Book Description

20 Mar 2013
What's sexy about zombies? 51 authors answered that question with wild, weird, and titillating tales. From love during the apocalypse, to love that goes beyond the grave and back again, to love that well, never dies, you'll find these pages filled with desires demanding to be fufilled, hungers to be slaked, and lovers who won't let a little thing like death (or undeath) come between them. Do zombies need sex as much as they need brains? What would you do to bring a lover back from the dead? What if you survived the apocalypse only to find yourself alone and sexually frustrated? Light some candles, put on some mood music, and cozy up with 50 Shades of Decay. The zombie sexpocalypse has begun...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good! 4 May 2013
Format:Paperback
50 Shades of Decay, as anyone familiar with recent pop culture would guess, is a play on 50 Shades of Grey, the popular Twilight fan fiction erotica. Only rather than being about BDSM, this is horror/erotica, and some of the stories within go into really alternative lifestyles. In fact, this anthology contained some stories that featured sub(sub?)genres that I didn't realize were out there. But there are 51 stories by 51 different authors, so their take on zombies and erotica varies widely. There are stories of love that leads to suicide come the apocalypse, zombie strippers, necromancy, necrophilia, and the list goes on. The stories range in quality from good to excellent, with my favorites leaning much more heavily into the horror genre.

Out of all of the short stories in this anthology, two in particular really stood out to me. Rabbits, by Guy Anthony De Marco, is a rather bleak story that features a zombie with a latent memory and a man who comes to realize that he has been reduced to nothing more than an animal in a cage. There were a few stories that dealt with similar themes, but De Marco manged to capture the sense of hopelessness in just a few short pages in a way that has stayed with me long after reading it. The other, and possibly the best story in the anthology, is Z Spot, by Benjamin Kane Ethridge. Ethridge's story revolves around a zombie stripper that is still going through the motions as she slowly decays, and who is also looking for an emotional connection. She finds it with one last customer, but things take a tragic turn. Ethridge is one of those rare writers who can take something that could easily be ridiculous and turn it into a moving story of love and loss.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last, something different. 21 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A great collection. Horror with a twist. Particularly enjoyed Something Borrowed by Nicky Peacock. Grossly romantic and easy to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombies need lovin' too! 28 Feb 2013
By Rina Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Decay is an anthology of 50+1 erotic short stories, each story is different aside from the shared theme of zombies and sex. There is sex with zombies, zombies having sex and humans having sex while there are zombies nearby. Lets just say there’s a lot of sex, and zombies.

First off I have to say that I’m not a big fan of zombies, and I haven’t read any of the 50 shades books; but I love short stories, and I have a warm spot for erotica (in my heart you dirty minded readers you!). So, when this book came across my radar I thought “sure why not?”

Aside from zombies and sex, humor was also a common element in a lot of the stories. But of course, with 51 stories it was no surprise to find that they also ran in gambit of styles, some were really good, and I wish they had been longer, some of them were pretty bad and left me wondering what I had just read; Some were cute, others were gross, some ended in such a way that I was left with a bad taste in my mouth, so to speak. Some were really gross and others were really sweet; and few of them were even, dare I admit it? Really Hot.

Ahem

Needless to say this is not a book for those with delicate sensibilities, or stomaches. However if you do venture into this with a delicate nature, you’ll end up nearly desensitized to the gore by the end of the book, so that might be something to consider. I would also advise against reading it on your lunch break until at least half way through the book, regardless of your sensibilities.

All in all I enjoyed this anthology, it was different from what I normally read and even though there were some parts that made me gag, I was very entertained throughout.

I was given a free copy of the book above in exchange for my honest review, all opinions are mine and do not reflect those of the authors or editors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombie erotica. It was just a matter of time. 2 Mar 2013
By Frank R. Errington - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Review copy

Fifty Shades of Decay was born of an idea that took form at Killercon in Vegas. The end result is a collection of 51 shorts of zombie erotica. That's right, Zombie Erotica. With the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey and our ongoing love affair with zombies, it was only a matter of time before someone did a mashup of the two genres.

With an anthology this ambitious there are bound to be a few stories that don't quite get the job done and there were a few of those, but there were enough stories that succeeded that the end result was a very entertaining read.

Many of the shorts are delightfully disgusting, some managed to gross me out and cause me to become aroused at the same time (for me, they were the ones that really captured the spirit of the anthology), some of the stories were very sweet and others were filled with raw sex and terror.

Here's a great line that captures the spirit of this project, from "Body Bag", by Shaun Meeks. "She was moving, moaning, asking to be pleased. And she was dead."

A couple of things I really enjoyed about Fifty Shades of Decay.

1) 51 different authors. The vast majority were new to me and I discovered several, that I'm excited about seeing what else they have to offer.

2) 51 different concepts of zombie erotica. That in itself was pretty amazing. Hat's off to editor Stacey Turner for presenting such a varied assortment of stories. The theme was consistent, but the stories all came at the subject matter in unique ways.

Needless to say, Fifty Shades of Decay is strictly adult fair and certainly not for everyone, but if you'd like to spice up your zombie experience then this is just what you're looking for. Available now from Angelic Knight Press.

Ethridge is one of those rare writers who can take something that could easily be ridiculous and turn it into a moving story of love and loss.

If I was giving awards away for titles, the award for best short story title ever would have to go to Pretty Kitty's Post Apocalypse Porn Palace. My love for alliteration aside, this was a good story. Jolie Chaton is the author and she has an original take on the zombie apocalypse, or at least one possible business opportunity that could be available afterward.

Overall this is a good anthology that I think would appeal to anyone who loves zombie fiction, and quite possibly a few of you weirdos out there who have truly outlandish fetishes. (That last bit is very tongue in cheek, so please don't send me any hate mail. Many thanks.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised 4 April 2013
By Hobbes End Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I will admit, I went into this anthology with low expectations. Sorry, but I have to be truthful here. I am not a fan of erotica, though I love short stories and zombies. So, I thought I would give it a shot. I started just reading a few of the shorts written by authors I was familiar with. Then I read more, and more, and more. I felt like a rubber-necker at a car accident. I couldn't stop.

These stories offer a little of everything in the zombie erotica genre (it'll catch on, I'm sure of it). There's zombies having sex, sex with zombies, humans having sex during the zombie apocalypse and, needless to say, a lot of necrophilia. Some of the stories were more erotica, with zombies thrown in almost as an afterthought, and vice-versa: zombie stories with sex thrown in.

Overall, the anthology entertained me. At times, I could not believe someone was sick enough to write what I was reading. There are some very talented writers in this collection. Check it out, I think you too will be pleasantly surprised.

This book was given to me by the publisher. Thank you!

Great job, I liked the range of stories and enjoyed the humor. I didn't finish the other fifty shades no problem here.
