I really wantes to like this anthology a lot more than I did. Too many of the stories were too similar. Too many weren't really stories and were just patisches. And too many were just too short and should havw been fleshed out more. Which ones were which? I really don't know. I'd have to back and try to place title to story, and since they're so similar that takes a lot of work. Which one has the smaet zombies? Which one has rhe melting zombies, the fast zombies, the kid zombies, the demon zombies, the virus zombies? Who cares.

These twenty-three short stories focus on zombies in all walks of life (pun intended) as the authors provide insight into the various ways of the ¿Living Dead¿. Each tale is well written as the contributions go way beyond Romero¿s Living Dead films. The entries were predominantly written in 2004 with three in 2005 two as ancient as 2001, and one in 2003. As far as this reviewer can tell, these have not appeared in print before. Most of the authors are relatively unknown (how can they be otherwise with zombies running wild in places like West Virginia and San Francisco) though Brian Keene has won a Stoker Award. Their entries are solid fun, as we learn how to properly dine on human leg that tastes remarkably similar to a chicken wing. The compilations range from fresh human meat struggling to survive in a world in which the superior being is the undead to zombies in outer space to reality zombie TV. Some tongue in cheek, some science fiction all are fun horror thrillers that showcase the various lives of zombies beyond the usual stereotyping of flesh eating slobbering slobs. Sub-genre fans will definitely want to read this tribute to zombie mania while most other horror readers will also appreciate these dining on human gourmet collection.----------- Harriet Klausner

I am a Sucker for Zombie Fiction. I have just about read all the genre has to offer. I had seen all the rave reviews The Undead was getting, and even few saying that it was the best Zombie Anthology since Book of the Dead. I LOVED Book of the Dead so I got me a copy to see for myself. I wasn't disappointed. The Undead has some of the most original and entertaining Zombie Fiction ever written. There wasn't a story in The Undead I didn't love, but Home by David Moody, Death Row by James Reilly, and Hotline by Russell Calhoun has to be my favorites. I had to go back and read them again once I was finished. They were true pleasures to read. The Undead is destined to become a classic in the Zombie Genre. Zombie Fans can't afford to miss this one. You should definitely believe the Hype and grab yourself a copy. You wont be disappointed. The Undead is the best Zombie Anthology since Book of the Dead no question about it. Five Stars
