There's nothing quite so terrifying as a corpse that moves, a creature that even death can't stop. It's all the worse when the living dead is someone you love...

Dove in the Window by Kara Race-Moore—In 1930's Appalachia, Cecilia McGurk is just beginning to recover from the fact that the first love of her life, Pearl, has died. Then Pearl shows up one night and crawls into bed with her, bemoaning that she can't sleep.

Only Human by Meredith Katz—When Saul learns that his sudden bout of sickness is actually a curse, he's referred to a necromantic specialist. But the ordeal is made moderately better by the cute receptionist, Theo, who is exactly Saul's type—aside from the fact that he's dead.

Lavish are the Undead by B.A. Huntley—It's another day at the gym for Mick, working out and listening to her DJ girlfriend, until she steps outside and finds the world under attack by strange, doll-like creatures—and her girlfriend trapped at the top of a building on the other side of town.

The Eighth Tree by Alex Stitt—Banished to no man's land after an attempt to hide their relationship is mistaken for insurrection, Edward and Daniel swiftly find that a German minefield is the least of their problems, as a strange yellow mist starts bringing dead soldiers back to life.

Orion Shone Right Through by Dmitri Dene—Marcus's career hits a snag when the Stock Exchange is wiped out by zombies. He quickly finds himself amidst an epidemic that feels just like the movies, but the weirdest part may be getting along with the last three people in New York; namely, the one he just divorced.

A Witch in Arkham by Cora Walker—Lexa is going about her daily work of speaking to the dead when she receives a mysterious warning from a deceased former lover. Then the Magi come asking for help, and Lexa has little choice but to agree, and soon finds herself dragged into a much bigger problem than anticipated.

Zoey Loves Zombies by Adele Gardner—Indigo wants to leave, and Zoey wants to stay where they're relatively safe from the undead. In the midst of their argument, tragedy strikes, and Indigo is turned. But Zoey refuses to give up, willing to do anything to keep Indigo at her side.

Noble Pursuit by Helena Maeve—After weeks of erring around the countryside at the mercy of the hordes, Ephram should breathe a sigh of relief when he is rescued by the dashing Lord Delaney. But Delaney hides a secret of his own and his obligations may only serve to put Ephram in greater danger.
