This is a very interesting departure from the usual human zombie read. I was disappointed to see that the authors are not listed anywhere in the book description, so to give credit where credit is due:

- "Monkey House" - Tim Curran
- "The Yule Cat" - Ted Wenskus
- "Lucy" - Eric Dimbleby
- "Loss of Vector" - William Wood
- "One Man and His Dog" - Wayne Goodchild
- "Why The Wild Things Are" - Carl Barker
- "Two Days Before the End Of The World" - Ryan C. Thomas
- "Gift Horse" - J. Gilliam Martin
- "The Roo" - Anthony Wedd
- "Dead Dog Tired" - Anthony Giangregorio
- "The Rising" - Hayden Williams
- "SWAT" - Brian Pinkerton

A great book overall, although some stories were definitely superior to others. My personal favorites were "The Yule Cat" and "Why the Wild Things Are". I would definitely recommend to any fan of horror in general and zombie horror in particular!

Zombie Zoology is a great anthology that will appeal to animal-lovers and animal-haters alike. One of the best things about this anthology is that it includes a lot of species that have rarely, or never, been zombified in print: baboons, cats, mooses (meese?), chimpanzees, cockroaches, birds, sheep, horses, kangaroos, pit bulls, moa, and mosquitoes. The selection of authors is just as diverse, from illustrious luminaries like Tim Curran, Anthony Giangregorio and Brian Pinkerton to rising stars like J. Gilliam Martin, Wayne Goodchild, Hayden Williams, and William Wood. It's kind of like Resident Evil. The levels of violence and disturbing imagery are nice and high, just the way you like them. It's gross and frightening. It's also well-written and fascinating. Purchase this gruesome menagerie. I loved it, and so will you.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Shroud Magazine's Book Reviews VINE VOICE on February 22, 2011
Format: Paperback
Zombie Zoology, released last May from Severed Press, features twelve stories about dead animals coming back from the grave. The stories take place in varied locals like roach-infested buildings, farms and outer space, and the animals are brought back to life by magic, extraterrestrial pathogens, experiments gone wrong and unexplainable circumstances.

The anthology stands apart from others in the zombie subgenre not on the strength of any particular stories in the book (they're all good!) but because of the uniqueness of the material covered. There are whole publishing imprints dedicated to nothing but zombie fiction, but hardly any of it deals with zombie animals. Zombie Zoology, by and large, skirts the topic of undead people in the majority of its stories, focusing primarily on animal outbreaks both small- and large-scale.

The only thing that might irk some zombie purists is the tendency of these zombie beasts to break one of the tried and true rules: in several of these stories, damage to the brains did nothing to stop them. In one particular story, a zombie goat sustained multiple skull fractures and still came back for more. But then, zombie animals are largely uncharted territory, so it isn't a major issue. Zombie Zoology should definitely earn Severed Press some new fans and offer a breath of fresh air to any zombie fan.

This anthology is a refreshing change for zombie fans! First of all, what great coverart, thanks to David Lange (Yes we do buy books based on their covers). Severed Press has put together a nice assortment of strange animal tales. Tim Curran's "Monkey House" (which the bookcover is based on) takes surviving a zombie baboon attack to the extreme. "One Man and His Dog" by Wayne Goodchild is about a pest exterminator and his unusual "pet" eradicator. "Two Days Before the End" by Ryan C. Thomas is a neat story about a sheep that refuses to die. Another favorite was "Swat" by Brian Pinkerton about a SWAT team up against a zombie infestation of blood-thirsty mosquitoes. And there are many more.

Good reading for those who enjoy a short taste of zombies at its best. Who would ever think about the animals when it came to a zombie outbreak? Fun, thrilling, and edge of your seat horror. Must read for those Z fans.....

I've read several zombie anthologies starting with Spector and Skipp's splatterfest Book of the Dead way back in '91. Ever since reading that IMO a perfect collection of Romeroesque undead fiction it's been very tough chasing down stories that would give me the same intensity of that first high. I'm glad to say that Zombie Zoology while far from perfect still manages to deliver short raw bursts of great zombie writing that manage to take me pretty close to reaching that first high. From undead simians, both from the zoo and outer space, to clouds of undead mosquitos, to a recently returned moose, ZZ has a nice collection sure to please the zombie fan eager to try something different.
