HELL HATH NO FURY… Edited by T.W. Brown
2012 May December Publications
HELL HATH NO FURY… is an amazing collection of zombie stories, all written by women.
Some of my favorite stories include “Pieces” by Rebecca Snow, a heartbreaking story about the dead coming back to deal with unfinished business, and one woman’s attempt to show her past lovers how they broke her heart; “Waking the Dead” by Chantal Boudreau, an effectively creepy story about coffee beans obtained on the black market from Haiti so a local coffee shop can compete with big chains moving in; “Sliding Into Second” by Elsa M. Carruthers, a distinctively scary tale about a sexually transmitted disease turning its victims into zombies; and “The Petitioners” by Rebecca Lloyd, a darkly funny yet cautionary story about zombies showing up at the offices of a greedy and oblivious governor with paperwork in hand to get their benefits.
The stories in HELL HATH NO FURY… are off-beat and original, with a unique perspective from the female authors who penned them. The artwork and story intros are a nice touch. This anthology proves that women are just as capable of writing horror as their male counterparts. All of the stories are entertaining and if you’re a zombie fan, you will love them.
