Some genres just go together. The weird western. The cyberpunk thriller. The fantasy private eye. David Wellington thinks that two genres that go together are the zombie novel and the Mad Max-style road adventure. You know what? I think he’s right.
I wasn’t exactly looking for a new zombie novel, but Positive has won me over. David Wellington is also the author of the classic zombie novel Monster Island (2006), and its sequels Monster Nation (2006) and Monster Planet (2007). Seanan McGuire calls Positive “One of the best zombie novels I’ve read in years… harrowing, brutal, brilliant,” and Booklist says it’s “recommended to readers of all epic-scale fantasy.”
Positive was published by Harper Voyager on November 24, 2015. It is 576 pages, priced at $9.99 in paperback and $7.99 for the digital edition.
