Product Details


“Rollicking . . . Over-the-top . . . Hard to resist.” —The Wall Street Journal

“We would do well to page through a wonderfully thorough new anthology of short fiction called, straightforwardly enough, Zombies! Zombies! Zombies! . . . Showcas[es] countless terrific writers, known and unknown. . . . If you like your zombies with a dose of literary erudition and horror fiction with character, intelligence, and atmosphere, be [sure to] pick this one up.” —SF Weekly
Presents a . . . nuanced portrayal of death brought to life—one to which Gen Xers, Gen Yers and others probably haven’t been previously exposed. . . . high on drama, tension and a feeling of the macabre. . . . I’d say it’s a no-brainer.” —Mike Householder, Associated Press
“Splendid. . . . A full dance card of undead heavy hitters that range from the timeless (Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Richard Matheson) to the timely (Scott Edelman, Joe R. Lansdale, Dale Bailey).. . . . Zombie aficionados will eagerly embrace this controversial and comprehensive collection.” —Library Journal
