It all started in 1968 on that dreadful night in a remote farmhouse... the world experienced a brand-new kind of terror with the debut of George A. Romero's landmark film Night of the Living Dead. The newly dead rose to attack the living, not as vampires or werewolves, but as something new and terrifying. Since then, zombies have invaded every aspect of popular culture. Nights of the Living Dead returns to that night when it all began. New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry teamed up with Romero, the godfather of the living dead, to present a collection of all-new tales set during the forty-eight hours of that legendary outbreak. In addition to original stories by Romero and Maberry themselves, this anthology includes stories by some of today's most important writers: Joe R. Lansdale, Mike Carey, Brian Keene, Carrie Ryan, Chuck Wendig, Craig E. Engler, David J. Schow, David Wellington, Isaac Marion, Jay Bonansinga, John A. Russo, John Skipp, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Max Brallier, Mira Grant, Neal and Brenda Shusterman, and Ryan Brown. An instant classic that belongs on the shelves of every horror and sci fi reader.
