    Default Zombie Books

    My very favorite sub genre. Here is my list of favorites. What have I missed that I have to check out?

    Patient Zero - Jonathen Maberry (Love the entire Ledger Series, but this one is still the best)

    Sawkill - Matt Fitzgerald (The Silver Tower is excellent too. These are on Kindle)

    Cell - Stephen King (Hate the end, love the book)

    Feed - Mira Grant (The audio book version is terrible, just read it.)

    World War Z - Max Brooks (The Audiobook is great even though it's abridged. I still have to read the whole thing)

    I read one, I think they are called "Blood Enriched Classics". One I read is called The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn & Zombie Jim...wasn't blown away but I enjoyed the telling.
    There's others: I am Scrooge: A Zombie Story for Christmas, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Undead, The Undead World of Oz...and others.

    Resurrection: A Zombie Epic by Tim Curran

    It's a small press endeavor, and the writing's kind of mediocre, but it's pretty atmospheric and wide in it's scope. It also clocks in at nearly 1,000 pages.

    You might want to check out 'Handling The Undead' by John Ajvide Lindquist. He's the author of 'Let The Right One In' better known as 'Let Me In'. It's a somewhat different spin on the zombie mythos.

    If you're a big zombie fan but haven't read The Walking Dead, that should probably be very high on your list of potential acquisitions.

    I, Zombie by Hugh Howey is an excellent story and a must-read for all zombie lovers.

    I love zombies, but ironically I haven't read a ton of zombie lit. Seen a lot of movies, though. Seems like I've read more of the redneck cannibal genre than anything. If you wanted to know about that genre than I could certainly tell you.
