    Available at DriveThruFictioncom The Hungry DeadSelected Edited by Lester Smith146 pages Popcorn Press In a tribute to the speed at which the publishing industry is changing these days The Hungry Dead is the first collection that I'm aware of at least that purports to have been solicited edited collected and at the printer within one month The fact that the solicitation process took place at least partly online may account for some of that speedThe Hungry Dead is a collection of poetry and short stories that mostly hovers around the title's stated theme The excellent and evocative cover image shows a slightly decayed yet no less well turned out young woman a plate of brains in front of her gold plated knife and fork in hand She's daintily hoisting a forkful lips parted in anticipation It sets just the right tone for the collection By way of full disclosure I would add that a number of contributors to The Hungry Dead including the publisher are friends of mine so take that for what it's worthOf the fiction several pieces are standouts I readily devoured Stephen D Sullivan's Tricks Treats Exploring the origins of Halowe'en legends it provides a creeping chill to freeze the blood J Robert King's Unlife on the Mississippi brings humor and a clever concept to a rustic American vampire tale A Backwoods young man living in the Mississippi basin near Hannibal Missouri discovers he's suddenly become a vampire He soon learns the how of it and realizes the old adage that with great power comes great responsibility Who knew it was so easy to create vampires?Jack Lehman's Tell Tale Camera puts a new spin on Poe's old classic the end result being an excellent palette cleanser though it veers from the overall theme a bit Also clever and all too brief was David Lee Summers' City Project about vampire contractors and how the permissions needed to work on structures can backfire sometimesDespite that I freely admit poetry is not my favorite form of expression there was much in this collection to savor even for a cultural troglodyte like myself Lyn CA Gardner's satisfying Salvaging The Monitor brings to mind those souls lost at sea in battle An ominous last line hints at something I've long wondered is the search for knowledge of the past worth disturbing the dead? The eerie poem Throat also by Ms Gardner suggests that some family bonds are better broken when death separates us Lester Smith's Sudden Death is a tasty bit of poetry about a group of recently risen dead who wander onto an ice rink in search of sustenance A hockey team happens to be at practice and they don't fully appreciate this band of spectators on their ice It's not often the word Zamboni appears in any literature but Mr Smith works it in here to humorous effectGuess Who's Coming To Dinner by David C Kopaska Merkel is a deliciously subtle work that suggests a murderous wife and her lover and her husband's revenge Short but very effective it's a chilling story with just enough use of regional dialect to hint at an Appalachian or Southern locationSome Have A Taste is not what one expects on first glimpsing the title and it's thoughtfulness is a welcome and appetizing surprise Written by Sarah Busse it describes spirits that are a bit out of the ordinary Both this and Guess Who's Coming To Dinner stuck me as among the thoughtful and thought provoking poetry pieces in this volumeLastly I would mention two poems by Robert Borski Blood Wallah and Rebranding The first will call to mind vampires with rarefied tastes particularly to fans of classic vampire lore The second also brings vampires to mind this time as a lecture from a veteran blood sucker to a recent sueamish member of their peculiar fraternity Both are clever and entertaining and both fit the theme perfectly Like all anthologies this one is no less a mixed bag though I can't actually say there were any bad works here only that some were striking and thought provoking to me than others At 999 for a print copy from your favorite local bookstore or as 99 cent download from DriveThruFictioncom The Hungry Dead is cheap and well worth picking up for horror fans of all stripes There is very little here that will challenge the reader unduly and a fair amount of reward to be had from its consumptionRating Four out of Five Stars
