This book is a collection of short stories all taking place on the infamous night the dead rose to eat the living in the 1968 horror movie, "Night of the Living Dead." While most stories follow the same basic formula some have a few twists and turns that are really great. While most take place in different areas of the country and do not follow the movie continuity, there is a direct sequel and a story that follows one of the minor characters from the movie and you see things from their point of view. Over all, this is a great read for any George Romero “Dead” fan and a fun addition to the zombie mythos.

This book, and its companion Night of the Living Dead, arrived safely today; many thanks! I like the premise of this one; will see how the different authors handle it!

Later: I've enjoyed many zombie-stories, including zombie-themed anthologies, but I'm always ready for more. Some great entries here, from authors whose work I love. Among my favorites:

Joe R. Lansdale's "Dead Man's Curve": street racers fall foul of the walking dead, in Lansdale's classic violent/dark/funny style.

Mike Carey's "In That Quiet Earth" has a grief-stricken scientist seeking a way to rejoin his zombified beloved; surprisingly sweet, given the context!

"Mercy Kill" by Ryan Brown, a gritty tale of survivors and the price they pay.

Max Brallier's "Snaggletooth," in which a not-very-nice individual takes advantage of the zombie apocalypse - and gets his comeuppance. (Brallier wrote the amusing choose-your-own-path book Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?, for more undead fun!)

"The Day After" by John A. Russo is something of a sequel to the movie, picking up just after the burning of the bodies outside the farmhouse - and following some of the surviving zombies, including Barbara, Johnny, and Karen; I found it entertaining, though having names attached to the shambling corpses was a bit of a waste, as they had no resemblance to their original personalities.

Mira Grant's "You Can Stay All Day" focuses on the effects of the plague on a zookeeper at an amusement park, as she gradually realizes what's happening - and worries about her big-cat charges more than about herself. (Grant's the author of the marvelous "Newsflesh" series, starting with Feed, an excellent addition to the zombie-apocalypse genre.)

Other tales include clever ways to use the walking dead to provide appropriate vengeance, accounts of the infection from the viewpoint of the victims, and some ill-omened attempts to capitalize on the rise of the dead for entertainment purposes. And more!
