ZOMBIE CRAWL: The Twelve Days of Zombie

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not when a creepy old guy who’s been spying on you all year decides to shimmy down the chimneys of only the most innocent children. It’s a far less sinister season: Halloween!

Here at Zombie Horror we love All Things Zombie. The Twelve Days of Christmas already exist, so without further ado, I bring you the Twelve Days of Zombie, incorporating some of my favourite tales from the genre.

Want a standalone series? Pick day one! Fancy a twelve-book long haul series? You know which day to pick ūüėČ what series do you enjoy, that I’ve missed from the list? Add a note with your favourites below, for a chance to win signed paperbacks of the Great Bitten series by Warren Fielding – two winners will receive books one and two, and participation is international!


On the first day of zombie, the grim corpse brought to me…

The Valley of the Dead, by Kim Paffenroth

(There are too many honourable mentions for the standalone category. I picked Paffenroth, because it’s a title that drew me into the genre, and made me want to read more zombie fiction).


On the second¬†day of zombie, the grim corpse brought to me…

Time of Death | Shana Festa (two books of terror and unmitigated death, and counting).

Honourable mentions:

The Great Bitten series | Warren Fielding (also two books and counting, shameless, I know).

  1. Nerys Wheatley’s Twenty-Five Percent series. This is a brilliant take on zombies. And such spot on humor. There are only 2 books out now with the 3rd due hopefully in January. I absolutely LOVE it. She is a wonderful author.

  2. Slow Burn. I have only read the box set of 1-3 but I enjoyed those three books. Great list I have only heard of one series on that list and it is my favorite (Time of Death).

  3. I haven’t read it but I say YEE HAW to ” White Trash Zombie”. I didn’t know there was a biography written about me!
