21st Century Dead: Contents

Todd Jepperson

Coming tomorrow, McMillan books and award winning editor Christopher Golden bring us 21st Century Dead; a follow up to the “eclectic” zombie anthology The New Dead which was released in February of 2010. This time around, zombie fans can expect more of the same high quality content that earned Golden the Stoker award and an induction into the Horror Writer’s Association. The lineup of authors contributing to this anthology includes names such as S.G. Browne, Jonathan Maberry, Brian Keene, and Orson Scott Card; but, also has a list of brand new and relatively newer editions, such as Stephanie Crawford and Amber Benson. Very cool to note is that the table of contents lists quite a few female authors, which our genre seems to have a shortage of. Check out the complete list of contributors and their respective works below:

“Zombies Are Good For You: An Introduction” by Christopher Golden

“Biters” by Mark Morris
