    If you're looking for something new and unique in a sea of generic zombie stories, try William Van Winkle's short but powerful Civil War zombie novella, The Followers. It's rich in history and lore, full of twists and turns that give new meaning to the term "poetic justice" and with just enough gore to satisfy the true zombie lover without alienating the rest of us!
