Published in Sep. It seems slightly unfair if hardly inaccurate to label Joe McKinney one of the reigning kings of zombie fiction, because his work has extended beyond the walking dead into ghost stories his novels Inheritance and Crooked House , virus thrillers Quarantined , and hardboiled noir Dodging Bullets. Why zombies? I remember watching that when I was about thirteen or fourteen and then going off to bed every night for the next three weeks clutching a baseball bat. My fascination with zombies began right then. The trouble was—except for a few movies of varying quality—they were hard to find. As I got older and busier with my career, I resigned myself to watching Night and Dawn and Day of the Dead over and over again.

I told my editor that I had created this huge world outside of the events in Dead City , so why not explore it? He agreed. He said write me something epic, something like The Stand or Swan Song. I said okay and I was off. I started writing Apocalypse of the Dead and suddenly the Dead World series came together.
Can you tell us a little about why you decided to use women as the lead characters in these two books, and what it was like to write from a female perspective? Let me try to answer that with a quote from Stephen King.
This comes from his introduction to the Pocket Paperback edition of The Shining. He writes: But when my editor called and wanted Dead City to be a series, I got busy writing novels. I wrote Apocalypse of the Dead , yes, but I also wrote Quarantined and the first draft of the novel that would one day become Inheritance and a still unpublished crime novel called Internal Affairs is Hell.
But of those books, Quarantined was the next one I actually finished writing.
For it, I decided to do something a little different. Things are changing, but slowly. Anyway, I had heard a lot of the issues real women in law enforcement dealt with from my female friends, and I thought Quarantined would be a great opportunity to tell their story.
Quarantined , in many ways, made me believe that I could actually make a go of this writing thing.
Earlier biographies of you listed The Zombie King as the fourth of the Dead World books—was that just an earlier title for Mutated , or was that an entirely different book? Mutated and The Zombie King are the same book.
But then, during a meeting with my editor at Kensington, I brought up the idea for the book that would become Flesh Eaters , and he fell so hard for it that he asked me to make that one my next book. So I did that. But shortly after I finished Flesh Eaters , a very good friend died unexpectedly at the age of thirty-two. I took his death pretty hard, and when I came back to Mutated , I ended up putting a lot of my feelings about his loss into the rewrites.
The tone of the book really changed. It got a lot darker, a lot more introspective, and when my editor read it, he suggested we change the title. We bounced ideas back and forth, and eventually came up with Mutated. Your new book, The Savage Dead , is set on a cruise ship. Is it part of the Dead World series, or a stand-alone book? Two of your most recent books— Inheritance and Crooked House —are ghost stories, and seem to employ a slightly different though still recognizable style.
Did you approach these differently from your zombie books? A zombie story, generally, requires a lot of action. Fans of the zombie like to see a lot of interaction between human and once-human. Sometimes—and, perhaps, most profitably—that interaction is deeply personal and emotionally intense. But you have to fire bullets, too. The best zombie stories explore what it means to be human, and what it means to confront love and death and pain, but they also satisfy the need for action.

So when I set out to write a zombie story I know that I will be doing some fairly aggressive pacing. The action will be at the forefront, and the character conflict will be layered into the action invisibly. Ghost stories carry a different sort of expectation. Or, at least they used to. The narrative would slowly pull you up that first big climb. A good ghost story builds that way, like a roller coaster.
What I write about is loss and unresolved conflict and love. Those are the only things, I think, that could bring a person back from whatever lies beyond this world. Despite having written a story about the afterlife, I make no claims about knowing what comes after. I know only that in this life love matters, and if the random genetic accident of our intelligence makes any sense at all, it must be focused on that which we love.
Does the human spirit survive after death? But if it does, love must be at the root of it. I also very much enjoyed your foray into the territory of hardboiled crime thriller, Dodging Bullets , which really captured the feel of a classic pulp novel.
As a teen, yeah. I went through all the John D.
MacDonald and Donald E. Westlake books I could find. MacDonald, especially, became a towering influence for me. I remember—I was, I think, sixteen or seventeen—taking a John D. MacDonald paperback and copying out whole scenes onto a yellow legal pad just so I could dissect how he developed characters and built tension.
I never had a formal education as a writer. But if I can point to one thing that shaped how I would one day write, it was those moments spent copying out and dissecting John D. That was how I learned to write. Was it difficult to write? Do you generally try to challenge yourself emotionally when you write? Thank you, Lisa. You witnessed the first, and almost certainly the only time I will ever read that story in public.
It was incredibly difficult for me to finish, for the events that prompted me to write it are still so very fresh in my mind. Her wish was to put the story in that little booklet you get when you go to funerals, the one that names the various schedule of readings and hymns and such.
I thought it was a terrible idea, for what work of fiction could ever truly capture the essence of friendship and of a human life lived to its absolute fullest? But she was insistent, and her husband had been a dear, dear friend, and so I took a bottle of wine into my study and opened my laptop and started writing.
It took about four hours, but most of my soul, to write. How often do you find yourself in the middle of a crime scene and already transposing it into fiction?
Can I answer this with a story? Okay, here goes. A long time ago, when I was a brand new patrolman who still enjoyed chasing people who would do anything to stay out of prison, I got this call for a naked man running down the middle of I Meth freaks and those fantastically high on cocaine, you see, sometimes go into a fugue state called excited delirium.
The pulse races to as high as Blood pressure soars. People in this condition are very near to death. And they are impossible to contain.
I once had a pound stripper high on meth break my handcuffs and fight six cops like a pit bull possessed by something out of a William Peter Blatty novel. It was ugly.
But back to the naked guy. They run with traffic on busy roads because they zero in on the red taillights. Lots of cops die that way, unfortunately. So I came up behind this guy and saw him chasing taillights. I knew right away what I had and called for EMS and any cover officers close by.
But before my cover arrived, this guy suddenly veered off the roadway and started running through a tangled screen of huisache and mesquite. With every step he was shredding himself to ribbons on innumerable thorns.
