    1. So far I will give this a 3 star review. Some of the new twists on zombie stories are interesting, but I'm finding I like more traditional, "pure" zombie stories. I'm new to this "purist" designation for zombie fans that hold to the classic view of slow, non-talking zombies. I like some of the stories, but some were either poorly written or too vulgar to finish. I bought this to study the zombie short fiction market, but these stories make me want to just write a novel where I can track one pers [...]

    2. A very solid collection of "undead" short stories that isn't afraid to venture out some beyond the "normal" ideal, Best New Zombies Vol. 1 reminds me that horror can provide some of the best short fiction around. Lots of writing talent to be had here, plus it's an overall intriguing read, even for the non-zombie person. :)

    3. Best New Zombie Tales Vol 1, edited by James Roy Daley Best New Zombie Tales Vol 1, edited by James Roy Daley is a very solid offering from front to back. There are a few familiar names here, but the thrill comes from names I was not up to speed on. The introduction makes it seem as if there will be problems for “traditionalists” of the zombie genre. As I consider myself to fall in that category, I braced myself. There was no need. These were an eclectic and well-selected group of stories. T [...]

    4. You would think that with the current trend for all things zombie being cool that the sub-genre itself might be a little tired. It would seem that shambling, rotten corpses have went considerably mainstream over the last few years, resulting in the incredibly popular The Walking Dead TV series from AMC and the mega-budget production that is the big screen adaptation of Max Brooks' World War Z starring Brad Pitt. A bookworm such as myself might be forgiven for thinking that there really was nothi [...]

    5. Good collection of stories. Some great, some very good, only one that is so completely stupid the man should probably think about giving up writing until he learns that the story can reveal social commentary, but you can't start a story with a political ax to grind and expect it to turn into a decent story. The timeline and knowledge of the main character in Gary McMahon's "Nowhere People" didn't make sense. A humble cab driver isn't going to be able to uncover some conspiracy theory, and there [...]

    6. James Roy Daley did a great job in collecting this first volume of zombie fiction. It's a large book (110,000 words and nineteen stories) that's filled with all sorts of narratives: shocking humor rubs elbows with more mundane existentialism in these pages. It's a nice break from the "run, scavenge, fight" school of zombie fiction (although fans of that type of thing won't be turned off by this book, either).Best New Zombie Tales, Vol 1 was in the first batch of books that I purchased for the Ki [...]

    7. Introductions are supposed to either hook the reader or provide additional insight into the work(s) to follow. This one, however, was just an absurd, juvenile fantasy in which Daley defends his choice to put out yet another zombie book to H.P. Lovecraft, while Lovecraft holds his hand in a blender. It adds nothing to the book save for a really poor first impression.As for the collection itself, the goal is, as Daley puts it, “To put together the best zombie tales ever written. Don’t care wha [...]

    8. Before you read any further, my Fanboy Disclaimer: I dig anthologies. The reason I love them is simple; I have a problem. Every book I open, I finish. Most days, I’ve got so much to do I just don’t have time to take a big enough bite to satisfy the hunger. That can get really frustrating; especially if it’s not that great a book. The solution, for me, has been copious amounts of Anthologies. In general, most anthology stories are open and shut in an average twenty-five pages. Have an hour? [...]

    9. I love zombie short stories. This book took the idea what it means to be a zombie and ran with it. There wasn't very many classical Romero (Hail Our Future Zombie Overlord) zombies but the stories didn't stick to boring tropes either. A few of the stories weren't as strong as they could have been which kept the anthology out of the 5 star category but over all it was a blast. If I can find the next volume I will read it.

    10. This was a fine collection of stories, but I've got to tip my hat to Gregory Miller and his story "A sense of duty." It's one of the best stories I've ever read and I'm be looking for him on amazon and . The rest of the stories we're pretty good, although there were a few stinkers! Still I would recommend this book. Funny thing, after posting this review, I looked up Mr. Miller and it turns out I've got one of his books in my t.b.r. pile. He just moved up the list!

    11. This is a quick read. There are many different kinds of stories in this book--zombies from every angle, if you will. There were a few that weren't my normal reads but overall this is a decent book. There were some writers in this anthology that I will look for in the books and stories sections when I'm in the mood for a zombie fix.

    12. An interesting collection of tales with a variety of takes on zombies. Some of the stories were more traditional, some were more creative, while others played with the concept of zombies to create a creepy or eerie story to tell around a campfire at night. And I have to say that there was one story that seemed to parallel quite closely to The Walking Dead.

    13. A great read. I mostly read these stories on my Kindle while taking walks, and I must say they filled me with dread when I did so! I think my favorite story was "Feeding Frenzy", and nearly all of the stories are well written and engrossing. You won't regret going with this one.

    14. I was pleasantly surprised upon reading this book. I thought for the exceptional low price of $2.99, the stories had to whomp. Most of them were very good and well written. Out of the 20 stories, I can say there were two I didn't care for whatsoever. My fave was Zombie Love and Feeding Frenzy.

    15. A Must Read!!!If you are a fan of this genre, this is one collection you just can't pass up! Unique, entertaining, and all well written complete stories. An absolute pleasure you won't be disappointed!!!

    16. Great selection of stories. There are stories here that have some unusual zombies but none of the annoying "super zombies" and no annoying super heroes either. There is some pretty good humor, too.

    17. I'm rating this as a zombie book compared to all zombie books I've read. It is a series of short stories, written at all different times. If you are into zombie tales, a definite must read! It was very much enjoyed!

    18. I really enjoyed this book. I should mention, however, that the print version contains my 3-page comic "Sleepwalk: Working Stiff" and the print editions of volumes 2 and 3 contain additional "Sleepwalk" comics by me. Could make me a little biased but the book still rocks!

    19. Zombie Love was phenomenal! Great character development in a short story, and an eerie twist with the old lady witch. A great late night page turner.

    20. Great collectionThese stories were super creepy. I loved reading them and couldn't put it down. An excellent read especially on a quiet night

    21. Really nice collection of stories. One, or two, slow-to-build-up ones, but not a bad one in the bunch.

    22. Some great stories and some not as great but overall it kept my attention. Really enjoyable read.

    23. The Ray Garton story "Zombie Love" and Jonathan Maberry's "Pegleg and Paddy save the world" were the best of the bunch.

    24. just keeping the one, "zombie love," but it's a doozy.

    25. Some were good others not. I'm mad the one by Jeff Strand was 2 pages. I've never been impressed by a collection of authors and still not

    26. Not bad. Some were pretty good. Some were really bad. Although it is interesting of all the different variations of the theme.
