Over a century ago, The Brothers Grimm compiled an iconic collection of stories. Over forty years ago, American cinema was infected by the walking dead. A few years ago, classic literature fell to that same infection. Now, it is time for the logical, but simultaneously unlikely, fusion of the often mistakenly labeled Grimm's Fairy Tales to fall prey to the gaping maw of undeath. Volume One of Gruesomely Grimm Zombie Tales offers up the first twenty-five stories... with a liberal dose of blood... gore... and of course... zombies.

I do not have a copy of the printed edition.
The stories are send-ups of the original Grimm Tales with the addition of the living dead and I have to say that all of them were done with expert timing and a deft hand.
Darla herself lent so much inflection to each story, especially the reading of some of the more "4th wall breaking" comments put in masterfully by Todd Brown.
I laughed so many times at the comments and the inflection/prose of the narration that I found myself having to rewind many times to hear the story as my cacophony was too much for the audio track level. During the Rapunzel story I nearly fell off the treadmill at the gym, much to the horror of the patrons around me as I was laughing so hard at the "hair issue" comments.
