You can't kill the dead! Like any good monster, the zombie has proven to be
ever-evolving, monumentally mutable, and open to seemingly endless imaginative
interpretations: the thralls of voodoo sorcerers, George Romero's living dead,
societal symbols, dancing thrillers, viral victims, reanimated ramblers, video
gaming targets, post-apocalyptic permutations, shuffling sidekicks, literary
mash-ups, the comedic, and, yes, even the romantic. Evidently, we have an
enduring hunger for this infinite onslaught of the ever-hungry dead. Hoards of
readers are now devouring zombie fiction faster than armies of the undead could
chow down their brains.
It's a sick job, but somebody had to do it: explore the innumerable necrotic
nightmares of the latest, greatest, most fervent devotion in the history of
humankind and ferret out the best of new millenial zombie stories: Zombies:
The Recent Dead.
