Amy Tintera - Reboot
Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation). Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum. The perfect soldier is done taking orders.

Mira Grant - Feed
In 2014, two experimental viruses—a genetically engineered flu strain designed by Dr. Alexander Kellis, intended to act as a cure for the common cold, and a cancer-killing strain of Marburg, known as "Marburg Amberlee"—escaped the lab and combined to form a single airborne pathogen that swept around the world in a matter of days. It cured cancer. It stopped a thousand cold and flu viruses in their tracks. It raised the dead. Millions died in the chaos that followed. The summer of 2014 was dubbed "The Rising," and only the lessons learned from a thousand zombie movies allowed mankind to survive. Even then, the world was changed forever. The mainstream media fell, Internet news acquired an undeniable new legitimacy, and the CDC rose to a new level of power. Set twenty years after the Rising, the Newsflesh trilogy follows a team of bloggers, led by Georgia and Shaun Mason, as they search for the brutal truths behind the infection. Danger, deceit, and betrayal lurk around every corner, as does the hardest question of them all: When will you rise?
Ann Aguirre - Menedék
A második világégéskor születtem. Legendák szóltak egy olyan korról, amikor az emberek hosszú ideig éltek. Én dajkamesének tartottam. Az én világomban senki sem érte meg a negyven évet. Egy enklávéban éltem, ahol a legidősebb közülünk huszonöt éves volt. Némelyek azt suttogták, megváltás lenne számára a halál, de igazából csak nem akarták a saját maguk jövendőjét látni. Pikk amióta csak az eszét tudja, vadásznő szeretett volna lenni. A vadászok feladata élelmet szerezni a közösségnek a föld alatti menedéket körülölelő, életveszélyes alagútrendszerből, amelyben örök sötétség honol, miközben igyekeznek elkerülni a Korcsokat, ezeket a zombiszerű, vérszomjas szörnyetegeket. Amikor az örök kívülálló, Fakó nevű vadászt osztják be mellé társul, aki titokzatos körülmények között került az enklávéba, a lányt tiltott érzelmek kerítik hatalmukba. Fakóval hamarosan rádöbbennek, hogy a Korcsok egyre szervezettebben lépnek fel ellenük, ám az idősek nem hallgatnak figyelmeztetésükre. Megszokott kis világuk szertefoszlik, így rákényszerülnek, hogy szembenézzenek az ismeretlennel. Köszöntünk az apokalipszisben!

Stephen King - A mobil
Clay Riddell grafikus Bostonba utazik, hogy tárgyaljon az általa tervezett képregény ügyében. A kiadóba menet a parkban beáll a fagylaltoskocsi előtt kígyózó sorba, mert a melegben bizony jólesne egy hűsítő nyalánkság. Az előtte állók némelyikének megcsörren a mobiltelefonja, s mikor beleszólnak, leírhatatlan dolgok történnek. A telefonálók megvadulnak, egymásnak esnek vagy önmaguk ellen fordulnak, s pillanatok alatt őrjöngő-vérengző emberek töltik meg az utcákat. Claynek - micsoda szerencse! - nincs mobilja, s hamar rájön, hogy az őrületet csakis a telefon által közvetített impulzus okozhatja. Néhány hozzá hasonló, mobilmentes emberrel elindul, hogy olyan területet keressenek, ahol nincs telefonos lefedettség és hajtja az aggodalom is, vajon mi történhetett otthon a feleségével és a kisfiával, akik mindketten mobilhasználók? A káoszban nem könnyű az utazás. A megfertőzőtt telefonembereket mintha egy ijesztő kollektív tudat irányítaná, a kevés megmaradt "normális" pedig kétségbeesetten küzd, hogy megmentse önmagát s a világból azt, ami még megmenthető. Stephen King, a thriller kimeríthetetlen fantáziájú mestere, mindenből ihletet merít. Ezúttal is lebilincselő történetet mesél el, de biztos, ami biztos, míg a regényt olvassa, kapcsolja ki a mobiltelefonját.

Based on extensive interviews with survivors and key players in the 10-year fight-back against the horde, "World War Z" brings the very finest traditions of American journalism to bear on what is surely the most incredible story in the history of civilisation.
