Dear recommendations engine,

Yes, I admit that I bought Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead vols. 1-4, a series of zombie-themed graphic novels. But no, that doesn’t mean that I am a lover of zombie fiction. In fact, I don’t like zombies at all; I find them tedious and uninteresting. The thing is, though, these aren’t zombie novels in the usual horror genre sense — they’re apocalypse books where zombies happen to be the particular vector of the apocalypse. And as apocalypse books go, they’re pretty good — not genre-transcendingly great, but definitely worth reading for people who like apocalypse-themed comics.

Anyway, though, knock it off with the zombie recommendations. Thanks.

Sincerely, Me
