Yes, I have. I've read Pandora's Star, Judas Unchanined, The Night's Dawn Trilogy, the first of the Void Books and I have the second one about half way finished.

When I first got my Kindle, The Night's Dawn Trilogy was available as one download for about $4.99. I see that it is no longer available.

Not sure why Amazon doesn't have it for the US right now, I found other sites that sell it in Epub format. Just have to wait, I guess.

Is that what is here on the kindle? I am thinking it might be - because I always thought Molly Ringwald and Gary Sinise's baby was theirs - and reading it it wasn't - it was another guys.

Mary, you can't go wrong reading it. I have only read The Stand and one other of his, so I too don't count myself an official fan. Make sure you get the extended version. I even re-watched the mini-series based on it fairly recently.

The Postman by David Brin. Don't worry, there is very little resemblance to the Costner movie.

The movie didn't show ALL the detail of the book. You got much more detail on Franny's [Molly Ringwald] pregnancy along with arguments with her mother about it. This was even before the Extended version came out.

I also recommend 'Amsterdam 2012'.

I agree with that one, James!

It's funny, I actually recommended the book to Clint Eastwood as something he might star in...just as a fan, I don't know him. I think he would have been a much better choice, personally. I assume the rights had already been sold, but I didn't know that at the time.

There are many, many choices in this genre, that's for sure!

Just a bit of trivia...I remember reading The Postman in short story form [before it was expanded to a book] when it first appeared in Omni magazine. I don't remember what year that was.

I enjoy zombies too. I really liked the triology by Rhiannon Frater: As the World Dies. I have it on my kindle, however, it has been unavailabe for purchase from Amazon for awhile now. There is some romance in it and it is easy to really like and care about the characters.

After the End Takes place in Manhattan.

After Life Takes place in the Twin Cities/WI area. Some romance between the main characters. People who are not zombies will come back as zombies after they die a natural death. That part was a little different.

Dead City

DRACULAS (A Novel of Terror)This story takes place in a hospital. Man gets infected then infects others. The whole story they remain at the hospital. It is written by a few authors together. Very entertaining. They could do a sequel and I would read that one too.

Het Madden, A Zombie Perspective: Book One: WRATH 2012 (Volume 1) (Het Madden, A Zombie Perspective.) Zombies that think and communicate. Different spin on zombies but it was a good book.
I tried to put links in for these zombie books that I liked. I read all of them cover to cover in a day or two, so they kept my attention. I paid the most for the trilogy books by Frater ($7), but the others were pretty inexpensive. Sorry I forgot to pay attention when adding the links. Hope this gives you some options.

I find I've been on an 'End-Of-The-World-As-We-Know-It' reading binge since I bought my Kindle in November!
Here are the books I've read that qualify for that category:

~ Last Light, by Terri Blackstock

~ One Second After, by William R. Fortschen

~ Lights Out, by David Crawford

~ Indivisible, by Troy Grice

~ The Jakarta Pandemic, by Steven Konkoly

~ The Sleep of the Gods, by James Sperl

~ Invasion America!, by Alan Wing

~ Land of Ash, by David Dalglish, David McAfee (which I just started)

I feel comfortable recommending each of them, but especially enjoyed 'Lights Out', 'One Second After', and 'The Jakarta Pandemic'.

I'm really glad I have an Amazon gift card because I'm going to go broke with all the books I want to purchase after going through all these posts! I love the Kindle community! <3

The Deep Winter series by Thomas Sherry is excellent.

no one has mentioned The Bible - now THERES some apocalyptic end-of-the world fictional drama....

One Second After by William R. Forstchen is a good book. Scary part of the book is the fact that it all to easily could turn into reality.

Is David Crawford planning a sequel to "Lights Out"? I have read dozens of dystopian/post-apocalyptic/zombie novels and I think Lights Out was the best constructed and proof-read of the bunch. I've forgotten dozens of others but really crave more Lights Out.

It was not only entertaining but he always inserts bits of humor. A great read.

Thanks for your suggestions I am going to follow up on them - 1 second after and Jakata Pandemic look good.

Another reviewer recommended As Wind Through Dry Grass and its sequel In the Valley of Dying Stars to me. You might want to check them out - definitely worth a look but not for the faint hearted or politically correct.
