If you're looking for flesh-rending gore, I strongly suggest you look elsewhere. Though the zombies in Live and Let Undead are by no means tame, they are not the usual gluttonous cadavers that have been storming the genre as of late. What you will find in abundance, however, are stories of lives lost, lives changed, and lives saved by the most unusual of suspects - the undead.
Though I am unfamiliar with some of the authors, I will gladly read any past or future work they produce. Likewise, I will also be up for anything edited by Hollie Snider. I assure you - they're all top notch. I can't pick a favorite story, since each story is special and deserves reading, and I don't want to summarize each story because it will ruin the surprise of the book for you. So, here is a little taste of all that's waiting for you...

I have vowed never to read another Suzanne Robb story while in the company of others. Like her other works, I find myself talking and laughing aloud while reading. I couldn't help but gasp at some of the situations she puts her characters in. It's also worth noting that Robb has a special knack for creating whole characters out of a few words or actions. She doesn't need to cripple her story with long character descriptions, she gets the job done fast while maintaining a good handle on the story. Her crisp and devious sense of humor is always a welcome addition to her stories, and "Dentists, Autopsies, and Nutritionists, Oh My!" is no exception!

Matt Adams had me nearly crying with "Sparky Save the World", in which a human shares a special bond with his zombie. Without being preachy, it quietly emphasizes the need to look deeper into situations and forget our prejudices. Sometimes we see only what we want to see, not what is truly there.

Not only are all of these stories post-apocalyptic, but many of them are full of futuristic technology and/or take place years after a zombie outbreak. I thought several of them were more sci-fi than horror, but they are all pretty good, with some being more entertaining than others.

DANCING WITH THE DEAD by Barry Rosenberg features undead created by too much fast food & video games. The zombies are used for domestic service, and this POV centers on a residents' home. It struck as being one of the more sci-fi stories.

MEMORIAL DAY by Mike Barretta tells the story of a young man who recognizes his undead dad working on a county project. With a sci-fi tone, Barretta reveals the son's plan to give his dad freedom. The social commentary is scary as hell.

LABOR RELATIONS by Steve Ruthenbeck is about a janitor discovering a morbid secret in a zombie facility, where the undead are used to produce energy, and he has to fight his way out of work. This was another story with sci-fi mixed in, but it was one of my favorites in the anthology.

INDUSTRIAL DISEASE by Brian Craig Johnson was hard to follow; I actually read it twice, thinking I must have missed a part. Some unusual zombie traits are revealed after a survivor discovers a newborn.

DEAD HEAD by Daniel R. Robichaud was a disturbing story about two guys getting high off the ashes of the undead, until they smoke the wrong person.

LUTHER'S LOVE SHACK by Jeff Chitty was a tale of zombie perversion that would put the movie Zombie Strippers to shame. This one definitely stood out from the others in the collection. Never a dull moment.

CULTIVATION OF THE DEAD by Keith Gouveia describes the way zombie poop is used as fertilizer.

If zombies could be contained, controlled, or used, how would humanity do it? This question spurred the authors in this book into creating some diverse entertaining stories that run the gamut of human emotions and moral questions. Thought-provoking, well-written and hard to put down, Hollie Snider and her crew delivered a masterpiece with this effort. Keep your eye on all the writers in this book!

Live and Let Undead is a recent anthology featuring eighteen different stories packed into 316 pages. If you're not familiar with the concept of an "anthology" is, it simply means a collection. This was especially interesting to me as while I have read many stories that were in an anthology I have never read one from different authors.

There is a lot of anthologies out there and I definitely think this one is one to have a look at and added a large handful of writers for me to look into.
