Aside from the covers being different, the book's content was what it claimed to be - truely comical and hilariously funny. granted - I did not read all the authers, I didn't really have the time to do that. so I read the ones I know already or had heard many good things about.

I wasn't disappointed with any of the stories I read - I was laughing so hard that I got sent to me room for disturbing the peace - lol of a football game.

the only thing with these stories is that they really left me wanting to know more - I wanted to know more about what happened to Zeke - How his sister reacted to his sudden change of appearance, I wanted to know more about Jamie Vegas and her new zombie friends - lol the ghostly cousins that got turned into zombies because they couldn't keep their traps shut and leave good enough alone.
The list gooes on - all of these mini novella's could be turned into full blown stories. although I do think that they would not be able to keep up the level of humour if they did so - so I will sit here stewing in my curiousity and just hope and pray that these characters will show up in future novels.

way to go everyone that contributed to this compilation - you did a wonderful spot-on job and I wish all of you the best in your future endevours

Some good stories, but I don't see how they're funny. They're not terrifying, but some are pretty creepy.
