The Best of All Flesh: Zombie Anthology (Paperback)

by James Lowder (Editor)

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Bringing the living dead into stark reality, this anthology reveals the best of undead horror and monstrous zombie tales. Culled from the popular All Flesh Must Be Eaten zombie anthology series, this broad collection of stories proves that no place in the world is safe when the dead rise again. Their shambling hordes flood cities, scour the countryside, and leave no part of history untouched. Ideal for fans of supernatural terror and apocalyptic fiction, this horrific array includes narratives by Tobias Buckell, Scott Edelman, Charles Coleman Finlay, and Tom Piccirelli.

Tthere IS a way to do this in the system. There was an old thread explaining how to do it. I did it, and a few months later, someone posted the book (that otherwise wouldn't have gotten posted as they wouldn't have been able to list it in the system.) It was in beautiful condition!

Here is the link to that thread. Scroll down to Mendy's post #14  and follow it exactly:

ummm... I've done this before and it works but it's the backwards way to do it.  Put your shelf on vacation hold.  Take the ISBN you have and post the book to your shelf.  It almost always kicks the info into the system.  Then I open a new window for PBS and click onto the book title, delete it from my bookshelf in the 1st window and WL it in the 2nd window.  Then I remove myself from vacation hold.  I just did it a week or 2 ago on a new book that was in Amazon's system but not in PBS's yet."

EveDallas said: "Just be sure to do what Mendy said & delete the book before you take yourself off vacation hold. Because I removed the the Vacation Hold first, the book was accidentally moved to be on hold for someone - myself. I ended up having to cancel my own request and re-wish listing it again.  What a headache. It's now logged in my Transaction Archives as a cancelled WL request."

I just did a search on the ISBN and it's in the system now with 2 wishers.

An easier way to do it if it doesn't appear is to wait about 5-10 minutes and then search for it again it should pop up.  I've done it with almost all the books on my WL that I'm #1 for and it's always worked. I did it with the book for Sherry and it came up so I added it to my WL so she could then add it to hers.

Generally, if all I have is an ISBN I add it to my TBR.  If PBS accepts it then I can go to the book's page and put it on my WL.  Sometimes, the data base that PBS uses doesn't have the information yet, but recognizes it as a legitimate ISBN.  In that case it will say so but not accept it to list on the TBR.  In that case you just have to try it every so often until it does recognize it.  If Amazon doesn't have the ISBN then PBS won't either.
