    1. Note: This book is the UK edition of Zombies! Zombies! Zombies by the same editor. I’ve said it before but I’m not a big fan of zombies.Compared with ghosts, vampires, werewolves and, frankly, most horror icons, I’ve always thought of them as one of the weaker family members of the horror genre. They’re dead, but they’re living. they move! ey look at you! And that’s about it. They’re also slow and dumb and pretty limited in what they do.Even with the ‘improved model’ (they move [...]

    2. This is a well-assembled anthology. The main "problem" with these stories is that many rely on the creeping realization, or sudden reveal, that the subject is in fact a zombie. This is especially true of the older selections. As standalone stories, that approach might be effective. But such suspense is non-existant in this collection since we know these are zombie stories throughout.I cherry-picked my way through the book, selecting mostly the shorter of the stories. There were some memorable st [...]

    3. The most complete collection of zombie stories? Maybe. The best? Not so sure about that.I would only recommend this anthology to those who are interested in the horror magazines of the first few decades of the 20th century. I enjoyed a few of these older stories, but after a while the plots of many were similar enough that they started running together for me. A notable and welcome inclusion is Lovecraft’s Herbert West- Reanimator, which none of my previous anthologies had.Also, some very weir [...]

    4. I was quite surprised, I'll admit, to find there weren't any stories in this anthology which I didn't like. It was very interesting to see the different styles of writing depending on the time period in which the story was written. Many of them came from the age of pulp fiction and yes some of those definitely showed their roots by being melodramatic but that didn't detract from the basic story, if that makes sense. It was fascinating to see the varied takes on the 'undead' from true zombies of [...]

    5. "Horrifying ghouls, decaying corpses, body snatchers, grave robbers and flesh-eating monsters. In this gruesome anthology of the living dead, all these and more will try to catch your eye and devour your brain. From the macabre pens of the world's most spine-tingling horror and fantasy writers, the grisliest, goriest, ghastliest stories from the last two centuries have been plucked from the shadows by legendary editor Otto Penzler, to form the most monstrous volume in zombie history. Featuring a [...]

    6. While the cover makes this anthology look like pure pulp, it's not. There are so many really great stories here - there are a couple of standouts that alone make this one worth checking out. "Eat Me" by the great Robert McCammon is a stunner - who would have thought anyone could write a romantic, touching and yet gruesome tale of zombie love. It's an unforgettable gem of a story. The other is "Deadman's Road" by Joe R. Lansdale, which pulls you into to the creepiest western yarn you've ever read [...]

    7. This compendium is a wonderful read however I wouldn't recommend it for all fans of the zombie genre. Modern day fans may not enjoy the older style zombie horror tales. That being said, fans of traditional horror should find this book to be a treat.Highly recommended.

    8. This book is a great example of how times change but horror stays (relatively) the same. Overall a good example of the evolution of zombie in stories and a good collection for the die hard fans.

    9. I saw this at the used book store at the local library for a quarter.I had to get it. Awesome and excellent read.
