Book review: Better Off Undead
Today's book review is Better Off Undead, edited by Martin H. Greenberg and Daniel M. Hoyt.

I picked this up on an odd whim at a recent con.  Later, I didn't actually remember what had made me so sure that I should get it, but I read a couple of stories.  Then I read a couple of novels, and eventually got back to it.  Generally good stories; nothing I hated, and no writing bad enough to put me off.  I don't like true horror; if it actually grosses me out or scares me, I don't want to read it.  But I like stories about people who aren't human.  This book manages to have ghosts, zombies, and even a mummy that are engaging, as well as the vampires that I was probably expecting more of when I bought the book.  But I don't think any of these stories are going to stay with me very long.

7 out of 10.
