    If you're interested in military Sci-Fi I would recommend Gordon Fleischer's "War For Profit Trilogy", which is available as a fairly cheap download from Amazon. It's the story of German man's career as a mercenary tank soldier in the distant future. One book of the trilogy includes a great example of how mechanized forces can deal with an isolated zombie outbreak.

    Stephen Pressfeild has an awesome book along the same line (Mercenary in the not to distant future) called The Profession. Exelent read and I'm sure you have already read his book Gates of Fire, I made it required reading for everyone in my squad in Iraq.

    Thank you so much for the hard SF and military SF recommendations. I haven't been into that for now; but it's never too late to get into it, right?

    Now, that's quite a long list of recoms I received here ... Something's to do about it, I guess ... Like reading?

    All the best!

    have you noticed? There also is a part 5 available which is set like 20 years later then what happens in Deadlock #1-#4 ...
    This is an intersting title. Thank you. Have put it on my list as well ...

    Now I just need to receive my Kindle PW, and I am happy. Might take like 1.5 months from now on ...

    All the best!

    The stand. It will keep you going for EVER and kindle has to be the best way to read it (the book its self ways a lot being 1400 pages long). Its post apocalyptic not zombie but its a really great book.

    if you are considering some sci fi "Enders game" is excellent. Only just read it through my library but it is very good.
    Talking of libraries, quite a few have ebook facilities via websites etc. If your anything like me you burn through books so fast you'd need apples income just to keep yourself satiated.

    Hi there,

    @Solanine: Thank you for the recommendations. You could not know - but if there is one author on Mother Earth I really don't enjoy reading, then it is Stephen King; I only managed to get through two titles ("Stand by me" and "Misery"); any other story I stopped reading after a handful of pages; I simply don't enjoy his style. But I know: I am special about it; everyone around me enjoys reading S. King. But I like watching the movies based on his stories. Weird, isn't it?
    "Ender's Game" sounds interesting and promissing; do I understand it correctly - it is a quintet of novels?

    All the best!

    hmm...

    heres one for ya. public enemy zero by andrew mayne. andrew began writing books in the last few years and this one was one of his earliest works. his "zombie" concept for this book is quite original and i found it to be a fun read....feels like "the prisoner" with zombies...and no one armed man. i hate to tell ya the premise, but its way badass

    Breathers is really awesome.
    Patient Zero is pretty ok.
    Zombie CSU is a decent read.
    Dead of Night.
