Feed by Mira Grant


        Feed is the first book in the Newsflesh Trilogy, written by Seanan McGuire under the penname Mira Grant, and published by Orbit Books.A science fiction/horror novel set after a zombie apocalypse and written from the perspective of blog journalist Georgia Mason, Feed follows Georgia and her news team as they join Republican senator Peter Ryman's presidential campaign. A series of deadly incidents leads Georgia and her brother Shaun to discover efforts to undermine the campaign, linked to a larger conspiracy involving the undead.McGuire's inspiration to write the book was the combination of her interests in horror movies and virology, but she struggled with the plot until a friend suggested using an election as a framing device. The book has been praised for its detailed worldbuilding, including the characters' awareness of previous zombie fiction; an element McGuire had found lacking in most horror works. Feed came second in the 2011 Hugo Award for Best Novel category. Just before Blackout (the conclusion of the trilogy) was published in May 2012, McGuire released an alternate ending to Feed.
