Format: Paperback
Tim Curran's Zombie Pulp is comprised of nine short stories and two novellas, all of which deal with the undead. Two of the short stories, "Shelter" and "The Mattawan Meat Wagon," appear to be set in the same world, one inhabited by 'Wormboys,' a form of zombie capable of organization and logical thought. The others cover a prison's bizarre method of body disposal, a woman's not-so-joyful reunion with her dearly-departed daughter, a similar reunion between a man and his mother, the grisly result of a botched underworld murder, a vacationing couple's run-in with an even hungrier-than-usual school of piranha, a law-enforcement raid on the strangest cult ever and a world overrun by zombie primates.

The two novellas, "They Walk by Night" and "Morbid Anatomy," stand head and shoulders above the rest of the collection. The former is a pulp-noir detective story pitting your typical tough-as-nails private dick against a group of criminals accused of digging up and resurrecting the dead to further their nefarious schemes. The latter is connected somehow to a Lovecraft story called Herbert West: Reanimator that I'm sorry to say I've never read, and mixes horrific zombies, grisly scientific experiments and the real-life horrors of World War I.

Zombie Pulp is an excellent showcase of Curran's range; he writes housewives, every day people, police and soldiers (both modern and historical), in an equally convincing manner. "They Walk by Night" in particular demonstrates his talent for creating the mood and gets Curran high marks for use of vernacular and the two 'Wormboy' tales, for lack of a better descriptor, hint at a world and backstory that could easily be expanded into a longer body of work, perhaps even a series.

All the stories are a good departure from the usual fortified and/or on the run band of survivors. Very original. I think this book sets the record for the most occurrences of the word "putrescent" in a published work.

...but that shouldn't surprise anyone who is a fan of Curran's beautifully demented works. Curran pretty much goes par the course in the collection of 9 tales of zombie carnage. While "Corpse Cadavre" was really just a rehash of the prison scene(s) in "Resurrection", and both "Piraya" and "Monkey House" have been published in previous anthologies ("Dead Bait" and "Zombie Zoology" respectively), the majority of the short stories in "Zombie Pulp" are dark, gory, demented, and actually quite readable, if not downright enjoyable.
There's a lot to like about "Zombie Pulp" aside from just the zombie element. Curran's writing is fantastic. With an ability I have yet to see in any other other, he crafts these gross, stomach churning scenes with such a descriptive pen and adjectives that seem to be made for just this kind of writing that it is next to impossible to NOT imagine with perfect clarity the scenes and actions going on in the pages. Aside from that his work, while not always entirely original, defiantly has a more original twist than others (just read "Shelter" or "The Mattawa Meat-Wagon"). Then there is the improved editing and overall lack of errors found in this publication. Before, Severed Press was just awful with typos, juxtaposition and overall lack of care in proofreading their authors manuscripts. Looks like they have really picked up their game here. And finally, to top that all off, just look at the cover. If that isn't one of the best covers of ANY book I have ever seen, then I must be blind.
The problem with "Zombie Pulp" though comes at the length of many of the stories.

Because when you get this book in the mail you won't be getting any more restful nights for a while. Curran runs the gamut with this collection, from slaughter-fests to cerebral. I never read a book of shorts all the way through but I read this cover to cover. Mortuary was run-and-gun, kill-or-be-killed fun and Monkey House was excellent. I really enjoyed that one. But by far the best story was the re-animator take-off Morbid Anatomy. A lot of thought must have gone into that story as Tim takes his time revealing the true horror, giving it to the reader a small piece at a time. There's a lot of depth of character and I think his Herbert West is even more diabolical than the original. I would definitely buy that as a full-length book (it might not be a bad stand-alone on Kindle). Seriously, it is head and shoulders the best story in the book.

This is an amzing collection. discuss it in my blog in much more detail at [...] but in short, it's a gory tribute to the old EC Comics style of story telling and Curran as always is up to form with his excellent, visceral prose.
