Bored of the Dead
There are plenty of '..of the dead.." books & films. In fact, I reckon we've almost run out of titles. To my mind, free ones still remaining for aspiring authors include - Moped of the Dead, Brunch of the Dead, Skateboard of the Dead, Dead of the Dead etc.
I'm not saying that all tomes with this title are naff - far from it, I'm reading Domain of the Dead at the moment & it kicks ass. However, it did get me thinking about the whole genre & whether we really are in danger of getting 'bored of the dead'.
The big release of the World War Z movie is sure going to ramp things up. The current tv series of the Walking Dead is keeping things toasty. The plethora of eBooks exponentially expands on a daily basis with authors boasting of '4000 downloads' a month on a free book. What does this all mean?
Well, for every bubble, there is a bursting. And, this one is blown up to the max. Where else do we take the genre that we haven't done already? Some of the most famous zombie authors like Eric S. Brown have branched out, in this case into the land of the BigFoot Wars. I suspect more will follow him. Many already do.
To be honest, I don't think the genre will ever dry up. Course it won't. We love zombies. But, I do think the volume will continue to expand, Amazon being flooded with low/mid-quality e-books. I think the quest for a good read will become harder but it may also become cheaper.
So bored of the dead? Not yet & I think the whole post-apoc genre will always survive. As long as we are here. Also, I think it will be much harder for good stories to get their heads above the water & wave hello.
