Top 140 Zombie Books According to Goodreads

August 6, 2015

As a freelance editor, I am privy to several lists of manuscripts that editors do not wish to see. For more than five years, topping those lists is any manuscript with a zombie apocalypse (oh shite!).

However, there are several authors and some of the smaller publishing houses that have bucked this trend, and went ahead and published a zombie apocalypse book. Even some of the smaller indie publishing houses bucked the trend publishing a zombie apocalypse novel.

With the rise of print on demand, Amazon’s Author Central, and Kindle self-publishing services, (among other self-publishing venues) there are several authors doing well bucking the supposed trend, publishing a zombie apocalypse novel. The rise of more self-publishing venues has also seen a few more zombie novels hit the streets, some with a fair amount of success.

Now, granted, success is relevant. How do you define success as an indie author? Sell one book? Sell a thousand books?

Here is a link to the Goodreads Top 140 Zombie Books:

Now dear readers, I have a few questions for you:

  1. How many of these books have you read?
  2. Are there any books that you feel are absent from the list?
  3. Are there any books you feel need to be removed from the list?

    I check in every day or so to see if you have an update. Just wanted to let you know. I’ve been reading Ruth for a couple of years or more.

    • Thanks Scott, I appreciate my long term readers. Sorry I missed last week, working two jobs now so hard to get time to write.
