Publisher's Summary

The living dead are more alive than ever! Zombies have become more than an iconic monster for the 21st century: They are now a phenomenon constantly revealing as much about ourselves - and our fascination with death, resurrection, and survival - as our love for the supernatural or post-apocalyptic speculation. Our most imaginative literary minds have been devoured by these incredible creatures and produced exciting, insightful, and unflinching new works of zombie fiction. We've again dug up the best stories published in the last few years and compiled them into an anthology to feed your insatiable hunger….

A well blended mix

What did you like best about Zombies: More Recent Dead? What did you like least?

none of the stories were the same, each one took a different spin on the zombie storyline

Very weak sequel.

I did not enjoy this book. Very few stories were at all interesting. I found this to lean more toward fantasy (yes, I get that zombies are fantastical) rather than horror. They were not remotely frightening and, to me, they were rather tiresome.

Some good, some okay

The stories were quite good, I'm not a big fan of the fantasy type zombies but the stories on the whole were good. I had a hard time with Gavin's narration...her voice is grating to me, but might not be to others.

So many Zombies so little time.

Many of the tales have a new twist or the ending is a surprise. i love zombie tales. i love the struggle that is overcome and the ingenuity of the human spirit. A platitude but still my opinion.

Good form.

I enjoyed this tremendously. Having listened to this one - I'm going to grab the first one. The Recent Dead.
