"This list includes science fiction, horror, urban fantasy, apocalyptic fiction, romance, tongue-in-cheek parody, literary fiction, bizarro fiction, and alternate history titles. Zombies are everywhere, my friends, and if the phenomenal popularity of The Walking Dead is any indication, I think they’re here to stay for quite some time.
If you want the crème de la crème of zombie fiction, here’s your list!"

"Most people believe they’d be able to survive the zombie apocalypse, but I know better. I’d be one of the first to go. I’m not a fan of dirt, compasses confuse me, and I’m not someone you should count on in a crisis. I once had a small kitchen fire and my first instinct was to “throw more fire on it.” When the going gets tough, and the tough attempt to eat you, you’re going to need a few books to help you survive."

Women are well-represented in this list. Contains titles by Mira Grant, Sophie Littlefield, Rhiannon Frater, Jessica Meigs, Eloise J. Knapp, Dana Fredsti, and Kristyn Crow.
