Eight tales of zombieism and zombification from one of the freshest new voices writing in dark fiction. Aaron J. French, editor of The Shadow of the Unknown and Monk Punk, utilizes a wide range of emotions, situations, and styles to bring to life the world of the living dead in unusual new ways. Open these pages and enter into French's sinister realm, where the dead are ever present, and the soil is always ... fresh.
"Aaron J. French's stories caught me by surprise. He has a lyrical touch that lulls you in and then stabs you in the eye with a sharp stick. Aaron J. French is a writer to watch, and his collection Up From Soil Fresh is a great place to see the range of his talent."--Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and The Savage Dead.
"Aaron J. French has already proven himself to be a great new editor in the last few years. With his new collection, Up From Soil Fresh, he shows everybody he's also a great up-and-coming writer. Highly recommended!"--James R. Beach, Editor-in-Chief, Dark Discoveries magazine.
