By Jove, who doesn't love a good anthology?! I do. And if it's chock full 'o zombies - all the merrier I say.

Seriously, this was an excellent collection of stories! I curled up one evening with this baby and it was like opening a fresh can of roasted, mixed nuts WITHOUT any peanuts to slow a body down. It was that hard to stop reading and get some stupid sleep ;P

So, if you like anthologies, and if you LOVE zombies [well, like DUH ... who doesn't?] then

this is one you need to read.

Buy or Borrow - though I do think it makes a cozy addition to one's own personal library~

My favorite story in the book: Herbert West - Reanimator by H.P. Lovecraft [love the Cthulhu man]


  1. Have you seen the Reanimator movie? It's made of cheesetasticness and needs to be watched! It's campy and hilarious. I'm putting this one on my reading list.

  2. ooOOoo - love those old campy movies! Was Vincent Price in it?? I might have seen this years ago, or maybe the kids rented it. Either way I'll see if I can find it for Halloween :D

  3. Ha! Love the analogy. Begone, peanuts!

    Hehe. Sounds like a fun anthology!

  4. the cthulhu man sounds most interesting!

  5. You’ve been nominated by me as being Harder, Better, Faster and Stronger
    than the average blog!
    Head over to Gini's Win Stuff page ( and get the skinny,
    along with the Battle Badge and instructions.

  6. @ Vii - if you've not read much Lovecraft you are in for such a treat!!! Nothing beats the Cthulhu tales ;D

    @Carolina - I'm always thinking of FOOD ;P

    @McPig - Thank you SO much!!!! I'm heading over yonder way right now :D
