RESURRECTION

The hungry dead have risen. They shamble down the street. They hide in backyards, car lots, shopping centres. They devour neighbors, dogs and policemen. And they are here to stay. The real question is, what are you going to do about it? How will you survive? How will the world change when the dead begin to rise?

Bram Stoker-award-winning author Christopher Golden has assembled an original anthology of zombie stories from an eclectic array of today’s most popular horror, fantasy, thriller and literary writers. Inside are tales about military might in the wake of an outbreak, survival in a wasteland, the ardor of falling in love with a zombie, and a family outing at the circus. Here is a collection of new views on death and resurrection.

With stories from Joe Hill, John Connolly, Max Brooks, Kelley Armstrong and many others, this is a wildly diverse and entertaining collection – the Last Word on the undead.

THE END OF THE WORLD – WITH FLESH-EATING ZOMBIES!

In the near future, a desperate and ever-more controlling UK government attempts to restore a sense of national pride with a New Festival of Britain. But construction work on the site of an old church in south London releases a centuries‑old plague that turns its victims into flesh-hungry ghouls whose bite or scratch passes the contagion – a supernatural virus which has the power to revive the dead – on to others.

`The Death’ soon sweeps across London and the whole country descends into chaos. When a drastic attempt to eradicate the outbreak at source fails, the plague
spreads quickly to mainland Europe and then across the rest of the world.

Told through a series of interconnected eyewitness narratives – text messages, e-mails, blogs, letters, diaries and transcripts – this is an epic story of a world plunged into chaos as the dead battle the living for total domination.

Will humanity triumph over the worldwide zombie plague, or will the walking dead inherit the Earth?

Index To Twenty Years Of Best New Horror

Blurb:

For the past twenty years the annual Best New Horror series has been the major showcase for superior short stories and novellas of horror and dark fantasy. Edited by Stephen Jones, the World Fantasy Award, British Fantasy Award and International Horror Guild Award-winning series has published more than 450 stories by around 200 of the genre’s most famous and acclaimed authors, as well as those newcomers who are just starting out on their careers. To celebrate the anthology’s twentieth anniversary, the editor has selected from each volume one story that he considers to be the “best” for reasons explained in his historical introduction to each tale. As a result, some of horror’s biggest names are represented, including Stephen King, Clive Barker, Peter Straub, Harlan Ellison, Brian Lumley and Neil Gaiman, along with newer writers such as Joe Hill, Glen Hirshberg, Mark Samuels and Terry Lamsley. With a unique Introduction by Ramsey Campbell, and an indispensable Index detailing the entire contents of the series over all twenty volumes, The Very Best of Best New Horror is a tribute to the world’s premier annual anthology of contemporary horror fiction.

Blurb:

Too often contemporary horror fiction denies, forgets or is even unaware of its roots in classic dark literature. The man legitimately called the father of the genre, Edgar Allan Poe, thrust terror into the soul of humanity, while his illegitimate descendants located it in the cosmos, across nations, in science, through history, in nature, in the city — in short, wherever people come together and invariably attempt to dull their imaginations. But experience is always too cruel.

These themes are of course relevant today.

This book aims to show how the ideas and techniques of the greats might be utilised to explore the modern world. Here you’ll find neither pastiche nor period prose, rather thoroughly contemporary visions whose aging, tell-tale heart still beats with dismaying memory of the past and irrepressible fear for the future…

30 original stories from some of the finest practitioners in the field, including a brand new tale from modern master Ramsey Campbell.
