"Chapter Six" by Stephen Graham Jones - An anthropology professor and his student tag along behind a zombie horde and cannibalize its leavings while discussing theories of human evolution. The professor believes zombies locate their victims from the vibrations through hard surfaces like asphalt. They come across a baby that starts to cry in the middle of the highway and the professor knells on it to kill it. One of the zombie stragglers from the horde turns back and the student makes quick work of it. The student admits to the professor his theory was correct and offers him the zombie's infected ulna which transforms him into a zombie. The student checks on the infant in the backpack and discovers it is a girl, not quite dead. He names her "Eve" and heads off the highway into the woods.
