Undead World is an anthology of 22 "creepy" authors and their tales about the undead! Tales of a world so wry different from ours...or is it?!
A quick read full of chills, thrills, guts and gore.

Defenseless: A story of Death & Decay is a gripping short story from the Death & Decay series by R.L. Blalock.
...A moment in time of a boy, Dylan, as he tries to understand as his world is turned upside down. I've read and loved her other books in the series, Devour and Divided. If you get the chance you

Defenseless: A Story of Death & Decay.
From a 6 yr old point of view during zombie outbreak just heartbreaking and leaves you with goosebumps!

It's little hard to write review for Anthology and with 22 Author's!!!
So with that going to say they all did amazing! Yes was there errors or mishaps in some of course but I don't really care with it being anthology I over look that because 1. Mostly all story's are new and have to be done lot

I was gifted a copy of this book while waiting for my pre-oredered e-book to arrive.
There is something for everyone in this collections, from zombie clowns to a bazaar festival.A few of my favorite short stories were, 1) By David Simpson, Alone together. Even a lone NG can lose youself a in the music... if you are lucky you may just find a way out.2.) By Christopher Mahood, The Festival, a unique twisted practice. Last but not least 3.) By Grivante Zombie Exterminators, I lab rats.Who doesn't l

I'm a bit tired of all those zombie related stories, but I got to say for the hardcore fans who can't get enough of it. This anthology is a good one, nothing really great or special about it, but casual zombies stories that works well. Like all anthology some are betters then others, but a good overall and various style of zombies stories has well. Better then expected!

Undead Worlds does a spectacular job of highlighting a wide variety of zombie fiction ranging from the bleak despair of 'Alone Together' to the romantically sweet 'Fallen'. Many of the short stories feel like prequels but they stand alone, not requiring the reader to know the author's wider world. The truly good stories of the anthology do make you want to read more of that world.

Highlights of Undead World were:

Ugh ... I think I'm really zombied-out now. These storie could easily have been different chapters in the same book. Very similar and I really didn't develop any sympathy for any of the characters. I am now going to search for horror minus zombies.

Undead Worlds

Pretty good book....I love bottom stories, especially about zombies...It was well written but not scary enough for me...lots of blood and gore though

Typical anthology

Anthologies are always a roll of the dice. None are all great, few are all bad. The stories here are exactly like that. Some, the stand alone ones are the best, others that are segments from novels or series, are a bit disappointing since they ended erratically. I'll leave it to the individual to decide which were which.

Some very good ones with an interesting take on the Zedds. Others are just bad. Deadpool was an odd one. It was a tease because most of the decent authors were only available on unlimited

Welcome to the Undead Worlds featuring zombies and their world. This time around I am giving a great big shout out to eight of the authors from the Undead Worlds.

This has been one amazing journey with all these zombies. I love me some zombies. I really liked reading all the stories rooting for all the people and following along with them on their journey through the undead worlds. If you love zombies then give this one a try you won’t regret it!

Hello, this is a fair account of the ZULU ALPHA from different authors perspectives. Some are real good, some are okay, some are kinda lame and some are just plain not good. Thanks.

What a Halloween treat

This selection of short stories came as a shock in a good way. I didn't think 22 Authors could get together and write some really awesome zombie stories . Each one has its own characteristics, bringing new storylines to thier well loved books. As I read through the collection I thought this would scare the s*%\t out off some off my friends. So guess what they are getting for Halloween. But seriously this collection is a good introduction to the works of these Wonderful Auth

Kindle Unlimited, various writers but actually noticed it because had stories by Zombie Exterminators by Grivante and On the Rocks by E.E. Isherwood. 22 stories all together so overall worth the read {means no didn't luv them all but for the most part good collection}.

This isn't a book of short stories, it's a teleporter that will take you to 22 different zombie apocalypses. Experience the universe of each author's book series without committing to a full-length novel. But be warned, you'll soon want to dive completely into their worlds!

There's a range of stories, from short to long, humorous to dark, triumphant to defeated. Not sure what zombie book you want to read next? Consider this your chance to drive before you buy. (I hope you chose to drive the tank,

Love an anthology of stories about the Undead

Found this anthology to have been edited & curated well. Also liked having additional info regarding the writers and their contact info. I would recommend this to anyone who still enjoys the changes that the undead would wreak upon the day to day life.

A Good Read

For me, the difficulty with zombie stories is telling them in a fashion that doesn't make them feel repetitious, and Undead Worlds for the most part does that though it neglects zombies based on the supernatural–as opposed to science gone awry–with is a bit of a pity.

I "devoured" this book in a couple of days, only taking breaks (begrudgingly) to cook for my family and let the dog out. I'll be adding
