In Christopher Golden’s latest novel Tin Men, drone warfare is taken to a new extreme: robotic foot soldiers. In it, soldiers are uploaded into robots to stem soldier casualties while maintaining world order. When the power is cut, trapping them inside, they face their greatest test.

Even if you think the living dead are overexposed, Christopher Golden's short story anthology The New Dead delivers so many iterations of the undead trope that even the most jaded zombie naysayer will be impressed. Can you say "Twitter zombies?"
