I've only read Joe Hill's "Bobby Conroy Comes Back from the Dead"and recent Bram Stoker Award Winner, Lisa Morton's "Sparks Fly Upward" stories, but I am already a little in love with John Joseph Adams' zombie anthology The Living Dead (2008). These frightening, witty and unconventional zombie tales remind the audience why these contemporary masters of horror are so amazing. With short stories from Clive Barker, Stephen King, Poppy Z. Brite and Neil Gaiman, this book is a must-have for any horror fan and writer.
Amazon.com with writers such as Max Brooks, Carrie Ryan and Cherie Priest. Yes, I am shame-faced since I don't know who they are, but I cannot wait to read their work.
If you're a zombie writer, crawl over to the flash fiction Web site, Flashes in the Dark, and submit to their Resurrection Contest that ends on June 19!
