Another collection from the publishing house that brought us Alt-Dead, this has a good selection of zombie mayhem in the 22 tales held within its pages.
Many are excellent, if standard zombie apocalypse fare, but there are other more unusual zombie tales worth checking out.Â The opening â€œThus Spoke Lazarusâ€ asks what if when Jesus brought Lazarus back to life, he didnâ€™t come back entirely as he was?Â Instead he becomes the father of a race of zombies decimating Israel.
Then thereâ€™s the gold-digging young man willing to ignore his dateâ€™s odd appearance and behaviour as he mistakenly believes her to be a rich heiress in David Williamsonâ€™s â€œBlind Dateâ€.Â Taking her to a zombie movie on their blind date may have been a mistake…
In R.J. Gauldingâ€™s â€œUltimate Anaâ€, we find that some girls are so desperate to get that skinny look that they use an underground website devoted to bulimia and size-zero actresses to become â€œUltimate Anaâ€ through zombification.
An excellent collection of well-written tales, whether youâ€™re a fan of zombie fiction or not this is definitely one to seek out and enjoy.
