I've just got Zombie Fallout by Mark Tufo from the Kindle store. Looks like there are more in the series.
It's next on my reading list.

With Amazon now offering so many Indy freebies, and many of them zombie stories, those of us who love zombies find ourselves in


Zombie Heaven

Sounds like a load of rot to me Dr.Drib

(as a side note, did I see that we have yet ANOTHER part of the ResidentEvil coming out on the big-screen?)

The Mark Tufo books are very entertaining, not the greatest literary works but they keep pulling you in. Highly recommended.

Second that! "World War Z" was really well written.

Really liked "The Passage” by Justin Cronin too, but these don't feature the usual zombies.

Another vote for World War Z here, but I bought the audiobook. I think I enjoyed it more than I would have in print, because they hired different actors (like Mark Hamill and Henry Rollins) to read each story, which ended up making it sound like a radio documentary about a zombie apocalypse.

The Passage is great, but it's a vampire novel, not zombies. They're mindless, zombie-esque vampires, but not zombies in the Romero sense.

But as long as we're including vampires, I might recommend the novella "I Am Legend" by Richard Matheson. There's a story (dunno if it's true or not) that Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" actually started as an adaptation of "I Am Legend" but they couldn't get the rights to the book. Most of the conventions of zombie movies owe a great deal to "I Am Legend," just as much if not more than Romero's movies.

Handling the Undead by John Ajvide Lindqvist.

I haven't read it myself so I can't comment on quality but it may not come up in a casual search on zombie books so I thought I'd list it here.

I enjoyed The Infection by Craig Delouie and I'm going to look into Resurrection.

I read this a while back. It was rather tame for a zombie story and I found it rather subtle and emotionally charged and quite sad in places. It was a bit of a refreshing change from the "usual" zombie tales.
