May 02, The creatures from this book, however, were not undead but actually living beings afflicted with a mutated vaccine that made them look and act like that. May 03, Richard Matheson always said they were vampires but it is debatable. What isn't though is The Passage.

Jun 27, The sub-genre was already too thin to keep spreading it out by differentiating zombie or not zombie by diving into zombie biology. Do you have a degree in zombie biology? Stop with the stupid definition. Zombie is no longer a defining word, it is now a subgenre and should be treated as such. Pointless defining is pointless. Saying someone fail at reading comprehension because they don't agree with you is not a valid counter argument.

My dog shits better argument than you speak. Jul 09, Jul 28, Some of the comments above are quite entertaining. Author says his creations are vampires. Readers come back decades later and say they are Zombies. Today we call ourselves humans. Maybe years from now, our descendants will call us 'fish' since scientists say we came from the primordial ooze.

Monday morning quarterbacking at best that completely misses the point. Vampires at least when they aren't twinkling and sparkling are not Zombies and should not be included on this list. Well, at least that's what I think. For a reader you have absolutely terrible reading comprehension. What I said was that zombie is a definition of a sub-genre. Take 28 days later for example, if someone call it a "zombie movie", which it clearly is, the zombie cock-maggots will get all rustled up and cry "wahhh, its not zombie, wahhh!!!

For a reader you have absolutely terrible reading comprehension In fact, I agree with a good deal of it. As for who cares whether or not books centered around vampires should be included on a list for books featuring Zombies, I'll have to venture the opinion that it's mainly a rhetorical debate, but it indeed is quite amusing watching the back and forth.

Now that I've said my piece, I'll go back to the sidelines and allow this list about Zombie books to be perused by the more intellectually inclined readers, of which, as you say, and as I am more than happy to admit, I am not. I'm just saying arguing semantics is pointless. It's great that you understood what I tried to convey because that's exactly the message I'm trying to send. Dec 03, I really enjoyed these 3.

I think it has more to do with the variety of coverage the books give to the zombie outbreaks, the military aspect, the coolness of the main characters, and the overall eerieness without being too over-the-top. Can anyone suggest more zombie books that are similar in nature to these? These were all pretty good, but in my opinion, not as good as the first 3. Apr 09, I have just added my book Zombie Apocalypse: Combat and Survival to this list.

Multiple story lines converge the father into the series you go. Mark tufo with his "Zombie Fallout series ", really got me in an equally disturbing way.
