They won’t stay dead!
The zombies cannot be stopped. From the pitch-black holds of pirate ships and the tunnels beneath the war-torn jungles of Vietnam, they rise up. And there’s no way to stop them, no corner of the world that’s safe from the invasion. Secret government labs, the trendy galleries of New York’s art scene, the drawing rooms of nineteenth century England all become the lair of the living dead in this inventive and chilling collection of horror and dark fantasy tales.
Under the guidance of editor James Lowder, The Book of More Flesh presents more than two dozen original stories, including works from several hot authors:
David Dvorkin, author of fifteen novels, including the best-selling Star Trek: The Next Generation title, The Captains’ Honor.
J. Robert King, author of several best-selling Ravenloft and Magic: The Gathering novels, as well as a critically acclaimed Arthurian trilogy (Mad Merlin, Lancelot du Lethe, and Le Morte d”Avalon) for Tor.
Stoker Award winner Tom Piccirilli, author of ten novels, including The Night Class, A Lower Deep, and Hexes.
Hugo Award and Stoker Award finalist Scott Edelman, whose work has appeared in Amazing Stories, Twilight Zone, and Asimov’s.
Hot new writer Scott Nicholson, whose recent debut novel, The Red Church, is garnering rave reviews and serious award consideration.
And several more authors whose stories regularly appear in Year’s Best collections and on the final ballots for major horror fiction awards, including Mark McLaughlin, Darrell Schweitzer, and Stoker Award winner Steve Eller.
Editor James Lowder previously helmed the successful anthologies Realms of Valor and Realms of Infamy, and is known to readers for his own best-selling dark fantasy novels Knight of the Black Rose and Prince of Lies.
