    A collection of zombie stories that truly does deliverthan what you d expect Zombie fans MUST check this book out, but what sets it apart is that there s enough here for other people as well This Year s Class Picture sets things up nicely, catching the reader off guard with it s ending and setting the stage for several different looks at the life

    Some major duds in this collection but the few gems pushed this up to a 4 star read.

    This is not a collection of Zombie short stories No, this is a brilliant collection of short stories that happen to be about Zombies Trust me there s a difference.You ll find very few cliches here, very few pieces of bad writing, very few filler stories You will find some of the best speculative fiction writers currently out there today contributing fasc

  10. Colleen Colleen says: a lot of short story collections, tons of junk and a few gems sprinkled in to keep you interested There were three or four that redeemed this and almost makes me want to give three or four stars, but really like most of the zombie genre too much bad writing Schoolteacher story was amazing though, so won t sell this back just because of that one.
