Barnes and Noble recently published a Top 10 list of zombie apocalypse stories. I was proud to see SUFFER THE CHILDREN on the list alongside works by great authors like Peter Clines, M.R. Carey, Max Brooks, Isaac Marion, Colson Whitehead and others.
Strange they picked SUFFER THE CHILDREN, which is basically a vampire undead story, over my zombie books, but hey, I’m not complaining. B&N.com writes:
Technically the children in DiLouie’s book are vampires, but stay with us here. After an epidemic sweeps the globe, killing all the children in the world, there’s a moment of dizzy joy when the kids all come back. Except, they’re still dead, just reanimated—and hungry for blood. Once they’ve fed, they become normal again, just like they were. But it wears off, leading parents all over the world to face the question: how far will you go to feed your children—your children—human blood in order to keep them (more or less) alive? Examining the battle between parental love and the horror of the scenario is pure genius.
Thanks, Barnes and Noble!
