Finished "Dead Beat" by Remy Porter, which is set in a small coastal town in the UK. It Felt poorly written, very poorly planned out and contrived. Wouldn't recommend it.

Time for another leap of faith.

The Undead Situation by Eloise J. Knapp is a good read, although it's unavailable at the moment as it's being republished apparently. I got it for free a while ago and the Kindle version was just 99c at the time, so hopefully it will be available again soon.

will watch for it.

Currently reading something a little different, Apartment 16 by Adam Nevill. A Clive Barker-esque ghost story. Quite enjoying it so far.

I loved David Wellingtons Monster series. I'm currently selling two of those on ebay. Great reads.
David Moodys zombie books are great. The Autumn series and also Hater and Dog Blood were good reads.
I also liked The Forest Of Hands and Teeth, and The Dead Tossed Waves. Aimed at younger readers I think, but good nonetheless.
Brian keene has written a few too, I've read two but the names elude me.

I really want to read Flu by Wayne Simmons too. it looks very interesting. Feed by Mira Grant also looks good, I have that in my reading mountain.

I finished reading this not too long ago - some different takes on zombies in it, not bad I thought! Zombie: An Anthology of the Undead-Christopher Golden

Z.A Rechts Morningstar Saga is worth reading, unfortunately there are only two novels as the author died in 2009.

I bought Zombie Apocalypse! at the airport and loved it. Started a little slowly and I was worried that it would be a chore to read but it picked up the pace (and dark humour) about a fifth of the way in. Several writers involved, which was interesting. Loved Kim Newman's cabinet meeting minutes...

Flu

I've only just started it - not usually a zombie reader, but I'm liking this

Thread ressurection..

I'm reading through:

- The Zombie Fallout series (4 so far - similar sort of thing to White Flag of the Dead and Day by Day Armageddon) by Mark Tufo at the moment. It's pretty good if you can get past the jokey nature of the writing.



- Outpost by Adam Baker which is about a 'zombie' type apocalypse as experience by a bunch of roughnecks on an arctic oil rig.

- Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry. This was ok. It was more about zombie hunters and people who live after the zombie apocalypse. Not much is said about what happened to cause it or about the actual event.

I've read everything on this thread so far! Anyone got any other zombie apocalypse suggestions? I might try Autumn by David Moody next.

Cool, thanks for the recommends. I'd forgotten about this thread, and I've not read anything zombie related for a while. Time to pick it up again.

Someone has completed the trilogy (I suspect from notes left by the author)...it's not as good as the first two but does give some closure.

Check Amazon or wiki for more details.

FYI, The Zombie Survival Guide is more of a reference manual, although it does go into extensive detail about the Z virus, which is interesting.

I read them in publication order:
Zombie Survival Guide, then WWZ, but it doesn't matter.

Wasn't really feeling Zombie Survival Guide, might try again someday but really wanted to get stuck into to a story. Started Enders Game instead, Yeah i know its not a zombie book.

John Ringo has just published a Zombie novel "Under a Graveyard Sky"(though the Zombies are actually more 28 days later infected than true Zombies). It's actually a lot of fun and the first in a series.

First 8 chapters here
