The dead that walk : zombie stories
Jones, Stephen
Adult Fiction DEAD

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

There have been two other recent zombie anthologies. The Living Dead, edited by John Joseph Adams, did a great job of collecting previously published stories, while The New Dead, edited by Christopher Golden, gathered new material. This new collection splits the difference; half of the stories are reprints. With a couple of exceptions ("The Crossing of Aldo Ray" and "Tell Me Like You Done Before"), it's the older works that stand out-in particular, H.P. Lovecraft's "Cool Air" and Kim Newman's "Amerikanski Dead at the Moscow Morgue." Robert E. Howard's novella "Black Canaan" is also included, but this reviewer found its casual racism offensive. VERDICT Consider this purchase if you don't have any other books of zombie stories, but otherwise only for large horror collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
