I really love zombie stories, and to have many different stories by different authors is always awesome to read. I did like the setting of the zombies as far as they weren't in America.  This anthology wasn't the best for me. Right off the bat the first story reminded me of an episode from The Walking Dead. So I was a bit concerned on the rest of the stories and where they were going to go. They all seemed okay though I have to say my two favorite stories out of it all was Game Over by Kyle M. Scott, really was not expecting that turn of events. I kind of had my mouth opened at the end. 
Another one I really enjoyed was Visiting Time by Andrew Lennon old people and zombies you just gotta wonder what kind of mix that would create and this author made it happen.

If you are looking to get a taste of new authors and how they weave British zombies into a story then check this out.
