Welcome to Study Marry Kill*, an American history newsletter from me, Alexis Coe. I’m a historian and New York Times bestselling author, and I’m excited to send fantastic, consequential, and freakishly grotesque tidbits from history to your inbox every Saturday. 

This will be the most frequently I’ve ever published. My books, podcasts, series, and documentaries often take years to produce, and while I write an op-ed every couple of months, the form doesn’t off much flexibility, and social media is too ephemeral. But most of all, Study Marry Kill is something I’ve craved for a long time: A place to do whatever I want!

For now, the newsletter is free — thanks to the support of Substack — but will only be available subscribers. Those who don’t subscribe won’t be able to read anything beyond the first two posts.

There is a paid option that allows you to comment and access AMAs (every 4-6 weeks). The best way to support my work is to support the places that make it possible: At the bottom of each post, I’ll ask that you follow a related institution or historic site on socials and, if you’re able, donate. (I’ll be offering incentives, like a personalized not or a signed book.)

*No dead people will be harmed in the making of this newsletter.
