Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Since the premier of George Romero's 1968 cult classic, The Night of the Living Dead, zombies have become an increasingly popular embodiment of malevolence in both movies and fiction. Despite its encyclopedic length, veteran horror editor Penzler should have little trouble finding an audience for this exhaustive compendium of zombie literature. The opening story by late anthropologist W. B. Seabrook purports to be a true account of his encounter with a real zombie a woman dosed with mind-numbing drugs in Haiti, where zombie myths were first hatched. Penzler also includes some early zombielike tales by nineteenth-century authors Poe and de Maupassant about risen corpses, albeit with their faculties intact. The bulk of these 67 mostly well-crafted tales, however, feature the now-familiar flesh-eating ghouls in plots that are variously whimsical and gory as conceived by some of horror's leading authors, from H. P. Lovecraft to Stephen King. While the anthology's grisly subject matter may not suit everyone's tastes, no well-stocked horror collection should be without it.--Hays, Carl Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Penzler's latest monster-sized anthology of monster stories is sure to call attention to the living dead the same way that his Vampire Archives (2009) spotlighted the undead. The 57 stories mostly feature the two main types of fictional zombie: pre-Night of the Living Dead voodoo-resurrected corpses (Manly Wade Wellman's "Song of the Slaves," August Derleth and Mark Schorer's "The House in the Magnolias") and modern Romero-esque brain-eating machines (Robert R. McCammon's "Eat Me," Stephen King's "Home Delivery"). Penzler makes a solid case for some horror classics being zombie tales in spirit if not in specifics, among them Robert E. Howard's Southern Gothic masterpiece "Pigeons from Hell" and Theodore Sturgeon's backwoods monster tale "It." He overreaches somewhat, though, in including H.P. Lovecraft's ghoul-fest "Pickman's Model" and F. Marion Crawford's haunted-stateroom story "The Upper Berth." Zombie fans will find this book controversial as well as comprehensive. (Sept.)
