Waiting on Wednesday - 02.03.10

I'm waiting for...

An Anthology of the Undead

edited by Christopher Golden

This week is Zombie Week at Book Chick City!

She will be giving us some zombie goodness with reviews of some stories from the Zombie: An Anthology of the Undead.

Instead of the above title, I found this version of the book. Same cover image. I'm guessing it's the same.

The New Dead:
A Zombie Anthology
edited by Christopher Golden

Release date: February 16, 2010

Description from the amazon:

The hungry dead have risen. They shamble down the street. They hide in back yards, car lots, shopping malls. They devour neighbors, dogs and police officers. And they are here to stay. The real question is, what are you going to do about it? How will you survive?


Stoker-award-winning author Christopher Golden has assembled an original anthology of never-before-published zombie stories from an eclectic array of today's hottest writers. Inside there are stories about military might in the wake of an outbreak, survival in a wasted wasteland, the ardor of falling in love with a zombie, and a family outing at the circus. Here is a collection of new views on death and resurrection.

With stories from Joe Hill, John Connolly, Max Brooks, Kelley Armstrong, Tad Williams, David Wellington, David Liss, Aimee Bender, Jonathan Maberry, and many others, this is a wildly diverse and entertaining collection...the Last Word on the New Dead.

Please note: some of these authors will be doing book signings on the February 16 release date. Check out Christopher's site to see if anyone's coming to your town. Sadly none will be in San Francisco :-(
