Overview

You can't kill the dead! Like any good monster, the zombie has proven to be ever-evolving, monumentally mutable, and open to seemingly endless imaginative interpretations: the thralls of voodoo sorcerers, George Romero's living dead, societal symbols, dancing thrillers, viral victims, reanimated ramblers, video gaming targets, post-apocalyptic permutations, shuffling sidekicks, literary mash-ups, the comedic, and, yes, even the romantic. Evidently, we have an enduring hunger for this infinite onslaught of the ever-hungry dead. Hoards of readers are now devouring zombie fiction faster than armies of the undead could chow down their brains. It's a sick job, but somebody had to do it: explore the innumerable necrotic nightmares of the latest, greatest, most fervent devotion in the history of humankind and ferret out the best of new millenial zombie stories: Zombies: The Recent Dead.

    Kept my attention to the very end (that's saying a lot for a book well over 1000 pages)

    What I loved most about this book was that I was introduced to the writing of authors that I might not have otherwise read like Walter Mosley (outside of my usual genre) and Justin Cronin (with whom I was previously unfamiliar).

    Good but sometimes too wordy

    This is a good book chock full of good old fashioned zombie stories butsometimes some of the stories arfar too wordy using big words that no one even uses to describe one thing or over explaining things and take forever to get to the point. Zombie stories dont have to be smart for someone to like them. Just stick to the basics of them that we all know and love. Gut busting brain munching goodness is all we realy need.

    Mehh REALLY!

    These stories are BORING! I can't believe that anyone can make a zombie story boring. The stories don't seem to go anywhere and they lack imagination. Or the imagination they used is so out of place that it makes no sense i.e. staying high so zombies can't track you, huh? I think I can have a better daydream about zombies and skip the stories. I did give it two stars because there are a couple of stories in there that are good enough or at least good enough to be able to tolerate. Geez, please people/authors if you don't "really" like zombies don't bother trying to write about them. It just comes off as ridiculous.
