From my review on Dread Central: There have been a lot of zombie-themed anthologies. And I do mean a lot. So whenever one comes across my desk, it is with no small amount of trepidation that I pick it up. With all that have come out over the past five years, some have been good, and some have been just god-awful. I'm happy to report that Dead Set is one of the good ones.

Separated into four sections, the stories in this book follow themes in the progression of the zombie apocalypse, which we all

Dead Set was the first anthology in which I was published. I have the honor of authoring (with Harry Shannon) the second story from the start. Jailbreak launched The Sheriff Penny Miller series of books, beginning with The Hungry (Jailbreak is actually the first two chapters of The Hungry).

The other stories in the book range from very good to absolutely outstanding. I recommend this book for all zombie fans.
