Great collection. I bought it for the Mira Grant story, because I've come gradually to the point where I like Mira Grant so much that if she wrote the side of a cereal box I would buy it. And I wasn't disappointed. (As a side note, her name is actually a pseudonym for Seanan McGuire, but I can't vouch for her awesomeness under her own name, simply because I haven't read anything under her real name yet, horror being more up my alley lately than urban fairy tales - but I do plan to read those too, at some point soon.)The other stories were great too. Some standouts include one composed only of description of photos taken during one young man's experience of the zombie apocalypse - reminiscent of Cloverfield for some reason (big city? sideways view? confused protagonists who never have all the answers?)Another featured a group of survivors in an abandoned motel in the desert, and showed how humans can be defeated by the alliances they choose to make with each other. When you choose to save the ones you care about, you'd better make sure that someone is left who cares to save you. A moral that would also be applicable to a third standout story - the first one, "Alone, Together," written by the author of the series 'The Walking Dead', a comic book series, as well as a tv show I'm dying to see (no pun intended) as soon as Netflix releases it on instant or sends me the disks!This is well worth the small price of the e-book copy.

As much as I enjoyed the first collection the stories in this are much better. There were no "unreadable" stories in this one. Worth the purchase price.

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