Signed Illustrated book plate by Brian Keen with this copy.
REVIEW: Two-time Stoker-winner Keene includes 19 stories, many of which were previously only available in limited edition collections. His trademark zombies appear in five tales linked to 2003's The Rising, as well as in The Resurrection and the Life, which features an undead Lazarus. When Keene stops relying so heavily on carnage, he pens standouts like An Appointment Kept, which concludes with a clever twist, and the powerful, dread-inducing Stone Tears. Fans will especially appreciate Tequila's Sunrise, a fable about the origin of tequila that sneakily touches on all of Keene's creations, and chatty afterwords offering insight into his creative process. Those new to Keene or bored of zombies will find less to love, but any horror reader will get some delightful scares.-- Publishers Weekly.
