Zombie anthologies are a time a dozen nowadays but in the 80s this book was Da Bomb. The premise was to write short fiction based on what happened after George Romero's The Night of The Living Dead. The authors had a field day with this. Most of them go for dark comedy laced with splatter-punk horror. Best stories? Stephen King's "Home Delivery". Joe R. Lansdale's "On the Far side of the Cadillac Desert With Dead Folks", Edward Bryant's "A Sad Last Love at the Diner of the Damned", and Robert McCammon's "Eat Me". May be a little hard to find but well worth hunting for if you're a zombie fan.
