The Living Dead edited by John Joseph AdamsThe Living Dead is a paperbook anthology edited by John Joseph Adams. Here’s the premise from the book’s introduction:

“Most of the stories in this book are either inspired by Romero’s ‘unholy trilogy’—Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Day of the Dead—or are a reaction to it.”

There are 34 stories in the anthology. Three are currently available in audio form from Pseudopod and WBAI 99.5 FM’s Hour Of The Wolf (there are two different readings of the David Barr Kirtley story BTW).
