Overview

THE DEAD WALK AMONG US!

Of all the ghoulish monsters, zombies are the most horrific. Reanimated corpses of real people--perhaps even a former friend or relative--these undead brethren rise from the grave to devour your delicious living flesh.

Far more sophisticated than the brain-eating mobs popularized in movies, zombies are as diverse as living humans, and this collection presents a frightening blood-rich cross section of zombie literature, including stories set in the early 19th century, the Great Depression and the futuristic zombie apocalypse of tomorrow.

Bringing together the greatest zombie authors--Stephen King, Richard Matheson, Clive Barker, Harlan Ellison, H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Ramsey Campbell, Joe R. Lansdale, Kim Newman, Michael Marshall Smith, Joe Hill and many others--The Dead That Walk offers terrifying tales of dread that will drag you screaming into a nightmare world where death does not mean the end, and those who survive are next on the menu.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
There have been two other recent zombie anthologies. The Living Dead, edited by John Joseph Adams, did a great job of collecting previously published stories, while The New Dead, edited by Christopher Golden, gathered new material. This new collection splits the difference; half of the stories are reprints. With a couple of exceptions ("The Crossing of Aldo Ray" and "Tell Me Like You Done Before"), it's the older works that stand out—in particular, H.P. Lovecraft's "Cool Air" and Kim Newman's "Amerikanski Dead at the Moscow Morgue." Robert E. Howard's novella "Black Canaan" is also included, but this reviewer found its casual racism offensive. VERDICT Consider this purchase if you don't have any other books of zombie stories, but otherwise only for large horror collections.

    The Dead That Walk is a great collection of zombie stories, and the cover alone seems to frighten some people I know. Highly recommended.
