I do second enjoying the Newsflesh trilogy.
Zombie 'apocalypse' in that zombies come, depopulate, are an inevitable outcome, but cities are still there and the government still works and tries to keep it all under control.

Interesting look into a more 'realistic' zombie uprising.

Edit: I'm also a fan of Larry Correia, especially because he's a member of another forum I'm on and people can actually reach and talk to him. The Monster Hunter International series is an account of "what if all those monster attack rumors were actually true?" and there was a group that took care of controlling them and taking the bounty on them.

Better after the first, when his editors started letting contractions through.

I'm a fan of the E.E. Knight Vampire Earth series currently on the 6th book in the series.

"In the Vampire Earth series, aliens from a world known as Kur have taken over the world, destroying human society and enslaving the survivors. The novels follow the life of David Valentine, a young man who enlists with Southern Command, one of the few remnants of the old U.S. government scattered around, as he follows his heart even when it conflicts with orders."

Quick summary from the wiki page.

Loved this book.

I was one of the few adults in the theater that wasn't there with a kid...

An all time classic! I still read this to my kids averaging about once a month. Funny how they could get a 2 hour movie out of 16 or so pages!

The Road, I Am Legend, and WWZ are all excellent choices. Going to have to check out Roadside Picnic.

Don't hate, but does The Stand count? I haven't read it in 25 years, but liked it way back when...
