Selections From The Living Dead 2

 “A must for any self respecting zombie completist.” 

—Simon Pegg, Shaun of the Dead

“You don’t have to be a zombie-lover to enjoy this outstanding follow-up to 2008’s The Living Dead. Anthologist extraordinaire Adams has assembled 44 stories that showcase strong writing and imagination. … Readers will hope for many further additions to the series even after the zombie craze passes.” 

Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

“I described The Living Dead as the best collection of zombie fiction stories ever collected—this follow-up anthology is even better.” 

—Paul Goat Allen, Barnes &

“Like its predecessor, The Living Dead 2 truly is one of the great zombie short story collections out there and you are definitely getting a lot of bang for your buck here! Kudos to editor John Joseph Adams for putting together another memorable anthology sure to delight zombie and horror fans everywhere!”

Fatally Yours

“I proclaimed [The Living Dead] the best zombie anthology I’d ever read. Well, there’s a new anthology due in September that actually surpasses The Living Dead–and it’s The Living Dead 2! … There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that The Living Dead 2, and all who contributed to her, will be well-represented across the various genre literature awards over the next year. In the meantime, zombie aficionados should place this publication at the very top of their Want List, above firearms, bottled water, and chainsaws.”
