A strong candidate for both my fave release of the month and also for this month's best cover. Zombie - a book with a no-nonesense, 'does what it says on the tin' title is an anthology of, er, zombie stories put together by Christopher Golden. With a stellar cast list, this is fantastic value for money, choc full of flesh-eating nastiness from the likes of some of the best names in genre fiction - Joe Hill, Mike Carey, Tad Williams, Jonathan Maberry, Kelly Armstrong, John Connolly, Max Brooks, Tim Lebbon &etc. Read it or they'll eat your brains!
"RESURRECTION! The hungry dead have risen. They shamble down the street. They hide in backyards, car parks, shopping centres. They devour our neighbours, dogs and policemen. And they are here to stay. The real question is: what are you going to do about it? How will you survive? How will the world change when the dead begin to rise? Bram Stoker-award-winning author Christopher Golden has assembled an original anthology of never-before-published zombie stories from an eclectic array of today's most popular horror, fantasy, thriller and literary writers. Inside are tales about military might in the wake of an outbreak, survival in a wasted wasteland, the ardour of falling in love with a zombie, and a family outing at the circus. Here is a collection of new views on death and resurrection. With stories from Joe Hill, John Connolly and many others, this is a wildly diverse and entertaining collection - the last word on the undead."
