Tankbread - Paul Mannering
Tankbread is $5.99 for the kindle. It was free when I downloaded it. This book is plenty good enough to pay for. It's been 10 years since humans lost the war against zombies. The remaining humans now produce clones called tankbread. Tankbread is produced so zombies will leave humans alone, and humans can maintain a dangerous balance of peace. A human courier is hired to retrieve a delivery for a zombie boss named Soo-Yong. The courier can't know that he'll discover the true nature of tankbread on his mission, and that tankbread may hold the only hope humanity has of surviving as a species. This is an awesome story. The nightmare world of Australia in the grip of the zombie hoards is described in chilling detail. The tension can be cut with a sword, just like zombie necks. Very highly recommended to anyone with a strong stomach.
