RESURRECTION!

The hungry dead have risen. They shamble down the street. They hide in back yards, car lots, shopping malls. They devour neighbors, dogs and police officers. And they are here to stay. The real question is, what are you going to do about it? How will you survive?

HOW WILL THE WORLD CHANGE WHEN THE DEAD BEGIN TO RISE?

Stoker-award-winning author Christopher Golden has assembled an original anthology of never-before-published zombie stories from an eclectic array of today's hottest writers. Inside there are stories about military might in the wake of an outbreak, survival in a wasted wasteland, the ardor of falling in love with a zombie, and a family outing at the circus. Here is a collection of new views on death and resurrection.

With stories from Joe Hill, John Connolly, Max Brooks, Kelley Armstrong, Tad Williams, David Wellington, David Liss, Aimee Bender, Jonathan Maberry, and many others, this is a wildly diverse and entertaining collection...the Last Word on the New Dead.

A great book to read but like the comments before I didn't understand why some of the stories where there.

Joe Hill reads more and more like his dad (Stephen King);a tough act to follow, for sure. I like the way he hasn't ridden anyone's coattails. Good on him. Loved David Wellington's story, was disappointed by Tad Williams'. This is one to borrow from your library, not to buy.

Loved this book. Very well written but one of the stories actually shouldnt have been there seeing as the book said that the stories werent going to become books. However on the whole it was a great book.

The stories are for the most part really thoughtful and unique. Those qualities waned however nearer the end and one story in particular, I couldn't even tell why it was in the book. Good thing they are short! I recommend it overall.
