I got a copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewAnthologies are always difficult for me to rate so many different stories so many authors and you know you re bound to find very good pieces and some you don t like at all As far as collections go this one about zombies was a fairly good one all in all that I would rate a 35 to 4 starsAlso the time I spend reading a book is usually a good indicator of my interest in it but in this case it doesn t apply I was reading a couple of other zombie themed books in the meantime and I preferred to go slow rather than eat too much of the same thing at once pun totally intended of courseMy favourites Iphigenia in Aulis the story that spun The Girl With All The Gifts so no surprise here Reading this first draft was interesting even though I liked the novel better since it was developed The Naturalist nasty and vicious undertones here What Maisie Knew a dark and twisted take on what use zombies can be Somehow it also made me think of Lolita probably because of the way the narrator views himself The Day the Music Died a manager trying to cover up that his money making rock star is actually dead This one had a twisted funny side that spoke to me Don t ask me why The Death and Life of Bob how zombies are not necessarily what you expect and how dark and narrow minded humans can be too Jack and Jill parallels between the zombies and a child who s sick with cancer and already a living dead in that he knows he probably won t stay in remission for long The fact that I actually enjoyed a story with cancer in it is mind boggling and speaks of how it managed to make me forget my own fears in that regard The Gravedigger of Konstan Spring a remote little town where people don t seem to stay dead for long Disturbing strange uirky and full of moments when I wondered to which extent the inhabitants would go to keep their gravedigger Chew disturbing not for its take on zombies but for what actual human beings can do to other human beings What We Once Feared another story bent on revealing how bleak human nature can be and how dire situations can reveal the worst in people Aftermath the title says it all How people manage and how life gets back on track slowly after the cure to the zombie virus has been found Disturbing aspects about what killing those zombies actually meant Love Resurrected a dark fantasy tale of sorcery necromancy and of a woman who has to keep battling even after the flesh has left her bones Present sad and touching in a terrible way Bit Rot when a zombie story collides with science fiction of the space travelling kind The reason behind the bit rot was a nice change for meOK stories The Afflicted I liked the idea behind it the elderly ones only falling ill alas everybody s doom to grow old but it deflated a bit after a while Becca at the End of the World the last hour of a teenager However it was a little too short to be as powerful as it could be IMHO Delice not one I ll remember for long but nice to read Trail of Dead good concept but I m not too sure of the apprentice s part in that it seemed unfocused Stemming the Tide a little weird though also poetic in its own way Those Beneath the Bog the curse on a lake and how old folk tales shouldn t be discarded Perhaps a wee bit too long though What Still Abides very very weird in that it tries to emulate Old English grammar I can t make up my mind about it but overall it still felt strange in a sort of good way for me In The Dreamtime of Lady Resurrection beautiful and dreamy Not exactly a zombie story though Til Death Do Us Part not exactly original still enjoyable A wife comes back from the grave and her family tries to keep her with them The Harrowers the narrator s name kind of tiped me about the ending however it remained interesting Resurgam a good idea that unfortunately ended up in two storylines not meshing up together well I still liked the Victorian narrative though A Shepherd of the Valley a bit predictable The Hunt Before and The Aftermath I wasn t sure at first where this one was going but it had interesting insights into revenge in generalThe ones I didn t like Dead Song I didn t care for the actor narrating story approach Another one might have worked better because there was a good idea behind it Pollution I like Japanese culture but the tropes were too heavy handed here Kitty s Zombie New Year forgettable I didn t really see the point to this story Selected Sources for the Babylonian Plague of the Dead the narrative style didn t do it for me at all here Which is really too bad because the different setting made for uite interesting grounds Rocket Man I don t know if it was meant to be comical or not It didn t leave much of an impression but then I m not too interested in base ball for starters which doesn t help I Waltzed with a Zombie I couldn t push myself to get interested in it I don t know why I neither adore nor terribly dislike Hollywood B movie settings in general so maybe it was the narrative that didn t grab meNote A couple of stories are actually in poetic form which makes them harder to rate yes including Neil Gaiman s one Dark Viking (Viking II, the Bog”• Neil Gaiman “The Day Broken the Saucers Came” poem• Roxane Gay “There is No ‘E' in Zombi Which Means There Can Be No You Or We”• Ron Goulart “I Waltzed with a Zombie”• Eric

I got a copy Bad Romance through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewAnthologies are always difficult for me The Mistake to rate so many different stories so many authors and you know you re bound The Man Who Saw Everything to find very good pieces and some you don Penguins Poems for Life t like at all As far as collections go The Armourers House this one about zombies was a fairly good one all in all Stage Coach (Saddle Club, that I would rate a 35 Art as Music, Music as Poetry, Poetry as Art, from Whistler to Stravinsky and Beyond to 4 starsAlso Ask the Past the Anatomy of Violence this case it doesn La grande casa t apply I was reading a couple of other zombie Achieving Work-Life Balance themed books in Fearless Warriors the meantime and I preferred 21 Great Ways to Manage your Time and Double your Productivity to go slow rather The Tea House on Mulberry Street than eat Glue Sniffing & Out of Body Experiences too much of The Scientific American Day in the Life of Your Brain the same Blood Heir (Blood Heir, thing at once pun The Tenth Parallel totally intended of courseMy favourites Iphigenia in Aulis The Poincaré Conjecture the story Icarus at the Edge of Time that spun The Girl With All The Gifts so no surprise here Reading What Every Indian Should Know Before Investing this first draft was interesting even Back to School with Mr. Men Little Miss though I liked Uni the Unicorn (Uni the Unicorn, the novel better since it was developed The Naturalist nasty and vicious undertones here What Maisie Knew a dark and Certain Magical Acts twisted The Descent of Alette

Egypt twisted funny side The Perfect Murder (Inspector Ghote, that spoke Lislam Et Le Réveil Arabe to me Don The Oxford Companion to Twentieth-Century Literature in English t ask me why The Death and Life of Bob how zombies are not necessarily what you expect and how dark and narrow minded humans can be The White Guns too Jack and Jill parallels between The Book of Football Quotations the zombies
