Zombie Jamboree opens with

New York City’s first zombie on record walked onto the train platform at Queens Plaza at 6:43 in the morning. Nobody noticed the zombie for one reason: it was a fresh zombie, and thus indistinguishable from the rest of the commuters shambling onto the platform during rush hour.

Heh. Yeah. I had fun.
And Mile High Murder is the story of a murderer running around an airplane, stalking his prey. Very Alfred Hitchcock.
I recommend Lyonesse Volume 1. Do try it.
