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.

“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


The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

By FredTownWard VINE VOICE on October 2, 2010
Format: Paperback
It will probably come as no surprise to learn that this is the ONLY zombie romance anthology ever. (Since this review was written, Lori Perkins has seen fit to prove me wrong; the lunacy continues in Still Hungry For Your Love.)

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.


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,...

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,

(This review originally appeared on my blog.)

The protagonists in Hungry for Your Love vary from humans surviving the zombie apocalypse to actual rotting, brain-eating zombies, and everything in between. There are, of course, a few stories that aren't my cup of tea-but that's to be expected in every anthology and I'm not going to elaborate on the stories I didn't love. The fact is, however, that choosing a favorite story is nigh unto impossible because they are all just so good, and even the stories that weren't my favorites were well-written.

The second story in the anthology, "Revenants Anonymous," by Francesca Lia Block, blew my socks off. It's the personal account of a zombie woman who finds love at an addicts meeting for the life-challenged. The romantic interest is a dark-haired singer/songwriter with a guitar-and what girl doesn't want to date that guy, even if he's undead? The love between the two zombies ends up being sweet and poignant and even a little inspiring, and Block does a great job of conjuring the "life feels so much more alive" emotion that happens at the start of a new relationship after a long dry spell. The sex scene is described with tenderness and just enough detail to be sexy without being pornographic.

"My Partner The Zombie," by R.G. Hart, is a noir-style tale about a pair of private detectives, one of whom happens to be a zombie. I enjoyed solving the mystery along with the detectives, laughed at the application of "Zombie Away" (a chemical solvent that does exactly what it sounds like it should do), and ultimately smiled at the happy ending. Happy endings are rare in the zombie fiction genre, but it seems to me that even in a zombie romance anthology the stories should have happy endings-or, at least, mostly happy.
