Five stories caught my eye as deserving particular credit. Stuart Young's "Till Death Us Do Part" plays interestingly with alternative views on reality. Zach Black's "Running with the Dead" is a memorable vignette exploring the vitality and freedom death could offer. Richard Farren Barber's "Talk Show" uses a love of music to develop nuances of emotion in an apocalyptic scenario. Catherine Tomlinson's "The Dead Cruise" was an amusing zombie tale with some deadpan (ha, ha) delivery. Adrian Chamberlin's "Fisher of Men" gradually reveals information, building to a very effective crescendo.
As with many anthologies, readers won't like all the tales but there's some quality here. While Stuart Nield's "Mickey's Treasure" annoyed me with clumsy errors and forced figurative language, I was impressed by the work of Adrian Chamberlin and Richard Farren Barber in particular. I'll certainly look out for more of their writing.
