I was reading through this book, Zombies: Encounters with the Hungry Dead, the other night, and I realized there are so many cool places you can go with the Zombie theme. This particular book is an anthology of stories about Zombies. It has stories written by some of the greats like Max Brooks, Ray Bradbury and Stephen King, however some of the best shorts come from some of the less known authors. However, this is besides the point.
This book captures stories from the Vudu zombie, people coming back to life (not interested in brains), and of course your traditional Romero-Zombies who are hungry for brains.
They all have their place in the Zombie lore, and this book pulls them together nicely.
If you get a chance to pick it up, be sure to check out the short story “Great Wall: A story from the Zombie War”. It’s actually a “deleted scene” if you will, from World War Z. Guess it didn’t make the final cut. It’s pretty cool all the same.
