    One thought on “The Mammoth Book of Zombies ”

    1. Several permanent faves I've read over and over many times in this anthology: On the Far Side of the Cadillac Desert with Dead Folks by Joe R. Lansdale - maybe the most bizarre most perfectest zombie short story ever about a gunslinger, a bounty hunter, some crazy nuns, zombies like you've probly never seen them before, and a classic that will go to the grave with me. The Song of the Slaves by Manly Wade Wellman - an awesome tale of voodoo and slavery I've reminisced about quite often over the y [...]

    2. After ploughing through the Stephen Jones-edited mammoth collections on vampires, werewolves and terror, I found myself sitting down with yet another hefty paperback – The Mammoth Book of Zombies. Here were 26 stories specifically tackling the undead, some written in the 19th century and others bang up to date. I was expecting some repetition in the stories – after all, zombies are a pretty limited menace – but I ended up pleasantly surprised by the sheer breadth and variety of work contai [...]

    3. Full of some great stories, with Lansdale's Far Side of the Cadillac Desert being a personal favorite.

    4. A superb collection of zombie tales with stories by:Clive BarkerRamsey CampbellManly Wade WellmanR. Chetwynd-HayesEdgar Allan PoeKarl Edward WagnerCharles L. GrantBasil CopperM.R. JamesNicholas RoyleBrian LumleyH.P. LovecraftLisa TuttleDavid RileyGraham MastertonDavid SuttonLes DanielsHugh B.

    5. I really enjoyed this collection. Had a nice mix of themes, humor, horror, types of zombies, story lengths, etc. The beginning stories were a little heavy on the aspiring writer hero (come on people, let's get creative), but overall was quite varied. I will probably check out some other collections in this series.

    6. Excellent anthology, but it should be called The Mammoth Book Of Old School Zombies, as there are practically no stories where the zombies are like Romero's zombies or newer, and the cover also gives the impression that it should be about the newer type of zombies. These are mostly ghouls in some form.But apart from that, the stories are of a high quality.

    7. For a mammoth book of zombies, there are no zombies. Ghosts are not zombies, Frankenstein's Monster is not a zombie. Zombie's don't talk, work, handle weapons. This collection of short stories fell short of being mammoth. Pass on this one.

    8. Loved it! It was a great mix of old stories from authors like Edgar Allen Poe and M.R. James, as well as more current authors like Clive Barker.

    9. Favorites:The Song of the Slaves, by Manly Wade WellmanSticks by Karl Edward WagnerThe Taking of Mr Bill by Graham MastertonThey're Coming for You by Les DanielsLater by Michael Marshall Smith

    10. Pretty much what you'd expect from an anthology. Some very good, some very bad. Worth a read if you're into that kind of thing, it's good for dipping in and out of.

    11. This is a big book and it took me a while but it was worth it as it has many great stories. Most of the authors are English and that gives the whole a fresh and different background, a departure of other anthologies I've read before; this feeling was increased by the fact that most of the stories were written a very long time ago, a century in some cases! That's also very cool because the pieces tend to be more atmospheric and there's nothing better than creepy horror. The settings of the storie [...]

    12. This was a short story collection I picked up a couple of years ago, and thanks to a short story of my own I'm working on, I finally got around to reading it. Several stories stand out: Song of the Slaves by Manly Wade Wellman; Sticks by Karl Edwar Wagner; On the Far Side of the Cadillac Desert With Dead Folks by Joe R. Lansdale all truly shine. Rising Generation by Ramsey Campbell; Out of Corruption by David Riley; Marbh Bheo by Peter Tremayne all are worth recommending. The Ghouls by R. Chetwy [...]

    14. The title says it all, really. A collection of stories all featuring, in one form or another, zombies. For modern readers, I'd say that perhaps a lot of these don't seem like the zombies they'd be familiar with - there are many here which aren't just the shambling undead looking for a bite to eat. Instead, there's zombies more akin to the original 'zombie' in lore, characters which are a touch more general undead than what we now think of as zombie, and a number of different live characters surr [...]

    15. This book is a collection of 26 zombie mini-stories by such authors as Clive Barker, Joe R. Landsdale, Robert Bloch, H.P. Lovecraft, Ramsey Campbell, Brian Lumley, Les Daniels, Edgar Allan Poe, Brian Lumley, Manly Wade Wellman, and others.These stories provide different interpretations of the zombie. We typically see them as mindless, flesh eating beings that thrive on the movie screen, but in these stories the zombies are aware, have cognitive thought, and plan devious acts to obtain their goal [...]

    16. Brilliant! After reading 21st Century Dead full of short zombie stories which I majorly enjoyed reading the different types of zombies portrayed and the different places the stories were all set in I picked up this book which high hopes and was not disappointed. With writers such as Edgar Allan Poe and Clive Barker you were bound to be delivered pages of macabre and horror. Several of the short stories contained in this anthology urged me on to keep reading with gruesome twists and turns or surp [...]

    17. This anthology had a lot of very good stories, I am however not a fan of the last story, it is too far out there, I have read Lonsdale before in a werewolf anthology, his stories are too macho and over sexual where the heroine is always a prostitute or easy type women, the western theme really starts to get old too favorite was the story of the husband who comes back to haunt his cheating wife. I would recommend.

    18. As of now, I'm only 60 pages in, but I have to say that the story by Manly Wade Wellman, regarding the horrific fate of a creepy slaver was amazing. I wish all those who had/have the audacity to abuse and control their fellow humans could have met the same ends. I'm loving this book so far. It was pretty darn good. I would recommend it.

    19. This has been some of the best zombie stories I’ve ever read. I know that with a lot of stories (truly a lot) there should be some stories that aren’t that good, and while that is true, they deserve to be read at least once.If you love zombies, read this, you’ll be surprised at the quality of stories you’ll discover here.

    20. The stories set inside are of an old school zombie sort, slow, but violent. I have read stories by most of the authors in this book and reading these stories brought me back around to my high school days when the subjects of zombies and monsters were a little more taboo. This is a book I will continue to reread over the years and continue to enjoy.

    21. It's a big (mammoth, you might say) collection of zombie stories before zombies became trendy and everyone jumped on the undead bandwagon. So you've got some really good stories by some really good authors who wrote about zombies because they like them and NOT just because it was the in thing to do. What's not to love?

    22. I really liked that this book is filled with all the possible different interpretations of zombies, and there was so much variation in the stories. I did feel it was a little long at times, but hardcode zombie fans would definitely enjoy this one.

    23. For all that it is entitled "The Monster Book of Zombies," the majority of the stories within are not strictly about "zombies," as the word is used post "Night of the Living Dead." The subtitle of "Tales of the Walking Dead" is a little more apt and accurate.

    24. I wouldn't say that every story in this was 5 stars, but the overall feeling of all the stories together kept me going. I do love the zombie as a bad guy. This is not a zombie book this is a book of the undead. Not including vampires. I still loved it.

    25. Good fun. The last story was like nothing I have ever read. Over the top doesn't even begin to describe it. But a lot of good variety and subtlety throughout that was unexpected. A GREAT birthday gift.

    26. As the title of the review says, the collection of zombie stories is solid and good. The best stories are in the last quarter of the book. I think that everybody will find some entertaining short stories in the collection.

    27. A very entertaining collection of short stories! A must read for those who love classic zombie literature. No gore, just really good storytelling.

    28. This book was a very good collection of zombie short stories. I was surprised and impressed the variety of the stories featured.
