    This was my first foray into zombie fiction and I found it quite enjoyable, once I overcame the creepy factor As I have noted before, short stories are not my favourite form of fiction, but I found they worked well for this genre.There was interesting diversity in this volume I found it interesting how so many current concerns could be addressed through the zombie Environmental concerns the Tar Oil sands feature in one story for example Or the dilemma posed when zombies attack your marijua This was my first foray into zombie fiction and I found it quite enjoyable, once I overcame the creepy factor As I have noted before, short stories are not my favourite form of fiction, but I found they worked well for this genre.There was interesting diversity in this volume I found it interesting how so many current concerns could be addressed through the zombie Environmental concerns the Tar Oil sands feature in one story for example Or the dilemma posed when zombies attack your marijuana grow op do you call the cops or not For some reason, I found the stories based on aboriginal mythology to be the most creepy I m still analyzing why that is so but they definitely seemed like the scariest ones to tell around a camp fire

    A review of Dead North Canadian Zombie Fiction, edited by Silvia Moreno Garcia Exile Editions, 2013 By Derek Newman StilleIn American zombie movies, Canada is a place of escape, a place to run to in the event of a zombie apocalypse to escape from the ravening hoards I am not certain what sort of magical barrier our country s border has, or whether perhaps zombies just really don t like winter, or perhaps zombies are threatened by public health care, but somehow the Canadian landscape is seen A review of Dead North Canadian Zombie Fiction, edited by Silvia Moreno Garcia Exile Editions, 2013 By Derek Newman StilleIn American zombie movies, Canada is a place of escape, a place to run to in the event of a zombie apocalypse to escape from the ravening hoards I am not certain what sort of magical barrier our country s border has, or whether perhaps zombies just really don t like winter, or perhaps zombies are threatened by public health care, but somehow the Canadian landscape is seen as anathema to the zombie apocalypse Dead North tackles that notion of the zombified Canadian landscape and rustles up our dead to wander in search of Canadian flesh adding to the BODY of literature.Like the flesh of the creatures in its pages, the stories in this collection are morally grey, defying the easy morality of most zombie movies and the Us Them dichotomy that often shapes the zombie genre and allows for the killing of zombified human beings without guilt Instead, these zombie stories play with the notion of Us versus Them, breaking down barriers and complicating the possibility of distancing ourselves from the figure of the zombie The zombie is intimately connected with humanity and these stories question whether it is the zombie who is the monster or the human who hunts them The zombies in this volume make the normally straight forward ascription of humans as heroes and zombies as villains complicated, slippery, challenging.Dead North brings zombies into Canada, but does so with a sense of play with the tropes of the genre, challenging traditional patterns of zombie apocalypse literature and film These zombies are issue laden, exploring notions of environmentalism, history, colonialism, protest culture, technological relationships to human beings, capitalism, aging, sexuality, and diversity These zombies present a mosaic of the dead, a landscape of multiplicity in the types of rotting flesh.Zombies have something in common with the North cold, blanched and they take the notion of a biting chill literally You can explore a few reviews of the individual short stories in this volume at outabout Dead North Canadian Zombie Fiction at

    Another great collection of zombie shorts, this time centered around Canada and it s patchwork of people.The diversity of stories was probably the best I ve read yet though it s a relatively small collection, there are stories here from a multitude of cultural backgrounds, viewpoints, and even genres to an extent There were a couple of real standouts And All the Fathomless Crowds by Ada Hoffman was spectacular in it s unusual universe For something so different it managed to speak to some b Another great collection of zombie shorts, this time centered around Canada and it s patchwork of people.The diversity of stories was probably the best I ve read yet though it s a relatively small collection, there are stories here from a multitude of cultural backgrounds, viewpoints, and even genres to an extent There were a couple of real standouts And All the Fathomless Crowds by Ada Hoffman was spectacular in it s unusual universe For something so different it managed to speak to some bond of the living that transcends race, language even sometimes so far as species.Rat Patrol by Kevin Cockle was beautifully written and got so much story into a very small space I m eager to check out the rest of his work And finally The Dead of Winter by Brian Dolton did an amazing job of writing in three different voices and having them all sound distinct the story itself was great too.A great collection for anyone who likes zombie fiction it s a small collection but very high quality

    It seems like the majority of zombie fiction is set in the States, and whenever I see a movie about zombies, or read zombie stories, I wonder What s happening in Canada This book answers that question through a collection of short stories about zombies all set in Canada The anthology starts off with a bang easily the best story in the entire book is the first one, The Herd by Tyler Keevil The rest of the book is hit and miss, but the hits are great, and the misses are still readable T It seems like the majority of zombie fiction is set in the States, and whenever I see a movie about zombies, or read zombie stories, I wonder What s happening in Canada This book answers that question through a collection of short stories about zombies all set in Canada The anthology starts off with a bang easily the best story in the entire book is the first one, The Herd by Tyler Keevil The rest of the book is hit and miss, but the hits are great, and the misses are still readable The stories are weird, including a corpse in a sex show, a woman who comes back from the dead to warn people about anorexia, and zombie cows that eat Montreal There s even a story set in Saskatchewan, The Food Truck of the Zombie Apocalypse I think the people who would enjoy this book already know who they are, they just have to find out it exists

    A great collection of zombie fiction that just happens to also be Canadian zombie fiction I was really impressed by the quality of the stories in the collection and on the unique approach that many of the stories took to the zombie lore There were a number of stories that were presented from a native viewpoint as well Well worth the read

  7. Tracy Tracy says:

    I have to say I found this book and the stories varied, and some of the stories brought in stories from Native and Inuit culture Dead North was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Zombie Fiction, and especially those who are Canadian and love Zombie Fiction It was great to read a story with my city in Go Team Canadian Zombies

  8. Meg Meg says:

    yeeeah zombies with thematic collections like these I usually find varied quality but I liked pretty much all of these the ones with snow were my fav tho.

  9. Maggie Gordon Maggie Gordon says:

    Canadian zombie stories Who doesn t like that set up The Canadian wilderness is a perfect setting for zombies, and I am always down for stories in my home country Additionally, this is a strong collection with some truly chilling entries Even if you re feeling sick of zombie stories, this one is worth a read Poutine makes an appearance And there s a lot of Indigenous mythological influence.

    I love zombie fiction so when I happened across this collection in a Winnipeg bookstore, I was excited that each story was set in Canada The first, The Herd, started the book off strong It had a couple of layers that surprised and was sufficiently gory to set a dark tone Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there The rest tried too hard to be literary or force fit circumstances There were plenty of nods to First Nations people but those stories drifted into the vaguely mystical and lost I love zombie fiction so when I happened across this collection in a Winnipeg bookstore, I was excited that each story was set in Canada The first, The Herd, started the book off strong It had a couple of layers that surprised and was sufficiently gory to set a dark tone Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there The rest tried too hard to be literary or force fit circumstances There were plenty of nods to First Nations people but those stories drifted into the vaguely mystical and lost me along the way Ground Zero and Kezzie of Babylon were the two next best Overall, I was disappointed with the premises and with the locales chosen This should have been farentertaining
