Read in September, 2012

It would seem like zombie stories aren't apt to be moving, thoughtful and provocative, but this story is all of the above. What does it mean to be family? What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to be alive? For all that Raising Stony Mayhall is about zombies, it's a quiet speculative fiction that never goes for the splattery gore-shot. I was entranced by Stony's matter-of-fact intelligence and his subtly drawn sense of yearning to fit in.
