The Living Dead

With Halowe’en being this week, I figured the appropriate review to post right now is the colossal zombie anthology, The Living Dead, edited by John Joseph Adams and published by the hepcats at Nightshade Books. I think calling this anthology anything less than definitive would be selling it short by a great distance. The mix of authors and the themes upon which the stories touch are terrific. This combined with Wastelands is really showing what a great selective editorial hand John Joseph Adams has.

Keeping with the spooky theme, Mark / Hobbit posted his review of Jasper Kent’s dark historical novel Twelve yesterday. This book sounds really cool and can do things for members of the undead during the Napoleonic era that Novik did for Dragons in that era. Here’s hoping a US publisher will pick up the book.
