Dark Delicacies of the Dead Review

Rick Pickman’s Dark Delicacies of the Dead tells the story of the biggest signing in the history of Dark Delicacies and the events that transpired there.

It turns into a fight for survival against the zombie horde with Del Howison at the helm, dishing out flesh eaters alongside other creatures of the night.

Delivering laughs through satire on author personalities and horror fans themselves. It was even better when some of the people barricaded inside the store turn out to be supernatural beings themselves, including a werewolf author and a vampire writer.

Being a horror fan, I was pleased most with the ending when Del admits that they (authors, artists, editors, directors, and actors of the horror genre) could be the only survivors of this little zombie uprising.

Dark Delicacies of the Dead was much more horror humor, which was a nice change of pace from the other short stories. It might be the favored short story from this volume of Dark Delicacies, but I have yet to finish the anthology.
