Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Stoker-award winning editor of the acclaimed, eclectic anthology The New Dead returns with 21st Century Dead, and an all-new lineup of authors from all corners of the fiction world, shining a dark light on our fascination with tales of death and resurrection... with ZOMBIES! The stellar stories in this volume includes a tale set in the world of Daniel H. Wilsons Robopocalypse, the first published fiction by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, and a tale of love, family, and resurrection from the legendary Orson Scott Card. This new volume also includes stories also from other award-winning and New York Times bestselling authors, such as: Simon R. Green, Chelsea Cain, Jonathan Maberry, Duane Swiercyznski, Caitlin Kittredge, Brian Keene, Amber Benson, John Skipp, S. G. Browne, Thomas E. Sniegoski, Hollywood screenwriter Stephen Susco, National Book Award nominee Dan Chaon, and more!

  

 

Review:

"Bearing out Golden's contention that zombie fiction is a tool for processing the fear of death, the 19 new stories in this uneven follow-up to The New Dead approach the theme from a great man angle. Gore-gulping zombies rampage through Ken Bruen's 'The Dead of Dromore' and S.G. Browne's 'Reality Bites.' Zombies are a part of the everyday landscape in John Skipp and Cody Goodfellow's 'All the Comforts of Home,' and a learning tool for children in Mark Morris's 'Biters.' The walking dead serve as a metaphor for negligent parents in Orson Scott Card's 'Carousel,' the cancer-ridden in Jonathan Maberry's 'Jack and Jill,' and conscienceless soldiers in Rio Youers's 'The Happy Bird and Other Tales.' Only Dan Chaon's 'How We Escaped Our Certain Fate,' a poignant meditation on love, loss, and mourning, is notably original. The others, competently written, will please casual readers but may not do much for passionate zombie enthusiasts. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
