The Healthy Dead is a novella by Canadian author Steven Erikson, set in the world of his Malazan Book of the Fallen epic fantasy series. It continues the story line of Bauchelain, Korbal Broach and Emancipor Reese, three characters who had a cameo appearance in the novel Memories of Ice and were the focus for the previous novella, Blood Follows.[1]

In 2014 it had a rating of 4.5 out of 5 on Amazon.[2]

The novella was published in the United Kingdom by PS Publishing in 2004, and in the United States by Night Shade Books in December 2005.

The follow-up to The Healthy Dead is The Lees Of Laughter's End, also published by PS Publishing in 2007. The follow-up novella actually takes place in a gap of time between the end of Blood Follows and the beginning of The Healthy Dead, although it was written later.
