This is an anthology that sticks to it's theme very well. I think from a literary perspective it's doing many things very well and I can understand why certain stories were chosen even when they seem a little out of left field.

This is not just an anthology of stories about creatures being in the place of zombies, but a series of stories that work counter to nearly every trope associated with zombies. The stories are not just challenging in the sense of playing counter to shambling corpses

I love short horror stories. It's the perfect medium for good scare. Or even better a good scare with a laugh. This anthology was an excellent example of that. These stories were scary, smart, funny, and totally enjoyable. I was going to get this book 4/5 because while I loved the anthology it wasn't perfect BUT Jeff Strand's story about sentinel cherry pop is worth an extra star. I had tears running down my face from laughing so hard when I was reading it.

This collection is lots of fun. The anthology is about characters related to but not including zombies, expanding on the battle between the zombie hordes and the thinking protagonists.
