Format: Paperback
Back in 2010 I read Zombie Apocalypse and was pleased to discover a polished anthology that contained some first class fiction. This year, the second book of the series was launched at Fantasycon.

As with the first collection there are many differing accounts of the fall of humanity and the rise of the zombie. Overall the collection is pretty solid and there are a few tales that I thought really stood out.

Paris When it Sizzles by Anne Billson - High fashion and flesh-eaters? Who wouldn't want to know how zombies fair on the streets the French capital city. The undead hordes versus Gallic indifference is a sight to behold. One of the things I enjoyed about this novel's predecessor was that the action took place all across the globe. I'm not always a fan of apocalyptic fiction that sticks to a small canvas, I want events to feel truly global. Stories like this maintain the international scope of the events that are unfolding.

Pages from a British Field Manual by Guy Adams - Interspersed between the pages of the manual for dealing with the zombie situation, a man writes a final letter to his son. He tries to explain his reasons for deciding to join the fight against the undead. This story illustrates very effectively that zombie stories don't always have to about gore or body horror. It's nice when fiction catches you by surprise and takes you in completely the opposite direction from where you expected to go. This ends on a bittersweet note that tugged at the old heartstrings.

Peace Land Blood by Sarah Pinborough - The basis of this story is a series of increasingly desperate telegrams sent from the British Ambassador in Russia, back to the UK. This is another example of fiction that very effectively captures the collapse of society on a foreign shore.

Format: Paperback
[With apologies to Joe R. Lansdale for stealing, above, the subtitle to his second 'Drive-In' novel!]

First off, I have to admit: I was a little weary when I heard about this sequel - the first one was such a giddy good read that I thought, 'I hope this isn't the publisher pressuring the editor to cash in on a hit.' I needn't have worried. Earlier this year I read an online interview with the editor in which he explained that, back in the beginning when his ambitions for the project were all pie-in-the-sky, he envisioned it as a trilogy. Also, it has been two years since the first instalment; a length of time that reassures the reader that just as much care and attention has been paid to this new instalment as was to the original.

This, then, is the second of what promises to be creator/editor Stephen Jones's crowning achievement in his, so far, almost 25 year career as a book-published editor (his early roots as a magazine editor go back another two decades before that).

And it's not really a sequel as such, in the sense that it picks up where the last one left off. Instead, it almost constitutes another retelling of the entire tale, whilst at the same time laying out in scientific detail how the virus that caused the zombies in the first place is mutating, how they're evolving... becoming organised... becoming vocal...

Humanity, then, is not up against mindless eating machines. And don't forget that great British penchant for irony: who said the book's title refers to humanity's fightback?

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read quite a lot 'Zombie' type books, among others, and I disagree with some of the reviewers here. Like the first book, I thought it was a good read, with an interesting back story on the historical origins supplemented with various 'stories'. Overall I have a preference for this kind of book, rather than the usual weakly plotted, often sexist story lines or endless weapons descriptions in many books that abound in the genre. If I have a reservation it's about the move it seems to making into realms of fantasy towards the end with the machinations of the 'leader' of the undead. I have always felt a good Zombie type story can be sustained without such flights of fancy. It won't put me off reading the next book but it will be with a slight concern as to where it is heading.

Format: Paperback
Started well, enjoyed the new take on writing which included newspaper, media, television, emails. But this became boring towards the end, sometimes making it hard to follow what was going on.
I love zombie books and try to read as many as possible, while this one was ok I am glad it was a loan and not something I spent money on. It took a different route than most (not wanting to ruin the book) it was not something I liked, I like my zombie's to be zombies, I want to see people fighting back and to hear their sad stories, this book starts this way yet ends completely different and if you are a zombie/surivial against all odds person who enjoy's the fight to remain human in a world full of zombies then this book is not for you.
Is this book worth a read? Only if you want something different than normal zombie books, I would not tell anyone to buy this book myself, because it was not an enjoyable read.
