RESURRECTION

The hungry dead have risen. They shamble down the street. They hide in back yards, car lots, shopping malls. They devour neighbors, dogs and police officers. 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?

Stoker-award-winning author Christopher Golden has assembled an original anthology of never-before-published zombie stories from an eclectic array of today's hottest writers. Inside there are stories about military might in the wake of an outbreak, survival in a wasted wasteland, the ardor 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, Max Brooks, Kelley Armstrong, Tad Williams, David Wellington, David Liss, Aimee Bender, Jonathan Maberry, and many others, this is a wildly diverse and entertaining collection... the Last Word on the New Dead.

Review:

"The 19 provocative, haunting, and genuinely unsettling original stories in this zombie anthology move the genre beyond its usual apocalyptic wastelands. David Liss's novelette 'What Maisie Knew' is a stunning and gruesome meditation on the banality of capitalism and evil. Mike Carey's 'Second Wind' is a haunting tale of an undead stockbroker who comes to question whether he ever truly lived. Lovers of more traditional zombie fare will also not be disappointed. Joe Hill's ingenious 'Twittering from the Circus of the Dead' tells a classic slasher film story through Twitter posts, while Jonathan Maberry's heartbreaking 'Family Business' describes a ruined America populated by kindly monks and zombie hunters. This powerful anthology shines a bright and unflinching light on the fears of death, decay, and loss that underpin America's longstanding obsession with the undead."

There's some great interpretations of the zombie mythology in this collection of short stories. It's perfect for a plane ride, a bus ride (watch out for interesting looks from your fellow riders!) anytime that your attention might have to wander a bit. The stories are easy to breeze through - the spacing of the pages is quite large so there's not as many stories here as it appears at first glance. However, it's enough for an entertaining few hours. I give it 3 stars because there is a bit more misogyny here than I'm comfortable with. Of course there is going to be gore and violence in zombie stories but what this book is really lacking are stories written by women and stories featuring women (zombie or not) that don't need to be rescued or punished in some way. That kind of thing gets real old real fast for we female lovers of fiction of all sorts.

I have been looking forward to this collection for some time now. If you liked THE LIVING DEAD Zombie collection then THE NEW DEAD is a gotta-have to add to your collection. 19 great stories (some better than others) and contibuiting authors such as Joe Hill, John Conolly and Jonathan Maeberry make this Zombie collection one of my favorites to date.
