Reviews for Nights of the Living Dead
AudioFile: Excellent review of the audiobook for Nights of the Living Dead!
"While horror fans will find plenty to love here, this audiobook is written by and intended for fans of George A. Romero's seminal 1968 film NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Introductions written and read by Romero and Maberry, respectively, set the scene, providing sensational insight into the film and its wide-reaching impact. Each of the stories explores the mysteries and the gruesome realities of a sudden zombie rising and the lives of those caught in their sights. The full cast of narrators captures the dread and shock listeners might well expect, but they aren't afraid to explore the humor, heart, and humanity present in each story as well, making for a collection that is both chilling and oddly charming."

Library Journal: In 1968, director Romero's Night of the Living Dead, which depicted 48 hours of a zombie outbreak, took the movie world by storm. Here, author Maberry (Patient Zero) and Romero bring us back to those two days of the newly risen dead with this anthology of 19 tales. Along with original stories by both men, there are entries such as Joe R. Lansdale's "Dead Man's Curve," in which a brother and sister come face to face with the undead during a drag race, and Mira Grant's "You Can Stay All Day," about a young zookeeper. All of these stories highlight the fear, darkness, hope, and humor facing the living dead can bring. VERDICT Zombie fiction fans can't get enough of their favorite monsters, but this masterly collection of tales from some of today's greatest speculative writers will sate their appetite—for a while.
HorrorTalk: "This collection is a celebration of the man and the film that started it all, but also a recognition of everything that came after, of every movie and comic and novel. This is a celebration of horror and the careers that had their start after seeing the classic film. Simply put, if you’re a fan of horror, this has to be on your shelves."
