Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
You don't have to be a zombie-lover to enjoy this outstanding follow-up to 2008's The Living Dead. Anthologist extraordinaire Adams has assembled 43 stories that showcase strong writing and imagination. Unexpected settings include a lost world with surviving dinosaurs (Brian Keene's "Lost Canyon of the Dead") and a pirate ship (Amelia Beamer's "Pirates vs. Zombies"). Steven Barnes and Tananarive Due's "Danger Word" and David Wellington's "Good People" contain powerful depictions of humans facing extinction at the hands of the undead. Cherie Priest revisits the walled, zombie-infested Seattle of her Clockwork Century books in "Reluctance" and Mira Grant adds to her Newsflesh trilogy with "Everglades." For the most part, the authors convey horror through suggestion rather than graphic gore. Readers will hope for many further additions to the series even after the zombie craze passes. (Sept.)
Library Journal
The acclaimed first volume of The Living Dead was nearly all reprint stories. This new collection is mostly original, with some stories commissioned specifically for it. Contributors include Bob Fingerman (see above); David Moody (see below); new masters like Max Brooks, Jonathan Maberry, David Wellington, and Robert Kirkman; and old-school splatterpunks David Schow and John Skipp. BZG It's like a wonderful, rotting smorgasbord. Dig in!

Zombie completists need look no further than The Living Dead 2. Editor John Joseph Adams has put together an impressive collection…

    Way better than the first one

    This has more of the zombies that everyone knows and loves and less of the lame voodoo type stuff.
