Miami Spy Games
I hope not is my short answer. Obviously, everything goes in cycles and zombies are the hot thing right now, especially with The Walking Dead ruling the television landscape. At some point it will jump the shark and be the next vampire backlash craze. In movies we’re already starting to see the lame zombie comedies (Shaun of The Dead was amazing, but not much more) and mediocre cash-ins about zombies.
My Dying Days series as well as Miami Spy Games focuses on the living people, and how they interact with one another and the people around them during a zombie apocalypse or outbreak. I’m not really interested in the hordes of zombies coming down the road. I want to write about the fear in the eyes of the survivors as they see this swarm plodding toward them, and which characters will shield the women and children and which will run away and leave everyone else for dead.
Is zombie lit dying? I don’t think so. There are so many great variants to the cliché about zombies, and I don’t think we’ve scratched the surface. As more stories and ideas are written, I see more and more unique angles. I don’t think that will run out soon. You will always have a smaller but rabid fan base for zombie books, and I hope to keep them interested in my own work as they look for the next undead tale to read.
