Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Recently prolific anthologist Adams (Seeds of Change) delivers a superb reprint anthology that runs the gamut of zombie stories. There's plenty of gore, highlighted by Stephen King's Home Delivery and David Schow's classic Blossom. Less traditional but equally satisfying are Lisa Morton's Sparks Fly Upward, which analyzes abortion politics in a zombified world, and Douglas Winter's literary pastiche Less than Zombie. Also outstanding, Kelly Link's Some Zombie Contingency Plans and Hannah Wolf Bowen's Everything Is Better with Zombies take similar themes in wildly different directions. Neil Gaiman's impeccably crafted Bitter Grounds offers a change of pace with traditional Caribbean zombies. The sole original contribution, John Langan's How the Day Runs Down, is a darkly amusing twist on Thornton Wilder's Our Town. There's some great storytelling for zombie fans as well as newcomers.

Review

"The best collection of zombie fiction stories ever." --Paul Goat Allen, Barnes & Noble.com

"Believe the hype. The Living Dead is absolutely the best zombie anthology I've ever read (and I've read many)... If you have even a vague interest in zombie fiction, you MUST buy this book." --HorrorScope

"The Living Dead contains stories of heartbreak, drama, and man's eternal struggle against himself. The focus doesn't fall squarely on violence and horror, which earns it a place among the best of zombie fiction. The Living Dead is not a book to be ignored; it demands a read through--maybe a couple."--Robert Kirkman, writer of The Walking Dead and Marvel Zombies

I just finished letting my rotted fingers turn the pages of the best zombie anthology ever. If I was told to think of one word to sum up all the greatness that is this anthology, that one word would be PERFECTION, and yet, that might not give it justice. THE LIVING DEAD, Edited by John Joseph Adams, is bursting at it binding with 34 wonderful zombie stories from the best horror authors in the world." --The Walking Dead Fan Club blog

"This superb anthology, which assembles some of the best zombie short fiction from the past 30 years, is noteworthy for going beyond the typical undead apocalypse scenario so common in horror today. Instead, editor Adams has chosen works covering the full gamut of zombie fiction. [...] Named one of Publishers Weekly's 2008 Best Books of the Year, this collection contains a story for every zombie fan." --Library Journal
