Zombies Zombies everywhere and not a brain to eat!
- Rise Again by Ben Tripp-- Published last December this novel offers a unique premise for how the zombie apocalypse will ultimately take place. Obvious nods in George Romero's direction include the use of Zombies as a social and political critique, Rise Again deserves a place in the Zombie Canon. The novel seems to take on too much but ultimately leaves the reader wanting more.
- World War Z by Max Brooks-- This book will rock your socks off. Complex and all encompassing this Zombie tome really fleshed out a new direction in Zombie literature. Thrilling, chilling and frightening don't read this one too close to bedtime.
- Breathers: A Zombies Lament by S. G. Browne-- Never have I read such an interesting take on Zombie/Breather relations. Unique in its perspective, zombie as hero, it might just make you rethink how you would treat the living dead.
- Walking Dead series by Robert Kirkman-- In a black and white hats off to all things Zombie, Kirkman takes his readers on an epic journey through the end times. Filled with characters from all ends of the spectrum, heroic and cowardly, kind and hurtful, cunning and naive. Also, this series has become a blockbuster hit on the AMC network. Start with The Walking Dead Volume 1: Days Gone By.
