If you're looking for interesting zombie fiction you can read my two zombie books available at Amazon.com. Titles are Biohazard Redacted Book 1 of the Zombie Apocalypse and Biohazard Redacted Book 2 of the Zombie Apocalypse. These books and my other post apocalyptic books can be seen on the left side of my blog page as well. The link to my blog page is below.
I tend to go for the more realistic read (no zombies/monsters/mutants or super paranormal). Maybe of touch of paranormal, but that's it. I'm like scifigurl, I want to see something beyond the common plots and prefer stories with strong characterization. If a character draws me into the plot, then I'll read it.
I like the ones where you see it as if you were living it, as if the government fu~ed up, and suddenly everything has gone to hell, but as a mere simple citizen you aren't privy to any information and reasons etc just suddenly everything is falling apart. Like the day of the triffids by wyndham or the days after by ballantine. Thats my fave, feels realistic.
For me the cause is not usually the interesting part, I go for something which has a focus on people being forced into a terrible situation and having to adapt to it, I don't mind what that situation is. I generally don't read zombie PA fiction though - I prefer to watch zombies than read about them.
Also, I agree with Matov's opinion on magic or supernatural abilitites - there are always exceptions but I like realism within this genre (happy to read other sci fi and fantasy though).
I totally agree. I don't mind zombie PA fiction as long as the story is good.
In truth for me, what I love about the genre is just raw humanity and survival. Seeing the good, the bad, the indifferent on a gritty stage full of conflict and people just trying to be people and enjoy their lives in the mess of the world.
I Am Legend is my gold standard. I just loved how real it felt, from his frustration to his loneliness to his swings from depression to hope. Just so amazing
Author of Hood Book One of the American Rebirth Series. (coming very, very soon)
