Zombies keep gaining in popularity, and strangely enough, I’m okay with that. The Living Dead 2, edited by John Joseph Adams, is a follow-up to 2008’s original anthology. Over 40 stories are crammed into this volume, including tales by modern zombie gods like Robert Kirkman, Max Brooks, David Wellington, and Jonathan Maberry. Relative newcomers include Brenna Yovanoff, Mira Grant, Scott Edelman, and S.G. Browne. Humans facing extinction at the hands of the undead, pirate zombies, and zombies versus dinosaurs are just a few of the spins on the zombie genre you will find in this anthology.
