Les Daniels clearly needs to get laid, though I have to give him credit - the zombie birthing process made me laugh out loud and slightly nauseated all at the same time.
Winter What if "Less Than Zero" had been a zombie movie? Yeah, I still wouldn't have liked it much then, either. Boyett My favorite story of the bunch, "Like Pavlov's Dogs" is set primarily in a biosphere whose inhabitants survive the zombie apocalypse unscathed.
Much like the biker gang in the original "Dawn of the Dead," this story teaches us that even in a world of ravenous, shambling corpses we have far more to fear from the living than the dead.
I can't recall this story, either. Lansdale Lots and lots of necrophilia and post-zombie-apocalypse depravity on the part of the surviving human beings.
If you've ever wondered how you might go about staffing a brothel with zombie whores I know I have! However, if you get hold of a freshly dead hottie again, I'm looking at you, Julie Roberts and bolt the right electronic components to her noggin, you don't have to resort to dismemberment to enjoy her company, though you will have to work harder at getting into her pants.
If you think my summary was painful to read, you should try the actual story. Lansdale, shame on you! I hear Brian Hodge is working on a sequel for sweeps week.
Schow Another "the living are more dangerous than the living dead" parable. Pound for pound, this is the grossest story in the book.
At the same time, it probably has given hope to dozens of lonely, obese, cannibalistic teens who are just waiting for the zombie apocalypse so they can have someone to relate to McCammon Not McCammon's finest work "Night Boat," which he oddly refuses to allow to be republished was an awesome zombie story.
The answer, of course, is "yes" and - unsurprisingly - involves genital mutilation. Why do I give this book four stars?
Well, for starters, it was a zombie anthology long before zombie anthologies were cool. Secondly, it attempted to do for Romero's work what fanzines did for "Star Trek" during the s and into the s before the franchise was expanded and eventually bastardized beyond recognition.
And just like some of the early published "Star Trek" stories were complete shit cough Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath Thirdly, I really don't think that the current zombie-mania would have happened if it weren't for respected horror writers contributing to "Book of the Dead.
And lastly, Goodreads doesn't allow you to give three-and-a-half-stars. Nov 01, John Reppion rated it liked it. Published in , the anthology boasts a foreword from George A.
With authors such as Steven King, Joe R, Lansdale, Ramsey Campbell and Richard Laymon contributing tales, this is an A-list affair, especially given that many of the featured writers were at the peak of their popularity at the time the book was first published.
Thatcher and Cowboy Ronnie sending out cards from their private underground bunkers. Anthologies by their very nature are a mixed bag and Book of the Dead is no exception.
There are some really enjoyable tales in the book: Campbell goes for discomfort and creeping menace, perhaps deliberately avoiding the no holds barred splatter which drips off the surrounding pages and I think it really pays off.
Then there are the bad parts and these are more general, more to do with the book as a whole and the way things sort of add up from story to story.
When I was first getting into horror in the early nineties James Herbert was the author whose work I was truly hungry for and raced through as fast as I could.
Returning to his work years later I was actually quite shocked and disappointed by some of the material in there, especially when it came to sex.
All of that said, I really enjoyed the book generally. A real stand out story for me was Choices by Glen Vasey, whose work I have never encountered before.
Choices manages to capture the right atmosphere and achieve a real sense of balance; lots of humanity, lots of pathos but still plenty of horror and action.
Overall, Book of the Dead is a very enjoyable and important anthology, though you may have to take certain stories with a pinch of salt.
This book belonged to my uncle not sure if he still has it and I remember reading this when I was about That short story has remained fixed in my memory all these years later.
I do recall enjoying others, though none have remained in my memory.

But overall a very good collection. Particularly that short story I already mentioned. I had to do some creative Googling today just to find the book that contained one of the best horror short stories I have ever read in my life.
I definitely recommend this book. Come on, just read the premise behind this collection! View all 4 comments.
Winter the story by Stephen King was reprinted with comic-style illustration in Secretary of the dead and Joe Lansdale's story was adapted into a comic book ooh, and a chapbook!
Oct 09, Mark marked it as to-read. McCammon's, Lansdale's, and Schow's stories are must-read. Laymon's Mess Hall was sadly disappointing.
Same with Winter's tale. The rest need to be reread before commenting. Dec 01, David Agranoff rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mess Hall still sticks with me.
Jan 02, Kaniku rated it really liked it. Not your typical collection of zombie stories. Apr 30, Daniel Dunkle rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was an excellent collection of short stories about zombies from the s, back before The Walking Dead was on TV and you had to wait for them to play Dawn of the Dead on late night cable to get your fix.
I picked this up at the local drug store back in Hampden, Maine when I was probably too young to be reading this stuff.
I particularly liked Joe R. Lansdale is now known for Hap and This was an excellent collection of short stories about zombies from the s, back before The Walking Dead was on TV and you had to wait for them to play Dawn of the Dead on late night cable to get your fix.
Lansdale is now known for Hap and Leonard mysteries, but he is really the master of the horror short story. Don't read it if you don't like really graphic violence, and I don't mean that in any cute, wink-wink way.
This book probably goes over the line, but I find it a guilty pleasure. Mar 01, Brad Carter rated it it was amazing.
Given the recent popularity of zombies, it's hard to believe this anthology hasn't been brought back into print. It seems to me that many of the stories have been reprinted elsewhere, so perhaps there are now legal issues surrounding that?
Inner workings of the publishing industry aside, this is one hell of a book. Heavy hitters like Stephen King, Ramsey Campbell, Robert McCammon back when he still got his hands dirty writing horror , and Joe Lansdale serve up some really good reanimated corpse Given the recent popularity of zombies, it's hard to believe this anthology hasn't been brought back into print.

Douglas Winter's "Less Than Zombie" is a hilarious Brett Easton Ellis parody that brings zombies and bored rich kids together in a very splatter-ific story.
And that's the thing. The emphasis here is on splatter, which is not wholly surprising given that splatterpunk was still being hailed as the next big thing back when this book was published.
I'd argue that not all zombie lit need be splatter oriented. Even Romero's Day of the Dead--when stripped of a few gory set pieces--had a heavy philosophical bent.
Most of these stories just go for the throat, not necessarily a bad thing, just a little monotonous. Now that there are a million zombie anthologies out there, you could do worse than this one.
A good friend of mine recommended this book to me, said it was age old, and the copy I bought looks as though it's been around since the dawn of time.
It was a good read though, well worth the couple of pounds I spent to have it flown over from America. It's an excellent collection of zombie literature with works from names such as Stephen King and Robert R.
One or two stories missed the mark with me, but only slightly, while others took a bit of convincing, such as the piece "Like Pavlo A good friend of mine recommended this book to me, said it was age old, and the copy I bought looks as though it's been around since the dawn of time.

I felt it was a bit slow at the start and almost gave up, but it got me just at the right moment and came to a great zombieriffic conclusion.
All in all, nice read from people who know what they're doing. And what a selection. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good zombie fest.
AND I have another funny Mom story about this book. She's a tremendous Robert R. McCammon fan and had been looking forward to the story for a while.
It's called "Eat Me" and is Disturbing and kind of funny, in a way. Well, we were in a mall shortly after it was released. She found it and was overjoyed.
