The dead have risen. God help the living.

It's too late to run. The zombies are everywhere. They stalk through urban jungles and across the carefully manicured lawns of suburbia. They shudder to unlife on the bloodiest battlefields of the Civil War and in the deepest tunnels of interstellar mining colonies. They lurk on your street, in you company boardroom, in your own bed

With any anthology you'll have a mix of stories you like, and stories you are less bothered about. In this collection of 25 zombie horror stories there were 12 that I really appreciated, enjoyed or admired, which is a greater success ratio than many other anthologies I have read. That's praise. Many of the other 13 stories I enjoyed, just not quite as much.

My favourites were:

- Consumption by Steve Eller (terse and fittingly emotionally dead)
- Susan by Robin D. Laws (incredibly nasty)

This is an anthology of zombie stories. Wait, wait. It's good. Also, my only published story appears in it. "Sifting Out the Hearts of Men," written with my husband, is about a zombie invasion in the midst of the American Civil War.

Great zombie anthology. Don't read it if you're squeamish about necrophilia, though I'll charge that the story with the broad getting gang raped by zombies was distasteful.

Plenty of variations on zombies between behavior, locations, and reasons for reanimation. Lots of stories in this tome!
