Holiday of the Dead, from Wild Wolf publishing, very well might be the best collection of zombie stories ever assembled. 38 stories in all, ranging from the straightforward to the sublime, the slick to the undeniably tragic, from some of the best in the genre. Add to that a whole crop of talented up-and-comers, and you have a mammoth book of zombie deliciousness that deserves a spot in your library. The book also comes with two prizes inside. A short story called "The Walk-in" from John Russo, co-writer of Night of the Living Dead, as well as a snippet of the screenplay to the upcoming sequel to the film Pontypool, written by Tony Burgess. The amount of quality in Holiday is simply astounding. There is a story for every mood and almost every situation. If you love zombies, (and frankly, why wouldn't you?), you need this book, pure and simple. --Buyzombie.com
