- Crime & Thriller
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 dead rose to attack the living, not as vampires or werewolves, but as something modern 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, some of today’s most important writers have contributed short stories to this anthology, including Joe R. Lansdale, Mike Carey, Brian Keene, Carrie Ryan and many more. Nights of the Living Dead is an instant classic that belongs on the shelves of every horror and sci-fi reader.
‘Night of the Living Dead held up a mirror to the chaos, complexity, and conflict that defines humanity in crisis’ Max Brooks, bestselling author of World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide
‘There would be no Walking Dead, Resident Evil, World War Z, Zombieland, etc. without Romero and his immeasurable contributions to the genre’ Tony Timpone, Editor Emeritus, Fangoria
