I'm an unapologetic fan of zombie stories. This volume, masterfully compiled and annotated by John Joseph Adams, continues to plumb the depths of the genre. All of these writers are playing in Romero's sandbox, but are constructing castles of their own. The best tales here are those that pick up on the tantalizing lead offered by Romero in Day of the Dead (Bud!), and there's an overall emphasis on the human side of the zombie apocalypse: the physical and emotional impacts, the re-ordering of society, etc. This large volume will help one bide the time until the next issue- or next season- of The Walking Dead arrives. Adams' introductory notes are erudite and demonstrate a deep understanding of the possibilities of the genre. These stories are not just about flesh-eating zombies: as Rick Grimes put it, "We are the walking dead!"
