A large, hairy, tropical spider?
A poisonous snake?
A large rat? – with red eyes of course!
Or would you go in for smaller fry like a mouse, or a scorpion, or an ant?
Are these unpleasant creatures in every case as nasty as they seem?
Read the book and find out ….

Blurb (Target paperback)
Even the human fear of death pales beside the terror of the undead.
The zombie – the walking dead man – brings the realms of the supernatural well within the bounds of belief, for the reawakened corpse is a horrifyingly imaginable phenomenon.
From the early ‘Dead Men Working in the Cane Fields’ by W. E. Seabrook to W. Stanley Moss’s masterly ‘The Zombie of Alto Parana’ and the more recent ‘Ballet Negre’ by English writer Charles Birkin, Peter Haining’s collection of the best of zombie stories is guaranteed to chill the blood and raise the hairs on the back of your neck…
