    1. Mummiese original walking dead. Love them. Was so excited to see a new anthology on the ancient subject. Having binge read the entire massive volume in 24 hours, which is retrospect might not have been the way to go with this one, I have to say I didn't love it. The first story, usually the strongest, really wasn't, then it picked up nicely, about half way though dropped down to average at best (muddled tales of eternal life through social media and so on, sure sure, one must keep up with the ti [...]

    2. @pornokitsch Finished Book of the Dead last night. You do realise it's quite disgustingly good, don't you?— Mieneke van der Salm (@Pallekenl) November 20, 2013The above tweet might serve as the most adequate and succinct review of Jurassic London's latest anthology, The Book of the Dead. However, I realise that it's not really enough to sell those who read my reviews on the anthology, so I'll elaborate further below. But said tweet is the TL;DR summary of this review.My dislike terror of zombi [...]

    3. I apologise for taking so long to read this book because it’s the sort of anthology that I suspect was written specifically with someone as Egypt-obsessed as I am (so I totally rationed out the stories). When Jared Shurin puts together an anthology, it will be something special, no doubt about it. This one was something a little extra special, not only due to its star-studded cast of authors, but also the really nice touch of illustrations by the very talented Garen Ewing. And of course the su [...]

    4. How do I review an anthology? I dunno. But this was good! I read it to get into the spirit for my mummy costume this year :D

    5. There are some very interesting stories in this anthology, though there were only a few that I truly enjoyed. The Gail Carriger story was a lot of fun and the final story by Will Hill was fascinating.

    6. I didn't read all the stories, some were dreadfully boring to me. And most were undeveloped. But that is the risk with anthologies.

    7. Very well-written short stories. Bob recommended it to me. I dawdled starting it, but once going, it was hard to put down.

    8. Really cool! and a surprise, at least for me, for I had never read anything about mummies before, and I really liked it. Great short stories, some terror, some not, but all good.
