Like a lot of fiction from this genre, some were really good, but most weren't - and an attempt at social commentary was usually the deciding factor i A friend of mine lent me this book, and I read it over the Christmas holiday of Like a lot of fiction from this genre, some were really good, but most weren't - and an attempt at social commentary was usually the deciding factor in either case.
Cover I have to address the cover of this book: I know you can't judge a book by its cover, but I mean, really, it looks like a book about witchcraft, or ghosts, or demonic possession.
I have no idea who picked the artwork, but he or she should be subjected to one of the gruesome endings that the characters within the book eventually meet!
Foreword by George A. Romero Supposedly, all of the stories in the book were either set in George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" universe or were deeply inspired by it.
I have no idea what George actually said in the forward, but I am sure sure it was a humble recognition of his own stature as the father of the genre.
God bless you, George, you sick fuck! New Hope for the Future" by Skipp and Spector I have no idea what these guys had to say either; unlike Romero's forward, I probably didn't even read it, actually.
Schow This was the story of a man and his undead whore. She didn't start out that way, but apparently she didn't manage to say the safe word before choking to death on her own vomit, then tearing her jon's penis off with her zombie vagina.
No, I'm not kidding. I didn't really care for this story, and the author has no one but himself to blame because when he went for subtlety instead of shock, his writing wasn't half bad.
The last page of the story describes shocked hotel employees who had seen a good-looking, up-scale call girl I like to think of Julie Roberts in "Pretty Woman" go into a room, and witness a blood-spattered undead corpse, bloated from consuming its patron come out.
Zombie short fiction writers seem to have a think for castration and penis mutilation - I'm almost positive the undead avenger avengerette?
I think as a whole the body of his work is overrated, and I'll be damned why it seems to be that his best books are awful movies.
Whether it is or it isn't, the zombie plague is apparently an extra-terrestrial un life form that the press has dubbed "Star Wormwood.
To be honest, I wish the story had been about the ill-fated astronauts who attempted to rendezvous with Star Wormwood. That's pretty much this story.
Well, it happens again in this story. There is a particularly graphic passage about what happens when you grab a man by his junk and disembowel him by jerking up really hard.
Props to the author. It's hard to have an over-the-top gross-out scene in a zombie story that doesn't involve necrophilia, and this story has it.
Oh, and it also has some necrophilia, too. It really didn't have anything to do with zombies, Romero-esque or otherwise.
All around the world people are shaking their heads violently for no apparent reason. If you ask them why they're unresponsive.
If you grab them by their head, then their body twists beneath them. Eventually, everyone's' heads come off, and it turns out that their abdomens have mutated into giant maws that eat them.
The only thing missing from this story was someone's belly button moaning "brains! Zombies will act out the things they see in porn with each other!
Incredibly, zombies breed healthy, cherubic little human babies and don't eat them, but feed them strained peas and carrots until their human offspring are mature enough to reanact porn on their own, thus perpetuating the cycle of living and undead sex.
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. I was in the back of the bookstore, good old B. Dalton, and called out to me Zombie fanfic?
Dalton, and called out to me as she waved the book over her head. Apr 09, Andrea rated it really liked it Shelves: Though I'm a bit burnt out on zombie material, this collection was appealing for it's place as a direct successor to the Romero trilogy.
Allegedly, this is all original content written specifically for this book. It boasts a rock star list of horror authors so each story has a distinctive voice and the writing quality is excellent.
No slouches in the bunch. My favorite, Jerry's Kids Meet Wormboy, was by an author new to me - David Schow - so, as I'd hoped when I picked up Book of the Dead, I hav Though I'm a bit burnt out on zombie material, this collection was appealing for it's place as a direct successor to the Romero trilogy.
May 02, Tom rated it it was amazing. Great anthology of zombie stories that range across a number of styles. I've read it a couple of times.
Stories that really stand out from this collection: Jun 30, Stephen White rated it it was amazing. In the words of the editors: These stories go too far.

All the stories in the anthology are united by the same premise seen in the apocalyptic films of George A. Romero , depicting a worldwide outbreak of zombies and various reactions to it.
The first book was followed three years later by a follow-up, Still Dead: Book of the Dead 2 , with a new group of writers tackling the same premise, though the second book put the stories in order according to their imagined chronology of the zombie takeover.
The Book of the Dead compilations are regarded as classic anthologies in the horror and splatterpunk genres, featuring a great number of famous names including Stephen King , Joe R.
Lansdale , Robert R. McCammon and foreworded by George A. Romero and Tom Savini. They are likely the first anthologies of zombie-themed tales ever printed, and have been cited as perhaps the first true "zombie literature" as such.
According to author Ian McDowell , a third anthology was planned back in However, bad luck led to it going "through many permutations and publishers over the years.And the Master of Madness, chief of a powerful, fiendish syndicate, was spreading his germs of mania unchecked.
