Zombie Books to munch on

A Listmania! list by Patrick S. Dorazio "Author of The Dark Trilogy" (Cincinnati, Ohio)
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "The Zombie hits just keep on coming! There are far too many books to list them all with only 40 slots, so I have consolidated series, books by the same author, similar styles (example: all graphic novels are lumped together), etc. So please read the descriptions to see all the different titles listed under each heading. Bon apetite!
For a more complete list of zombie books out in the world, go to www.zombiebooklist.com which is a great compendium of all written works zombie."
Xombies
1.  Xombies by Walter Greatshell

Down the Road: A Zombie Horror Story (Special Edition)
9.  Down the Road: A Zombie Horror Story (Special Edition) by Bowie Ibarra
The list author says:
  "This book and its two sequels very much adhere to the classic Romero zombie setup.  The government and military are domineering overlords who use the zombie apocalypse as an excuse to suppress the surviving populous, giving the reader ample reason to believe that humans are far worse than the undead."

The Rising
10.  The Rising by Brian Keene

Plague of the Dead (The Morningstar Strain)
13.  Plague of the Dead (The Morningstar Strain) by Z. A. Recht
The list author says:
  "Plague of the Dead and its sequel, Thunder and Ashes, deal with the zombie virus on two levels: before you die, when the victims are fast moving, and after they die, when they return to life as slow walkers.  Tragically, the author passed away recently and I'm not sure if the final book in the trilogy will ever be published."

16.  Dying to Live: A Novel of Life Among the Undead by Kim Paffenroth
The list author says:

18.  Roses of Blood on Barbwire Vines by D. L. Snell

Dead in the West
19.  Dead in the West by Joe R. Lansdale
The list author says:
  "Zombie titles of the 80s and 90s were definitely diverse.  This title takes us back to the wild west, while 'I,Zombie' takes us to the future.  'Wet Work' gives us a Black Ops type zombie story and 'Legion of the Dead' has an ancient god raising the dead."

The Words of Their Roaring (Tomes of the Dead)
20.  The Words of Their Roaring (Tomes of the Dead) by Matthew Smith

Every Sigh, the End: A Novel About Zombies
21.  Every Sigh, the End: A Novel About Zombies by Jason S Hornsby

Empire: A Zombie Novel
22.  Empire: A Zombie Novel by David Dunwoody

Deadfreeze
23.  Deadfreeze by Anthony Giangregorio
The list author says:
  "Anthony Giangregorio not only is a prolific independent author but publisher of Living Dead Press.  Far too many books to mention between his own stories and those of the authors under his nameplate.  But just search in Amazon under his name and you will get a massive overview of all the zombie stuff he's involved with."

Eden
24.  Eden by Tony Monchinski
The list author says:
  "A standout amongst self published zombie fiction tales that has been brought into the Permuted Press family.  The author has some real chops when it comes to creating real people that lures you in.  Plenty of gore but the author never forgets that its the human emotions that are the impetus behind his solid story.  The sequel has now dropped."

As The World Dies: The First Days: A Zombie Trilogy
26.  As The World Dies: The First Days: A Zombie Trilogy by Rhiannon Frater
The list author says:
  "Women take the lead in this new and refreshing take on the zombie apocalypse.  The two leads are females but there are plenty of strong characters, male and female, to go around.  This is a trilogy, with each book getting better than the last.  This independent series has now been acquired by Tor and will have a new look soon."

The list author says:
  "This, Zombies 101, The Zombie Handbook, and Zombies: A Field Guide to the Walking Dead are tomes that focus on dealing with zombies, their history, why they exist, etc.  Great guides for the zealous zombie fan.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!
29.  Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! by Seth Grahame-Smith
The list author says:
  "It appears as if this is a start of an entirely new sub-genre, with War of the Worlds, Huckleberry Finn, Robin Hood, and several other classics being re-envisioned with zombies in the story.  It will be interesting to see what other novels get this treatment."

Breathers: A Zombie's Lament
30.  Breathers: A Zombie's Lament by S. G. Browne
The list author says:
  "Romance and zombies...an odd combination, perhaps.  But there are more than just this title out there.  "Love in a Time of Zombies" is another (but the living fall in love in that one), Sunrise, which deals with hope and love in a time of the apocalypse, and there is another title about teenage zombie love...but the name escapes me."

God Of The Dead
31.  God Of The Dead by Max Denno
The list author says:

36.  Het Madden, A Zombie Perspective: Book One: WRATH 2012 by Calvin A. L. Miller II
