Read in August, 2009

To be honest, I wouldn't have bought this book if I'd known of the existence of Vampire Haiku because it diminishes the novelty of Zombie Haiku, and really, that's the book's biggest appeal. I didn't buy Zombie Haiku because I was expecting amazing writing; I bought it because it took something I like (zombies) and placed it into a form of writing I never would have thought to use. Other than being taken by the idea of it, the book itself isn't all that extraordinary so seeing the same concept applied to another subject leaves me feeling disenchanted and disinterested. Really I'm just a nitpicking, complaining bitch. The book still makes a thoughtful gift for the zombie-obsessed.
