 2000), "The Lebo Coven" (Thomson Gale, 2004), "The Nightmare Frontier" (Sarob Press, 2006), and "Blue Devil Island" (Thomson Gale, 2007). His other published works include over 90 short stories and four short-story collections. He has also edited three anthologies, including "Deathrealms," 2004, and a tribute to Edgar Allan Poe titled "Evermore" (Arkham House, 2006, with James Robert Smith).

As a teenager, Rainey created "Japanese Giants," a fanzine devoted to Godzilla and other daikaiju movies. Today, the magazine is still being produced, under the able editorship of Ed Godziszewski of Chicago, Illinois.

Rainey grew up in Martinsville, Virginia, and has lived in Athens, Georgia and Chicago, Illinois. He currently lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, with his family.
