Summary, etc.:
Death is not the end! If you are too rational to believe otherwise, then we invite you to read the stories collected in The Monster Book of Zombies. Here are tales of the walking dead reanimated by black magic, weird science, outer space viruses, and plain old human irresponsibility. No matter how they are resurrected, all indulge in malevolent mischief and mayhem that will make you think twice about dismissing the dead as done. The twenty-six zombie tales gathered here cover more than a century and a half of horror history, and show the many aspects of this nightmare of the living dead in all of its gory glory. Soulless, mindless, and unstoppable, the zombies that shamble through these stories are sure to strike terror into the hearts of the most hardened horror reader. Beware the walking dead!
