It's not such a bad thing to be labeled a "literary horror writer," but to describe the stories in 20th Century Ghosts as strictly "horror" or "supernatural" would be patently inaccurate. Stories like "Better Than Home" and "The Widow's Breakfast" seemingly veer toward the supernatural or weird but are ultimately character sketches of two very different families. "You Will Hear the Locust Sing" is a great Kafka-Goes-B-Movie take on revenge. "Best New Horror" is a story that (sort of) gives itself away as it nears the climax yet you have to keep going because you can't believe that you're reading a story this good, this darkly comic, this daring. There's the disturbing and incestuous "My Father's Mask" and a twist on the superhero theme in "The Cape." And I'll bet good money that you won't read a story more touching than "Bobby Conroy Comes Back From the Dead" for a good long while. Or at least not one that uses the filming of George Romero's Dawn of the Dead as back drop. This is a short story collection that will have you staying up late -- and pulling the covers over your head when you turn off the lights.

Max Brooks travels to all corners of the planet interviewing the men, women, and children that came face-to-face with the undead in the Zombie War, our first truly global war. World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War documents these brutally honest and vivid experiences, testing the courage of the reader as we are forced to consider how close humanity can come to extinction. As we battle forces never before conceived as possible, this novel is a testament to the resiliance of the human spirit and our will to survive. ~ Reviewed by Kim Potter
