When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth!

From White Zombie to Dawn of the Dead, Resident Evil to World War Z, zombies have invaded popular culture, becoming the monsters that best express the fears and anxieties of the modern west.

Gathering together the best zombie literature of the last three decades from many of today's most renowned authors of fantasy, speculative fiction, and horror, including Stephen King, Harlan Ellison, Robert Silverberg, George R. R. Martin, Clive Barker, Poppy Z. Brite, Neil Gaiman, Joe Hill, Laurell K. Hamilton, and Joe R. Lansdale, The Living Dead covers the broad spectrum of zombie short fiction.

The incredible conclusion to the trilogy that began with the Hugo Award-winning The Fifth Season · Shortlisted for the Hugo, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards · A New York Times Notable Book · The inaugural Wired.com book club pick The Moon will soon return. Whether this heralds the destruction of humankind or something worse will depend on two women. Essun has inherited the phenomenal power of Alabaster Tenring. With it, she hopes to find her daughter Nassun and forge a world in which every outcast child can grow up safe. For Nassun, her mother's mastery of the Obelisk Gate comes too late. She has seen the evil of the world, and accepted what her mother will not admit: that sometimes what is corrupt cannot be cleansed, only destroyed.

Kendra Fortmeyer
Authors:

'Dazzling!' Kelly LinkMorgan Stone was born with a hole in her middle. A perfectly smooth patch of nothing where a something should be. After seventeen years of fear and shame, doctors and nurses, 'peculiar' not 'perfect', she has had enough of hiding. One night, among a sea of bodies and lost in a moment of blissful abandon, she finally bares all. A few photos uploaded to social media is all it takes to create a media frenzy. Overnight, Morgan becomes #holegirl. And then she meets a boy who is literally her perfect match. They could be each other's cure. But can he truly make her 'whole'? Feisty, feminist and downright different, Hole in the Middle is the story of what happens when a girl who is anything but 'normal' confronts a world obsessed with body image and celebrity. 'Kendra Fortmeyer's debut is more heart than holes, creatively brilliant, wacky and wise. An author to watch!' Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock, author of the Carnegie Medal-shortlisted The Smell of Other People's Houses
