    Read it a while ago. It was pretty interesting. A lot of recent authors are moving away from the Romeroesque shambling corpse. I wonder if the the WWZ movie will stay true to the book or try to spice it up.

    Finished it a few weeks ago... It was in my list since I got word that the author of "Tooth and Nail" (which was awesome), published another Z book.

    Great book, no zombies (they are, well... Infected) , but the characters are great, and the story is great also. No gun porn, no mindless gorefest, and pretty good portrayal of several issues (social, psicological, tactical, even faith related) in a total collapse situation.

    BTW, is Craig DiLouie, don't worry I also have one of those damn dyslexic keyborads...

    I thought it was interesting that the action was set in and around Pittsburgh, especially since the author is a Canadian and doesn't seem to have any ties to that place. I think it was meant as an homage to George Romero. My two favorite things, 1) the scene where the infected over-run the police station (that is what it must have felt like when the zombie outbreak happened in "We're Alive") and 2) it demonstrates just how much armored vehicles rock!

    Oh, I also follow him on FaceBook. Infection is getting a sequel and I think the key-hammering is almost done and it is moving toward editting.

    "I am now 96,000 words into THE KILLING FLOOR, the sequel to THE INFECTION, and wrapping up the finale. After that the epilogue, then a week or so of tinkering and revisions, then submittal to Permuted Press for publication around the beginning of 2012. Get ready for one hell of a ride through the apocalypse."

    And just because I can, I will also say that I really liked the ex-series by peter clines. Ex-patriots should be in print later this year. The next Day-by-Day Armageddon should also be out soon.

    I am just a fan passing on fun to other fans. II have no financial stake....

    I guess I have been watching stock-channels too much

    Really? nice to know!, the weird creatures origin is a mystery that needs solving. I more was intrested in a "Tooth and Nail" sequel, (I also need to know what happened after the Co. last stand, and to the world and the vaccine!), but Infection was awesome (second only to DbDA).

    DbDA is my all time favorite, I consider it the best!, even now that it's evolving from survival/horror to horror/sci-fi/adventure (from my point of view). P. Clines Ex series was a surprise to me. Ex-Heroes is really good, take a super hero universe (not Marvel, not DC, more like Watchmen) and mix it with classic Romero Z's and you get an excellent story (did U knoow that the audiobook is read by Jay Snyder who reads the Journal in the DbDA audiobook?). I actually imagined it as a lame-cheesy story with copycat superheros, it was after I read some good evaluations here that I decided it was worth it, and it surely did! I cant wait to get Ex-Patriots.
