I recently gifted Pet Semetary to one of my AP students and we were talking about the plot and characters and I told him this story. He asked if I had googled this recently and I actually hadn't. I kind of forgot about my quest so long ago. I googled the story and came up with this! I was so excited to see The Return of Timmy Baterman published in book format! It was even more exciting to see that Neil Gaiman and Ray Bradbury had stories in this as well.
This was a fun book and the seller I purchased it from had a wonderful price listed!!
The anthology contains many different perspectives on zombies and the relationship between them and man. Some stories have you feeling bad for the zombies, others are typical "chain-sawin', shotgun shootin' romps". Some delve deep into the psyche of both zombie and victim.
This is a must have for any zombie enthusiast. But again, the topics covered are adult in nature and may not be appropriate for all.
This book is organized into two parts. Part one are stories of Zombies of the old school. Some of the stories in this section include Lazarus by Leonid Andreyeu, The return of Timmy Baterman by Stephen King, The Emmisary by Ray Bradbury, A case of the Stubborns by Robert Bloch, and It by Theodore Sturgeon. Part two are stories of the Post Emancipation. Some of the stories in this section include The Dead gather on the bridge to Seattle, The Good Parts by Les Daniels, Eat Me by Robert R. McCammon, Great Wall: A story from the Zombie War by Max Books, and many other interesting Zombie tales.
In conclusion, if you are a crazy Zombie genre fan, you are sure to enjoy many of the stories in this excellent volume.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Predator Hunter: A warrior's memoir)
