For Linda and Laura - who have kept me from becoming one of the living dead myself lately, and who I trust will know when to hit me in the head with a baseball bat.
First words
I've never thought of them as zombies; I never called them zombies.
A little over four years ago, I started compiling Zombies: The Recent Dead.

Book description
You can't kill the dead! Like any good monster, the zombie has proven to be ever-evolving, monumentally mutable, and open to seemingly endless imaginative interpretations: the thralls of voodoo sorcerers, George Romero's living dead, societal symbols, dancing thrillers, viral victims, reanimated ramblers, video gaming targets, post-apocalyptic permutations, shuffling sidekicks, literary mash-ups, the comedic, and, yes, even the romantic. Evidently, we have an enduring hunger for this infinite onslaught of the ever-hungry dead. Hoards of readers are now devouring zombie fiction faster than armies of the undead could chow down their brains.
It's a sick job, but somebody had to do it: explore the innumerable necrotic nightmares of the latest, greatest, most fervent devotion in the history of humankind and ferret out the best of new millenial zombie stories: Zombies: The Recent Dead.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Zombies have an enduring hunger for human brains-- and humans have an enduring hunger of zombie fiction. Explore the necrotic nightmares of the undead: voodoo sorcerers, viral victims, literary mash-ups, the comedic, and yes, even the romantic.
