(Review from the author)

bookshelves: with-my-stories
Recommended for: zombie freaks

As a disclaimer, I have mention that I am one of the contributors to this anthology.

I also have to mention that I'm not really into zombies, but the challenge of writing a haiku about them interested me.

The book is rather short of content - I think it would have been better to have more entries, but the anthologist can only work with what they receive, so perhaps there were not a lot of submissions. There were a number of good ones, but there were also several that did not follow the 5-7-5 pattern requested, and some of them were a bit forced. I did notice that, as another reviewer mentioned, the haiku were arranged in a way that hinted at a story - or at least a time line, so the anthologist did do a bit more work here than it might appear.

If you really have a thing for zombies, pick it up (too bad there's not a cheaper Kindle version). Perhaps they'll drop the price a little, too.
