Good set of short stories. My favorite overall had to be Ghost Dog but I liked a few of the stories that went off track with the traditional zombie storyline. Read full review

Usually, I find it difficult to give anthologies a reasonable review, as there are usually a couple of howlers in a collection. This was different though & I did quite like the variety & difference in this collection. Worth a look. Read full review
