J. M. Lassen
When the zombie apocalypse comes, it's not just those crusty old folks who will struggle against the undead, it's the young people. What happens when you come of age during the zombie apocalypse? Z: Zombie Stories has the answer to that question.Z: Zombie Stories gathers together some of the hottest zombie fiction of the last two decades, from authors including Kelly Link, Jonathan Maberry, and Catherynne M. Valente. These stories focus on those who will inherit a world overrun with the living dead: a young man who takes up the family business of dealing with the undead, a girl struggling with her abusive father...who has become a zombie, a poet who digs up the wrong grave, and a Viking maiden imprisoned with the living dead...Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for readers interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and supernatural), and much more.

Profile Picture

Z: Zombie Stories is a collection of short stories that revolve around zombies. Each story takes place in a different world created by the story's author, so zombies in one story may have emotions while those in another story are soulless, heartless creatures. The stories also have varying points of view. Some are narrated by zombies, and some are narrated by outsiders. All of the narrators are teens or young adults, so the stories are easy to relate to. My favorite story from the book follows a boy as he learns that being a zombie bounty hunter is not all fun and games.
