CBR III Review #111: Z: Zombie Stories by Catherynne M. Valente

– Family Business by Jonathan Mayberry
– The Wrong Grave by Kelly Link

I bolded the ones I highly suggest reading.  I skipped a few myself but I have this problem with every short story anthology I ever pick up.  I really enjoyed the ones I suggested, but a really great zombie novel is one about the fall of society or a society trying to rebuild itself and a short story really can not encompass all the things I really enjoy about the genre.
