Editorial Reviews

Review

This nicely detailed story [Edward M. Erdelac's Night of the Jikininki] turns the honorable samurai legend on its stone-cold ear with some of the most loathsome characters and acts ever. --David T. Wilbanks, Page Horrific

"Zee Bee & Bee (a.k.a. Propeller Hats For The Dead)" by David James Keaton offers an insightful riff on trend horror and contemporary pop culture very much akin that of early-'90s Wes Craven... --Fangoria Magazine, November 27, 2010

"Dead Juju" is a wild, graphic ride--a fast-paced array of elements including religion, politics, race relations, news media, socio-economic classism, contumacy all handled with skillful precision...

(Zee Bee & Bee) ...read beyond the obvious genre affection and surprisingly heart-felt details of everyday life and you come away with a strange nostalgia and fear for a self-absorbed culture's obsession with their next slice of entertainment. --Page Horrific, November 20, 2010

FANGORIA MAGAZINE--As the book's title indicates, DEADCORE achieves all extremes. Violent, perverse, depraved--and, as such, quite recommended...DEADCORE features four ferocious zombie novellas that don't pull any punches. --Fangoria Magazine, November 27, 2010

Customer Reviews

Gratuitous and disgusting ideas do not make a good story.
Timothy L. Brown
It's a very smart and entertaining reading all four titles, best zombie reading since Max's Brooks "World War Z".
Luis Diego Chacón
All of that said, I'd be quick to admit that this just isn't my kind of thing.

Format: Paperback
Deadcore is a book which was released last year and was completely missed by me and most reviewers. I happened upon it on Goodreads a couple of months earlier and upon seeing the blurb details, I was heavily intrigued by the variety and the imaginative spectrum offered. One of the authors Ed Erdelac kindly offered a review copy and since I was already a fan of his Merkabah series, I was extra excited to see how his historical story would match along with the zombie safari, the bed & breakfast story, etc.

The first story is Dead Juju by Randy Chandler and is the longest novella of the collection. It's a pretty hardcore zombie story detailing the beginning of the apocalypse. Of course the tipping point in this story is the presence of a gigantic eye in the sky which has blinked and causes all sorts of weird stuff to begin. The story has been divided into 29 further sections which has various characters interacting and facing off against zombies and ghouls. The story is mostly set in Arizona and a bit in Mexico as well. The story totally sets the tone for the book as it has action, gore, violence, sex in enormous amounts and begs the question as to what is truly happening and is it the end of the world? It also brings faith & religion in to the equation of life but not in a way which upsets they rhythm of the story. A wild ride and with an ending which leaves the readers as shocked as it does with its opening. Dead Juju opens Deadcore with a visceral thrill which is hard to ignore and equally tough to stomach.

The next story is Zee Bee & Bee, it's a story set in first person about a bed and breakfast where newly and otherwise married couples go to "pretend" attacked by zombies.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Michael Brown on October 15, 2011
Format: Paperback
I recently stumbled across this collection when it was recommended by a friend earlier this year. It was the perfect summer vacation read. I couldn't put it down until I finished the four stories within the week. Each short story is a completely different and fresh approach to the zombie genre that get increasingly more compelling as the book progresses. Traditional zombie themes were intermixed with different elements across the stories ranging from noire and pulp overtones to another more current zombie hipster experience and then a medieval Japanese setting, and finally a more post post-apocalyptic setting where survivors are doing well enough to organize recreational outings to hunt zombies in the wild. After finishing Deadcore, I went searching for another in the series but didn't find one so I went on a zombie and horror bender watching some of the early Romero movies and reading World War Z. While I enjoyed World War Z, I feel the short stories in Deadcore were superior in development and story telling and more satisfying than the ultra short vignettes of Z.

I hope there is a Deadcore II in the works!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mark Tinta on March 11, 2011
Format: Paperback
Nicely-done anthology. Two of the tales stick out, particularly Erdelac's story that just had me picturing a zombified Kurosawa epic with its story of zombies in feudal Japan. But Keaton's story is the clear winner of the set, an imaginative and original homage to zombie movies that never once comes off as smug or ironic in its tone. That itself is a major accomplishment. "Zee, Bee, and Bee" is filled with references to classic zombie cinema of the past, worked into a truly unique idea that fans will appreciate. Nice work all around by some interesting new voices in fiction.

When I was looking at amazon's library at first I didn't know what to buy, download or simply read. Already downloaded I read it in a single day, there was no stopping it, when I read the first three pages I was already hooked. It's a very smart and entertaining reading all four titles, best zombie reading since Max's Brooks "World War Z".
