The living dead are more alive than ever! Zombies have become more than an iconic monster for the 21st century: They are now a phenomenon constantly revealing as much about ourselves - and our fascination with death, resurrection, and survival - as our love for the supernatural or post-apocalyptic speculation. Our most imaginative literary minds have been devoured by these incredible creatures and produced exciting, insightful, and unflinching new works of zombie fiction.
Cleveland is now a city of zombies and a penal colony. Cahill, a criminal serving his sentence decides to forgo joining the surviving men in order to live on his own. At first he’s terrified of zombies, but that terror gives way to curiosity and he begins to conduct research in order to understand the creatures better.
An affecting tale of the struggle to retain one’s humanity in the face of societal breakdown. With the population sliding toward unemployment, homelessness and desperation, one woman ekes out a living fashioning “reborns” for clients of a particular taste.
Set on a distant planet, this is a gripping tale about a colony that believes in "appropriate technology adoption". When a heavily armed clan arrives at the colony, while it's being visited by off-world anthropologists, events spiral out of control, and the colony's beliefs are put to the test. The story is told from the viewpoint of a young woman - who soon learns just how high the price of wisdom can be.
