'Bits of the Dead' is one of the finest collections of truly great zombie short fiction. This tome features the literary lashings of notable authors:
Piers Anthony, Robert Appleton, Joel Arnold, Drew Brown, Adam-Troy Castro, Nick Cato, C.M. Clifton, Christopher Allan Death, Ed Dempster, J.G. Faherty, Paul A. Freeman, Charles A. Gramlich, J.H. Hobson, M.M. Johnson, Michael Josef, Kiernan Kelly, Nancy Kilpatrick, Michael Laimo, Catherine MacLeod, James Newman, Kurt Newton, Jeff Parish, Matthew John Peters, Jeffrey C. Pettengill, Daniel Pyle, Gina Ranalli, Steven Savile, Julia Sevin, R.J. Sevin, Nate Southard, Jeff Strand, Simon Strantzas, Marcie Lynn Tentchoff, Lee Thomas, William T. Vandemark, Steve Vernon, Tim Waggoner, and John Weagly.
All of these great stories are highlighted by the unique artwork of Sean Simmans who is one of the most versatile artists I have ever seen. His style changes from story to story and each short is perfectly accompanied by his work.
I'd put 'Bits of the Dead' right up there with the likes of Skipp and Spector's 'Book of the Dead' or David J Schow's 'Zombie Jam' - each eerie tale featuring it's own new take on the dead.
If you're a fan of zombies and zombie fiction...load your gun, stock your basement and make a run to grab this book!
