Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Perkins (Cowboy Lover) collects 21 zombie romance stories full of humor, horror, and love. Jaime Saare's "I Heart Brains" has an SF twist: a man infected with "the z-virus" shopping in a megamart for a gently used replacement body. In Jan Kozlowski's powerful "First Love Never Dies," a police detective learns of an undead sex slave operation run by his ex's abusive father. In Regina Riley's poignant "Undying Love," a long-suffering zombie seeks his lost lover. Gina McQueen's "Apocalypse as Foreplay," Jeanine McAdam's "Inhuman Resources," and Dana Fredsti's "First Date" are zippy stories about the sexy turn-on of successful zombie hunting. Stacy Brown's "The Magician's Apprentice" offers chills as a woman willingly gives up every bit of herself to please a man. Michael Marshall Smith's "Later" makes one man's heartbreak palpable when his girlfriend has a fatal accident. Voodoo magic, zombie-creating viruses, and inexplicable zombie apocalypses all make appearances, but effective storytelling moves beyond the reanimation and into the hearts and minds of the characters.

Review

“For the purists and naysayers who believe zombies are incapable of feeling anything but an insatiable appetite for human brains, here’s a collection of stories that demonstrates the enduring hunger for love after undeath.  Even though a zombie’s heart has stopped beating, it can still ache with desire.” --S.G. Browne, author of Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament

"Hungry for Your Love gives a delicious new spin on 'undying love'!  Each story is a slice of wicked zombie fun!"  -Jonathan Maberry, author of The Dragon Factory and Patient Zero

"A wonderfully twisted undertaking (pun intended), Hungry for Your Love is a many-faceted feast of love, loss, sex, heartbreak, rotting flesh, and romance from beyond the grave." --Christopher Golden, bestselling author and editor of The New Dead

It will probably come as no surprise to learn that this is the ONLY zombie romance anthology ever.

Lori Perkins' Introduction is a must read explanation for how this seemingly insane project ever came to be; as you no doubt expected, some daring, even some "double dog daring" was involved. Suffice it to say that Ms. Perkins encountered some skepticism: "We posted the thesis on Facebook, and hundreds of readers said they couldn't imagine romance with rotting corpses."

"Oh, ye of little faith."

The only clanking comes from her attempts to justify people's fascination with vampires and (some) people's fascination with zombies in terms of recent sociopolitical and economic events.

Please.

Stick with mortal humanity's age old quest for immortality paired with the price that must be paid for it, and you'll be on firmer ground. We'd ALL love to live forever, depending on the price we'd have to pay for it, and we'd all expect (Someone) to have to pay a heavy price for it.

Jeremy Wagner's "Romance Ain't Dead" kicks off the lunacy with an old-fashioned (pre-Romero) tale about the kind of zombies your grandmother used to make,...

if your grandmother was from Haiti. Chicago North Shore resident Bruce loses the love of his life in a tragic Lake Michigan boating accident, but neighbor Doctor Wyclef Moliare, leading brain surgeon and Haitian immigrant, offers him an alternative. The result is surprisingly touching and sweet,...

in a stomach-churningly creepy way, and the romance anthology you swore could never be written is well and truly underway.

The stories range from silly and cute to erotic and weird to are you kidding me? Because there are so many stories I'd have to review in order to get the full on idea, I'd like to just point out some of my favorites. And not review them. I do a horrible job at reviewing things like this. I'm complaining. Perhaps for filler.

Francesca Lia Block's (The Frenzy, Open Letter to Quiet Light) "Revenants Anonymous" introduces us to Casey, whose eye is set on Ed - both of which are revenants attempting to fight their natural urges of feasting on flesh by going to Revenants Anonymous meetings. At times, it's hard to tell whether these are zombies, or the aftermath of suicides. They're people attempting recreate a humanistic emotion, to feel - well - alive again.

In "Captive Hearts," Brian Keene (Dead Sea, A Gathering of Crows) thrusts us into a devoted marriage, in which the wife stands by her husband no matter the circumstances. Whereas, Stacey Graham gives us a insight to zombie love at first sight with her cutesy story, "Eye of the Beholder." Regina Riley's (Pistons and Pistols,

Format: Paperback
when you think of zombies, the first thng that comes to mind is naturally romance. They are, after all, filled with brains and hearts, so why wouldn't they be filled with the emotional considerations that follow? In this 21 set of shorts, the idea of love and emotion mingle with the undying in a lot of different ways, sometimes dealing with the dead and sometimes dealing with the living but almost always dealing with a good gift at writing. combine that with the fact that many of the authors are somewhat unknown and accordingly have a lot of rope to play with and you have people working in ways that zombie stories can support.

Personally, I love my zombie stories and sometimes I admittedly have some trouble adapting to change. some of that comes form being burned in the past, however, and some of it comes with the fact that authors that have changed things have also changed up what made zombies zombies. This was especially true when it came to love and and other somewhat frilly emotions, taking zombies back to the days of black and white films (not that those filsm were bad, mind you). That's what I liked these stories so much - you have a lot of things happening in your stories, but you also have things happening on a stage filled with horror. That makes for an interesting mix and a range of talents to check out.

Since the 21 stories are all pretty good in their own way, I gave this a nice 4 star rating and thought about going higher. The only thing that kept me restrained was the fact that some of the stories did seem a little biit alike and that this series was touted as being very different when it came to the medium and the things that were presented. This is not meant as a slight in any way, howeve,r because the book is solid and 21 in a great hand at the Casino and a great set when it comes to value.
simply come open-minded and you'll find yourself with you'll leave a pleased - if tired from a lack of sleep - reader.
