Mammoth Books presents Christmas with the Dead by Joe R. Lansdale
Sort order. Oct 10, Adam Light rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Lansdale and zombie fans. I always enjoy reading Joe Lansdale's stories and books. I saw this one and had to grab it, never having heard of it before. I read it on my lunch break today which worked out perfectly. Just the right length. This is a pretty straight-forward zombie short with a little more imagination thrown in than most that I have read. Lansdale's patented turns of phrase are abundant here, there is plenty of action throughout, and I sympathized with the narrator's plight. A nice dash of dark humor contrasted I always enjoy reading Joe Lansdale's stories and books.
A nice dash of dark humor contrasted with the gore effectively. While it could not come close to rousing me like "Tight Little Stitches in a Dead Man's Back", this was still a fun read. Apparently there is a film version in the works as well.

Aug 07, Marvin rated it really liked it Shelves: horror. I am Legend with Christmas trees and presents. Kind of sweet for a Lansdale story.
I hear they are making this into a movie. I can't really see it as a movie but still loved the story. Dec 15, Derek Pennycuff rated it really liked it.

This shouldn't really even count as a book. But it got published as a stand alone Kindle release. I think Lansdale has published stuff of around this same length on his website. He rotates through a new short story every Thursday. If you like Lansdale and you like zombies and you like dogs you'll probably like this. We're not talking high This shouldn't really even count as a book.
We're not talking high brow here. And there's even one scene where I swear a weapon gets knocked away, then we see him use that same weapon, and then we see him pick that weapon up.

It's possible I misread. Or it's possible it's a purposeful edit goof as a homage to the sort of B movie schlock this story emulates. Or it could be a legitimate editing error. Very short but good xmas zombie tale "I am legend" style. Great holiday reading! I usually do not appreciate Zombie, but I always make an exception for Lansdale, and Buffy of course Di solito gli zombi non mi piacciono, ma faccio sempre volentieri un'eccezione per Lansdale e Buffy Nov 30, Ray rated it liked it.
