Kind of an addictive book to read. Over the few days that I read it, I was slightly obsessed with it and whenever I wasn't reading it, I wanted to be reading it.
I absolutely love the front cover for this. Clowns are just the most awesome thing... and a zombie clown? Even better! There are illustrations at the beginning of each short story and poem, too, which I thought was a classy touch.
At the end of each story/poem Sam Stone has written a little about the inspiration behind it. I enjoyed read

This collection is split into three sections. The first seven short tales fall under the banner heading of Lucrezia’s Stories. Lucrezia is the main character from another novel called Futile Flame, which is part of the Vampire Gene series. The second section, called Other Bloody Jottings contains six one off short stories. The collection is rounded off with six poems

Of the thirteen stories that make up the main body of the anthology my personal favourites are listed below.

Fools Gold – I have to

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories and poetry.

The first part of the book deals with one of her characters from the Vampire Gene series of novels. Lucrezia and offers the reader further insight into one of the series most enigmatic characters. I particularly liked Fools Gold and Ameline because of their historical elements. I also really enjoyed Tar and Red as a sequence as it offered development and insight into Lucrezia.

For me the stand out of the Other Bloody Jottings was Chille

Zombies In New York by Sam Stone is one of my favourite books as it is one of the very few books which left me feeling jumpy afterwards especially when I read The Toymakers House. My favourite story besides Zombies In New York has to be Immortal Monster as I loved how this story was deliberately ambiguous and left the read to interpret their own ideas as to what really happened. I love that Sam does not shy away from the gore like some authors do. A nice touch I found was the authors notes at ...more

There are some great ideas here, even though I am no fan of zombies. Alas, the book was let down by some soft writing. If it had been tighter (perhaps it needed a stronger editor) the stories would've been fast-packed excitement. The first part deals with a character taken from one of Sam Stone's other books, from the Vampire Gene series. But I preferred the non-Lucrezia tales. By the way, I loved the cover art and the interior drawings.

'Mistress of the grisly and the glutinous' - GRAHAM MASTERTON

'A deceptively readable date with darkness – watch your step! This book is lit for the much more discerning chick (and cock) who likes to walk in the shadows. Relax with it, but be prepared for sudden jewels and little masterpieces – and the rug to be pulled from under your feet.’ - TANITH LEE on Killing Kiss.

HORROR/FANTASY AUTHOR.
