lighthearted gallows humor 4 Nov. 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This eighteen new story anthology focuses on a variety of different "Undead" species and not just vampires as mummies, fossils, ghosts, and other supernatural creatures. The collection is divided into four major categories: Afterlife, Spirit, Flesh and Undead. Each section contains at least four entries. All the contributions are well written even as they run the gamut from humorous satire to ironic frightening lampoon. This reviewer's overall favorite section is the Afterlife as Sarah A. Hoyt, Dave Freer, Laura Resnick, and Esther M. Friesner provide revenant and irreverent glimpses of life in the beyond. As amusing is Jay Lake's ode to diets "Two All Beef Patties" (just avoid meat for a while). Readers will enjoy the look into whether one is BETTER OFF UNDEAD or not depends on what form you take (and the paranormal the reader likes best) as the rotting flesh of zombies leaves a lot to be desired especially if you are the clean up crew. This is lighthearted gallows humor with a tongue in cheek (that is if it has not rotted away) in which none of the authors take being undead graveyard seriously as even the Mummy is a con artist.

A Good Collection 24 Sept. 2012
By Steven Woodcock - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love collections like this and this book is no exception. I love having the ability to read a couple before bed....and if one's not working for me, I can just skip on to the next one. On average there are more that I like than not, which for any collection like this is about right.

There are 18 stories presented here and of course they're not all top-of-the-line, but then my favorites might well be your "meh" stories and vice versa. In my case I was particularly fond of "Gamma Ray vs. Death" and "Two All Beef Patties"....they're both quite good.

An excellent collection for anybody who enjoys this kind of rapid-paced read.
