The news that humanity had been dreading for ages had come true. Zombies are real. Worst of all, we created them. The apocalypse was upon us, and every man, woman and child had to answer a simple question of themselves: “What do we do now?” For a group of neighbors in the Chicago suburbs of Northern Indiana, it was “work together or die”...and figure out how to live on top of oil storage tanks to keep the zombies at bay. For the Biological Emergency Response Teams in New York City, it was “how long can we fight off the infected before it's too late” . . .as well as having to fight other groups all out to claim a dwindling stock of supplies and safety. And for a group of cheerleaders, it was about the end of their world. And about what happens when you get a group of physically fit young women really, really angry.
Featuring original stories from some of the brightest stars in the science fiction universe: John Ringo; Eric Flint, John Scalzi & Dave Klecha, Sarah A. Hoyt, Jody Lynn Nye, Michael Z. Williamson, Kacey Ezella—cheerleading coach, veteran, and helicopter pilot—and more.

About Black Tide Rising:
"Set in Ringo’s “Black Tide Rising” zombie apocalypse universe, these 12 stories by Eric Flint, John Scalzi and Dave Klecha, Sarah A. Hoyt, Jody Lynn Nye, Michael Z. Williamson, and other authors ponder events that might arise when humans discover that zombies are real. Emotions outweigh common sense, as one woman searches for the zombie who killed her family. When the infected reach a tipping point in a Denver hospital in Hoyt’s story, a group of medical workers and patients must decide if “Do No Harm” actually applies. Williamson’s “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Grandpa?” shows what happens when a family’s eccentric doomsayer patriarch is correct. In Mike Massa’s “Battle of the BERTs,” competing Biological Emergency Response Teams in New York ascend as the new mafia—with the infected as their trade. And finally, Ringo’s “The Meaning of Freedom” has experts around the world determining that a large percentage of the infected are no longer carriers but survivors. VERDICT This anthology broadens Ringo’s Black Tide world, serving up doses of humanity amid the ravenous afflicted. Comedy has a place in this harsh reality, and these stories stir adventure and emotion at a frantic clip throughout. Zombie fiction fans will be thrilled."—**KC**
About the Black Tide Rising Series:
“Not only has Ringo found a mostly unexplored corner of the zombie landscape, he's using the zombie frame to tackle a broader theme: the collapse and rebirth of civilization. The zombie scenes are exciting, sure, but its the human story that keeps us involved. A fine series.”—*Booklist*
