Customer Reviews

I love to read anthologies . . . nice to get through a story in a sitting when time is tight.
Bruce G. Rabe
I can't say much about the storyline without ruining it, so I'll just say that the storyline here was good and it didn't end the way I thought it would as I read it.
Joshua Palmatier
Dead Poets by John A. Pitts is the most literary of the anthology and is written in an interesting point of view with a liberal dose of poetry.

Zombie Raccoons & Killer Bunnies edited by Kerrie Hughes and Martin H. Greenberg

This is a crazy book and the purposefully amateurish cover drew the ire of a many when it came out. Those who hated the cover may have missed the point all together of this mostly comedic exploration on two hilarious ideas: zombie raccoons and killer bunnies. If you're looking for some spooky fun during Halloween you'll find a lot of entertainment here, from hilarious to scary. There's fifteen stories and the authors cover a lot of different ground.

Death Mask by Jody Lynn Nye has written a tale about some nefarious raccoons and a tough old lady with a shotgun that you won't soon forget. BunRabs by Donald J. Bingle is the funniest story in the book and I laughed out loud several times. For Lizzie by Anton Strout explores a couple of secondary characters from his well received Simon Canderous novels (Dead to Me, Dead Matter, Deader Still, & Dead Waters). Faith in Our Fathers by Alexander B. Potter is one of the best stories in the book and it really tugs at your heart. It has a resonance that any of us who have ever lost a pet can identify with, and is written with the grace of a master.

Bone Whispers by Tim Waggoner is a Stephen King-esque horror story that comes to life and will totally creep you out. Bone Whispers is one of those bizarre and well-written stories that makes you cringe. Watching by Carrie Vaughn is a tale about pigeons and mind control that will have you watching those damn flying rats out of the corner of your eye for some time.

The Things That Crawl by Richard Lee Byers is in my top three of the anthology.

I've finished Zombie Raccoons and Killer Bunnies, edited by Martin H. Greenberg & Kerrie Hughes and overall it was an OK anthology. A few stories stood out, and those I've denoted with bold titles. A few of the stories were disappointing, either with an ending that wasn't as satisfactory as I would have liked, or with an ending that just didn't make sense to me at all. There were some good chilling stories in here, along with some fun humorous takes on the theme, so a wide variety overall. If you like "creature of the night" stories, then you'll find a couple of good reads in here, but in the end I was a little disappointed overall.

Table of Contents:

Death Mask by Jody Lynn Nye: This was a zombie raccoon story, where the raccoons come up against a farmer who doesn't agree with the idea that you need to commune with nature. It was an OK story, but I had a hard time getting used to the voice of the farmer character, which threw me off.

BunRabs by Donald J. Bingle: And this was a killer bunny story . . . told from the POV of a chicken. *grin* The chicken's POV of the world in general is hilarious, especially their take on modern day conveniences (and how they use them) and the mythology they've developed about rabbits and how they incorporate some of our own traditions into their worldview. A fun story.

for lizzie by Anton Strout: A cute little story set in Anton's "Simon Canderous" universe, although it doesn't feature Simon as a character. The main character is an archivist, dealing with a certain lack of social skills when dealing with the opposite sex . . . along with a rather ferocious little book wyrm.

Faith in Our Fathers by Alexander B.

I love to read anthologies . . . nice to get through a story in a sitting when time is tight. But this collection kept me turning the pages until I finished it. Good mix of veteran and relatively new authors, and a wonderful blend of funny and scary stories. There are a great many to recommend: Anton Strout's, Jody Lynn Nye's, etc. I was particularly fond of Donald J. Bingle's BunRab tale, which brought quite a wide smile to my face. Pick this one up.

I love reading a ridiculous over the top animal turned into psychopathic killer verse human story, or even watching one from time to time as a movie. So after picking this various author short story collection up I had pretty high hopes for it. Overall though I must say it's a bit disappointing. There's a few enjoyable enough tales from the collection of fifteen, but most are pretty average and some so boring you've just got to make yourself push through them. There's even two stories that have the exact same twist ending, not either of the stories or their author's fault, but definitely the editor should have picked that up, and either not included one of them and published it in a different collection, or told whoever the second author was to submit their story that they need to change it, because it's too similar to a story already in here.

The stories do range in topics from animals coming back to life and extracting a bit of vengeance, to fantasy genre stuff like a book worm living as a pet in an archive room then transforming into something else. Even though they are not probably the ones you picked this collection up for, I found the human led plots better than the cheesy animal attack or story told through animal's eyes style reads such as the homeless guy who started off as a backpacker in Europe and now talks to the pigeons tale, called Watching by Carrie Vaughan. Likewise the next story The Things That Crawl by Richard Byers where a police officer experiencing his first hurricane notices reptiles acting strangely and wonders if somehow they are being used a murder weapon by a serial killer. But overall I was pretty disappointed with this collection.
