The New Dead: A Zombie Anthology by Christopher Golden
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
All stories within The New Dead are well done, but there are four that blew me away, for one reason or another--typically because they managed to frighten and/or disturb me. They are:
Lazerus by John Connolly
What Massie Knew by David Liss
Kids and Their Toys by James A. Moore
Twittering From the Circus of the Dead by Joe Hill
I'd also like to mention Family Business by Jonathan Maberry. Although this one did not disturb me, I found it very interesting and entertaining.
I was surprised that I liked the Joe Hill story so much, considering how it was written. Hill is so frigging talented, though, that he can make even the telling of an entire story in Twitter Tweets unsettling and frightening.
I recommend this anthology for these stories, if nothing else.

Also, my short story, The Promotion, was accepted by Title Goes Here: Magazine. The story will appear on their website sometime in 2011. It will be free for you to read. Which makes me happy. I can push it down your throats so much easier that way. Of course, I kid.
Or do I?
Writer, horror buff, book lover, comedy lover, hockey fan. Oh yeah!
