The anthology starts out with Promises, a haunting tale of a newly turned zombie and his soon-to-be zombie love. My favorite is Hungry for You, taking place after the dead has risen, and where there is a ZombieAide helping the dead and zombie prostitutes walking the street. Other great reads is Dead Man's Rose, a tale you will remember long after you finished reading it, and A Prayer for Garlic, a twisted tale.
I do not read many anthologies, mostly because it is difficult to review them. Normally, by the time I am finished reading the book I have forgotten what the stories where about. Hungry for You is a short read, and the stories are memorable. I recommend the anthology to horror readers, and zombie lovers.
You might be a zombie if you've taken a bite out of your loved one,
A case of zombie prostitution,
If you are that hungry than you can swim for it.
Are you enticed? If you are, I believe you won't regret buying this.
Having said that, this haunting collection of short stories left me with an insatiable appetite. But, um, not for human flesh, or, you know, braaaaaaaaaaaains. Nope, I've got a fever. And the only thing that can cure it? Is more work by A.M. Harte.
Although, if you want to throw in some cowbell, that'd be nice too.
Right. Less irreverence, more review.
Ms. Harte really took Zombies to a whole new level for me. She took the mythos, turned it on it's head, and spun it right round. Multiple times. Threw them all in a box and then went way, way out of the box. Especially when you consider that the entire collection are little more than love stories.(She said, as if love stories are somehow small, fragile things she knows they're not.)
Ms. Harte writes with such beautiful subtlety that I really needed to pace myself reading Hungry For You. I could not go through the stories at a dead sprint, I needed time to let the stories simmer in, to really take in the full effect of the passion that drove the majority of the stories. It was a winding experience. I loved it!
Because these were the sort of stories I'd been hoping to get when I revamped this blog under `Fiction with a Dark Side'. This exploration of the darker side of love, the lighter side of death, the grays and in betweens.
Usually with anthologies, I like to go through the stories one by one and tell my readers here why I liked them. I'd really like to do that now but the temptation to give something away is just two great. One of the best things about Hungry For You is the subtle, yet powerful twists. I read each slowly, with awe, trying to anticipate `how is she going to do it this time', and often than not, I failed, delightedly.Read more ›
"Love is horrible. It's ruthless, messy, mind-altering, and raw. It takes no prisoners. It chews you up and spits you out and leaves you for dead. Love is, you could say, very much like a zombie."
In this haunting short story collection, anything is possible--tea helps a dying musician with his inspiration for an ode to his girl, a young wife is trapped in a house hiding a form of evil you would never expect, a counterspy ponders a mission that found him face to face with a deadly virus and it's carriers and promises are kept in life and in death .
I will admit, I'm not the biggest anthology fan. Not because I don't like short stories. Moreso, because I get so frustrated when I read an AMAZING short story that should be a full length novel...I want more. There are a couple such tales in this anthology entitled Hungry For You, by A.M. Harte. This anthology introduces you to various images of passion and love in a world that is dark and foreboding. The question remains will love or the horror prevail in the end?
A.M. Harte takes zombies and breathes a bit of new life into them. I love my zombies, but sometimes they get very tiresome and boring. Hungry for Love and the tales within gave me a bit of hope that there are authors out there willing to take some chances and make some changes to the genre. (within reason - don't make my zombie sparkle, please!!)

I've read a great many zombie/post apocalyptic stories and anthologies and thus was by far the worst. A mish mash of poorly written uninteresting stories.Published on July 5, 2013 by M. Heminger
Well written and flows nicely. I was sad to have it end. First story is very gripping and it holds you through to the completion. Must read.Published on February 4, 2013 by Brenda
