Zombies, edited by Otto Penzler

Zombies: A Compendium of the Living Dead, edited by Otto Penzler, is a massive anthology weighing in at over 800 pages (published by Corvus at £19.99).  One sometimes asks, Haven’t we yet done zombies to death? The answer is, Quite possibly yes. However, this large tome shows that there has been life in the undead for a long time, and have been dealt with by many a fine writer. This is a reprint anthology, with tales selected across the years, from the mid-19th century to the 2000s – so you are able to experience a range of interpretations herein.

There are nearly 60 stories in this book, including tales by Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft, Lisa Tuttle, Ramsey Campbell, Stephen King, Garry Kilworth, Theodore Sturgeon and Yvonne Navarro. This anthology promises to be a feast for your brains.
