Leichen, Zombies, Sensationen – eine wüste Mischung von Geschichten aller Stil- und Geschmacksrichtungen (von Drama bis Comedy ist alles am Start), nicht immer auf den Punkt gelungen, aber insgesamt sehr unterhaltsam. Viel Zombies für kleines Geld, als Genrefan kann man mit diesem eBook eigentlich nichts falsch machen. ( )

I just finished the first offering, "This Year's Class Picture" by Dan Simmons (of Hyperion fame). This might be my favorite horror short story of all-time. So far, so awesome. John Joseph Adams knew what he was doing and started this anthology off with a huge survivalist story. 5 STARS.
"Some Zombie Contingency Plans" by Kelly Link--1 Star. Couldn't wait to get it over with. Reread it a week later and, yep, just a reductionist tale with no character development. Instead, poppy youth driven dialogue!
"Death and Suffrage" by Dale Bailey--4 Stars. Presidential election won by a zombie girl. Nuff said.
"Ghost Dance" by Sherman Alexie--3 Stars.
"Blossom" by David Schow--5 Stars. NASTY. Could never forget.
"The Third Dead Body" by Nina Kiriki Hoffman--3 Stars.
"The Dead" by Michael Swanwick--4 Stars. Corporatism run amok.
"The Dead Kid" by Darrell Schweitzer--3 Stars.
"Malthusian's Zombie" by Jeffrey Ford--4 Stars.
"Beautiful Stuff" by Susan Palwick--3 Stars (post 9/11 critique of US gov't)
"Sex, Death, and Starshine" by Clive Barker--1 Star. (I KNOW!!! SO DISAPPOINTING.)
"Stockholm Syndrome" by David Tallerman--4 Stars (felt a bit like SK's 'Roadwork'. 1ST PERSON NARRATION WARNING)
"Bobby Conroy Comes Back From the Dead" by Joe Hill--5 Stars. Takes place on the set of a George Romero flick...a love story, somehow enjoyed!
"Those Who Seek Forgiveness" by Laurell K. Hamilton--1 Star.
"In Beauty, Like the Night" by Norman Partridge--4 Stars.
"Prairie" by Brian Evenson--5 Stars. Refreshingly weird, DARK, downright bereft of hope...and difficult to consider.
"Everything is Better with Zombies" by Hannah Wolf Bowen--2 Stars.
"Home Delivery" by Stephen King--4 Stars. Left me wanting more.
"Less Than Zombie" by Douglas E. Winter--2 Stars.
"Sparks Fly Upward" by Lisa Morton--2 Stars.
"Meathouse Man" by George R.R. Martin--5 STARS. SETTING, SETTING, SETTING. What the author achieves in describing this landscape cannot be understated. Hard to read due to the completely likeable, forlorn narrator. In the notes it says Mr. Martin has trouble rereading this story...I can see why.
"Deadman's Road" by Joe Lansdale--5 Stars. Zombie Western with a pinch of the demonic.
"The Skull-Faced Boy" by David Barr Kirtley--2 Stars.
"The Age of Sorrow" by Nancy Kilpatrick--4 Stars.
"Bitter Grounds" by Neil Gaiman--3 Stars. I always WANT to like Neil Gaiman's works. ( )

Really enjoyable anthology that delivered on zombies of all zombie-walks. As with all anthologies, there were a few misses but overall this was a great anthology and I came out of this with a few favourites:

"This Year's Class Picture" - the first story of the anthology is a great set-up. A teacher continues her life's work even after the world goes to Hell.

"The Dead Kid" - A heart-breaking little story about a child zombie that stuck with me for a week.

"Prairie" - Short, believable, and gruesome.

"Home Delivery" - Stephen King's story combines my penchant for his Little Tall Island as a setting and also a female protagonist.

"Deadman's Road" - This old west story was just plain chilling. Compact cast of characters, backstory that evokes disgust for the zombie even before we meet him. I'm sorry that the author's "Dead In The West" isn't more widely available.

"Followed" - Original. I don't particularly enjoy stories in which the monster is implicitly a symbol for some human flaw, but the zombie taking the place of our conscience is effective. ( )

Took a few days, but i loved every story it contained. There are definitely some strange tales inside, with unique plots. Must-read for a zombie fan! ( )
  darkonelh3730 | Dec 27, 2013 |
Ordinarily, this book would have gotten only two stars because of the ratio of stories that made me glad I'd bought the book to stories I hated or stories which I won't remember in a week.

The first story in the book, Dan Simmons's This Year's Class Picture set the bar high. It's got your basic McGuyver-like adaptations to a broken society, high-tension moments and of course a zombie battle, but it's also got pathos and a bittersweet, heartstring-tugging ending.

In Death and Suffrage, Dale Bailey gives us one look at politics and the dead, and in Beautiful Stuff, Susan Palwick has a different take on the same subject. Both stories are evocative and moving.

Lisa Morton's Sparks Fly Upward has a heroine in a heart-rending situation who nevertheless gets a measure of revenge that a lot of readers might have wanted.

Catherine Cheek's She's Taking Her Tits to the Grave is an artful combination of gore, black humor and pathos.

And it should come as no surprise that The Last Song the Zombie Sang is brilliant in language, character and development, considering that it was written by Harlan Ellison and Roger Zelazny.

The shambling animated corpses of George Romero's films have lurched into the bookstores in droves in recent months, headlined by high-profile titles like World War Z and Monster Island. In this anthology, editor Adams (Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse) does a remarkable job of collecting a sampling of variations on this theme. These stories range from the truly disgusting (Poppy Z. Brite's 'Calcutta: Lord of Nerves') to the nearly wistful ('Followed' by Will McIntosh) and even one with no supernatural elements at all (Joe Hill's 'Bobby Conroy Comes Back from the Dead'). Included are pieces by big names in horror like Stephen King and Clive Barker but also contributions by less obvious suspects like Harlan Ellison, Sherman Alexie, and George R.R. Martin. The final treat is John Langan's 'How the Day Runs Down' a nasty little play best described as Our Town with zombies. Highly recommended for all horror fiction collections.

Recently prolific anthologist Adams (Seeds of Change) delivers a superb reprint anthology that runs the gamut of zombie stories. There's plenty of gore, highlighted by Stephen King's Home Delivery and David Schow's classic Blossom. Less traditional but equally satisfying are Lisa Morton's Sparks Fly Upward, which analyzes abortion politics in a zombified world, and Douglas Winter's literary pastiche Less than Zombie. Also outstanding, Kelly Link's Some Zombie Contingency Plans and Hannah Wolf Bowen's Everything Is Better with Zombies take similar themes in wildly different directions. Neil Gaiman's impeccably crafted Bitter Grounds offers a change of pace with traditional Caribbean zombies. The sole original contribution, John Langan's How the Day Runs Down, is a darkly amusing twist on Thornton Wilder's Our Town. There's some great storytelling for zombie fans as well as newcomers.
