Cover, Synopsis & TOC: “Dead North” edited by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Silvia Moreno-Garcia has just revealed more disturbingly awesome cover art, this time for an upcoming anthology Dead North, due in stores on October 1. The artwork is by Simon Siwak.

Here’s the synopsis:

In Canada, the dead won’t lie quietly. After the apocalypse, a lone human chases zombies across an icy landscape. Whales return from the depths to haunt the southern coast of Labrador. Running a marijuana grow-op operation in British Columbia is made more difficult when the dead attack. A corpse is turned into a flesh puppet and forms part of a depraved sex show.

This enjoyable and rollicking ride of an anthology that contains – among the 20 all-but-three new stories – a broad spectrum of the undead, from Romero-style corpses to those zombies inspired by Canadian Aboriginal mythology, and more from coast to coast, all shambling against the back- ground of the Great White North.
