The earth cannot contain the dead, graves opening wide to disgorge rotting bodies! Maggot-filled, bloated with dripping pus, these mindless creatures only have one need-to feed on human flesh! The zombie lives again in this anthology, filled with hungry corpses that can't get enough. Death, despair and loss, all will be experienced as you are taken on a trip into the very bowels of Hell. The living dead are not forgiving, nor do they feel pity. As you feel their cold embrace, and their teeth sinking into your throat to tear out your jugular, just pray it's a quick death, before oblivion claims you.

But when the Rehabilitation facility is attacked by an angry mob of the living, things start getting all too serious.... Another haunting Tale of the Biotech Revolution.

The web of power looks smooth and peaceful -- until a new threat looms -- in the fifth tale from the Five Kingdoms. Prince Albion expects a unique occasion when he starts planning Cockenzie Rood Day to celebrate his kingdom -- and himself. What he doesn't expect is boppings on the head and kidnapping, all because a zombie wants to play his fiddle in the talent contest. With a misbehaving path, a romantic bat, and a greedy butler to set them on their way, Gracie Gillypot and Prince Marcus are off on their fifth adventure. It's up to a Trueheart, a resourceful prince, and Gubble the troll to stop the zombie before he does some giant damage to the Five Kingdoms.

When rural Ohio college professor Peter Mellor dies in an automobile accident during a zombie outbreak, he is reborn as a highly intelligent (yet somewhat amnesiac) member of the living dead. With society crumbling around him and violence escalating into daily life, Peter quickly learns that being a zombie isn't all fun and brains. Humans-unsympathetic, generally, to his new proclivities-try to kill him at nearly every opportunity. His old friends are loath to associate with him. And he finds himself inconveniently addicted to the gooey stuff inside of people's heads. As if all this weren't bad enough, Peter soon learns that his automobile accident was no accident at all. Faced with the harrowing mystery of his death, Peter resolves to use his strange zombie "afterlife" to solve his own murder. Skillfully combining the genres of horror, humor, and film noir, Zombie, Ohio weaves an enthralling and innovative tale that any fan of the current zombie craze is sure to relish. Followers of detective and horror fiction alike will find something to love about Zombie, Ohio-a tale of murder, mystery, and the walking dead.
