The Mummy Lives!

Our endless fascination with the past is based not only on the impressive remains of ancient monuments and temples, but with the care many cultures—most notably the Egyptian, but others too—devoted to immortalizing their dead. Gaze upon faces of those who died centuries ago—sometimes preserved by accident rather than intent—and experience a wide range of emotions. These enigmatic remains of humanity have inspired creators since the early nineteenth century; literature, film, television, games, and graphic stories all reflect their imaginings. The Mammoth Book of the Mummy presents tales written for the twenty-first century and a few brand-new stories. Some delve into the past, others explore alternative histories, and some bring mummies into our own world. Gasp, sigh, shudder, smile, and occasionally giggle at the magic wrought by these authors who all make the mummy live again.
