Authors who doodle: Exhibit B Zombie anthologies are a time a dozen nowadays but in the 80s this book was Da Bomb. The authors had a field day with this. Most of them go for dark comedy laced with splatter-punk horror. Best stories? Stephen King's "Home Delivery". May be a little hard to find but well worth hunting for if you're a zombie fan.

In horror fiction, zombie stories were as dead as the zombies themselves. Then, in , this little gem of a collection came along and among it's pages were some heavy hitters from the horror and sci-fi genre.
If you're looking for chills and scares, keep moving. You won't find them here. But, if you're looking for good, campy fun ala Tales from the Crypt types of zombie stor In the s, the only person that was doing anything significant with zombies was the Godfather himself, George Romero. But, if you're looking for good, campy fun ala Tales from the Crypt types of zombie stories, by all means, sink your teeth into this perverted bag of goodies.
And I mean perverted. Many of these stories have either zombie sex or the biting off of penises in there somewhere. Those two alone were worth the price of admission. Here's my take on each one. Blossom - Chan McConnell The dangers of hooking up with someone you don't know and having an exotic fetish all while the zombie apocalypse is beginning.
Enjoyed the irony of this one. I've had issues with the two Laymon novels that I've read being extremely juvenile with unbelievable characters or story lines. But, this short story was the exact opposite. In fact, I loved this short story so much that I'm going to give his novels another try. Just ok. Not my favorite. Trying to determine what can of soup to buy out of all those choices on the shelf will send her running from the store without buying anything. But when the dead begin to rise on Genneseault Island, Maddie has already forced herself to cope.
Good characters but felt incomplete. It seemed more like a snippet from a longer story. These soldiers aren't doing what you think they are. Nice little twist. Martha is a waitress at the local diner and the focus of many of the male residents lustful attention.
But, pretty Martha only has eyes for the young deputy sheriff, Bobby Mack, and the other men don't like this. They don't like it at all. And when things go to hell, they come to take what they want.
Elaine is the nurse in a hospital where they have patients that rapidly shake their heads back and forth as if they're saying no, no, no and they have to restrain them from shaking as they try to feed them. But, they don't eat or attack them and then the one rips his own head off at the end.
Hey, if you "get" this story, please explain it to my dumb ass. It was little more than a boring set of philosophical ramblings. A slight twist at the end that was too little too late to turn this yawn-fest around. An absolute chore to get through.
Who would've thought? Pretty ridiculous even for a zombie story. But it had an interesting hypothesis on what happened to the zombies over time. Totally rad. Boyett An assault on an Ecosphere project in the Arizona desert with trained zombies. Nice writing style and character development. The zombies can think and begin to wage their own war. Lots of interesting ideas in a story of irony about a zombie who was previously a jazz saxophonist.
Good stuff. Lansdale A bounty hunter is bringing his fugitive across the desert when they run into a whacked out cult leader who also happened to have caused the zombie apocalypse. Schow The morbidly obese kid that was the butt of all the jokes in high school squares off against a television evangelist and his army of disciple zombies. A piss-your-pants hilarious story. Warped fun.

Book of the Dead (anthology)
Book of the Dead is an anthology of horror stories first published in , edited by John Skipp and Craig Spector and featuring a foreword written by George A. Romero erroneously credited as George R. Romero in first print editions of the book. All the stories in the anthology are united by the same premise seen in Romero's apocalyptic films, depicting a worldwide outbreak of zombies and various reactions to it. The first book was followed three years later by a follow-up, Still Dead: Book of the Dead 2 , with a new group of writers tackling the same premise, though the second book put the stories in order according to their imagined chronology of the zombie takeover. The Book of the Dead compilations are regarded as classic anthologies in the horror and splatterpunk genres, featuring a great number of famous names including Stephen King , Joe R.
