Another great collection of zombie shorts this time centered around Canada and it's patchwork of peopleThe diversity of stories was probably the best I've read yet though it's a relatively small collection there are stories here from a multitude of cultural backgrounds viewpoints and even genres to an extent There were a couple of real standouts; And All the Fathomless Crowds by Ada Hoffman was spectacular in it's unusual universe For something so different it managed to speak to some bond of the living that transcends race language even sometimes so far as speciesRat Patrol by Kevin Cockle was beautifully written and got so much story into a very small space I'm eager to check out the rest of his work And finally The Dead of Winter by Brian Dolton did an amazing job of writing in three different voices and having them all sound distinct; the story itself was great tooA great collection for anyone who likes zombie fiction it's a small collection but very high uality
