The list author says: "Writers often use well-known symbols or themes to build a much more interesting premise. In my case, I blurred the line between living and dead to tell a story of self-progression, perseverance, and growth, and what do people say? "It's about zombies" ... well, here is my list of books that aren't really "zombie books" but sometimes get classified that way"
"Neil Gaiman belongs on every series reader's bookshelf. His books are quirky and often genre-crossing, and always worth reading.
"The Graveyard Book" isn't about zombies, but it seems like a horror book (and it does involve a lot of graveyard time, and some killing). In truth, it's scary but also sweet, and suitable for kids. Yes - literature planted at the foot of a tombstone. Read it."
"A zombie list isn't a zombie list without Cluck. It's not really a zombie book at all but it does have a zombie chicken in it, as well as some chicken ghosts, a few chicken ghouls, and one bad-a** rooster.
This has won three awards to date and is sure to please - quirky, fun, and original."
