Romero, to present a collection of all-new tales set during the forty-eight hours of that legendary outbreak.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In 1968, director Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, which depicted 48 hours of a zombie outbreak, took the movie world by storm. Here, author Maberry and Romero bring us back to those two days of the newly risen dead with this anthology of 19 tales. Along with original stories by both men, there are entries such as Joe R. Lansdale’s “Dead Man’s Curve,” in which a brother and sister come face to face with the undead during a drag race, and Mira Grant’s “You Can Stay All Day,” about a young zookeeper. All of these stories highlight the fear, darkness, hope, and humor facing the living dead can bring. ­Verdict: Zombie fiction fans can’t get enough of their favorite monsters, but this masterly collection of tales from some of today’s greatest speculative writers will sate their appetite—for a while.” Library Journal
