Two new books

We now interrupt Lisa's self-imposed cyber-exile to announce two cool new books:

The Living Dead is now available for order. This fabulous zombie anthology includes fiction by the likes of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Neil Gaiman, Poppy Z. Brite, and some chick named Morton. Editor John Joseph Adams reports that pre-orders for the book ran in excess of 16,000, which I think is a pretty good number for a horror anthology these days.

Book of Lists: Horror is also now available. This thing is beyond compulsively readable - it's crack for horror lovers. Del Howison tells me that HarperCollins reported the biggest advance orders for this of any of the Book of Lists titles, so again it's good news for horror. I've got two-and-a-half lists inside, although only one bears my name - the other two have initials. A gold star to anyone who finds them all.
