About the Author

The meat of the book: It appears several of these stories were online submissions, written by amateur writers. And that's cool, I want to encourage that sort of thing. However, several of the stories were very juvenile, predictable, and poorly written. It's not a good sign when I have a hard time finishing a 10 page story. Several (if not most) of these should not have made the cut. Maybe the editor had only a small pool of submissions to choose from?
What I did like: (1)"Stop Requested" by Rhiannon Frater. A simple, short, interesting angle, from the perspective of a seeing-eye dog. It was fun and immersive. (2)"Undead Overpass" by Gregory Michaels. A post-apocalyptic, alcoholic truck driver makes runs though a zombie infested world, reminiscent of Mad Max. Very cool. (3)"Same as You" by R. Thomas Riley. A starving family is holed up in an abandoned farmhouse. While returning from an unsuccessful food gathering run, the father has apparently attracted the attention of unknown assailants. This one ends with a very good twist. (4)"Children of Landford's Towers" by Brad Zipprich. With only 12 pages this story had the feel of an epic. Very well written, and I wanted more.
Bottom line: this book should have been 40 pages long.Read more ›
Fans of the genre will appreciate the many different takes on the zombie plague itself. Sometimes it's a viral outbreak, sometimes the cause is unknown. Some zombies shamble, others sprint. Some are monsters to be despised, others are tragic characters worthy of sympathy if not affection.
Even if you're not a particular fan of the zombie-themed horror, you'll appreciate the different styles and points of view. Each author has contributed a unique voice to the anthology, and each has broadened the genre in small but significant ways.
I look forward to subsequent volumes in this anthology series. If Zombology is any indication, the zompocalypse is a dark and colorful world, and we've only just scratched the surface.
You'd better get that scratch cleaned, by the way, before you develop any weird and overpowering cravings...
I wasn't sure of it at first, but what the heck. I figured why not give some new authors a chance. I have been reading the same kinds of stories by the same people, and I needed to read something different. It was a welcome change and, although I won't spoil the enjoyment of the stories for you, I will say that its worth the money.
I have to admit, I am a bit biased, since I really enjoy zombie stories anyway. But if you are in the mood for a bit of the "Z", you won't go wrong with this book.
This is a great read for any fan of zombie and/or horror fiction. I can't wait to read the second volume.
Thank goodness for the short-story format, or else I never would have been able to put the book down. When I reached the end of the last story, I was actually kind of sad. Need more braaaiiins...Guess I'll have to wait for the next selection from Library of the Living Dead Press.
very good and worth picking up
especially if you enjoy zombies
