Zombie, Ohio: a tale of the undead by Scott Kenemore
No one is safe in a zombie apocalypse… not even a zombie.

When he finds out that the automobile wreck that killed him wasn’t an accident, Peter resolves to solve his own murder.
RESURRECTION! The hungry dead have risen. They shamble down the street. They hide in back yards, car lots, shopping malls. They devour neighbors, dogs and police officers. And they are here to stay. The real question is, what are you going to do about it? How will you survive? HOW WILL THE WORLD CHANGE WHEN THE DEAD BEGIN TO RISE? Stoker-award-winning author Christopher Golden has assembled an original anthology of never-before-published zombie stories from an eclectic array of today’s hottest writers.
