In 1968 the world experienced a brand-new kind of terror with the debut of George A. Romero's landmark film Night of the Living Dead. This was something new...and terrifying. Since then, zombies have invaded every aspect of popular culture.
But it all started on that dreadful night in a remote farmhouse.
Nights of the Living Dead returns to that night, to the outbreak, to where it all began.

Best book of 2017

I normally hate story collections because it's always a 50/50 of if you get a good story or not. But this one was simply amazing.

-only for hardcores of the genre-

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Unless your really hardcore into the genre and want to hear Romeros introduction and thoughts about NOTLD (and its not even him narrating his words) then its not really that good.

For me, being hardcore into the genre it was worth it just for the introduction but the stories are not very good and overall its not that good except for collectors I suppose.


What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

Well, I'm not big on anthologies anyhow- And this being a collection of short stories already hurts it for someone like me-

However, the amount of situations and stories that could have come out during the first 48 hours of the outbreak is very intriguing... Especially because this really is "official cannon" of the genre.

And yet I'm halfway through and theres only 1 story that really was any good and captures what I was expecting.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The first narrator sounds like shes trying to do the whole thing in a fake and terrible southern accent- The other narrators (thus far- I'm halfway through) are all decent to good.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes- But for the same reason I'm going to see the next George Romero movie (which is the stupidest plot ive ever heard- Zombies racing cars for rich peoples pleasure)- For the same reason I will see of buy anything that george Romero is a part of, even though he hasnt made a decent zombie flick since 'day' and the recent ones have been some of the worst Ive seen in the genre....

Because Romero is a god for giving us the zombie and for the terror, adventure and theroycrafting (what will I do if this happens) that hass went on in my mind since I first saw NOTLD as a 11 year old boy, on halloween night in the mid 80s...It changed everything...


Any additional comments?

-If youre not a hardcore collector or Romero fanboy- Pass... Its not that good.

However, the intro by Romero and the other guy (who I'm not all that familiar with btw...sorry) are both fantastic (especially the other guys)

Just disappointed Romero didnt narrate his own intro.
