It is showing that the cultural tradition is shifting to a more science fiction book. The books that people are reading the most these days have to do with some sort of fantasy or fairytale. With this being said the old classics still exist in today’s world, although they may not have as many readers as the new science fiction books that are being written in today’s time.
My personal literary canon is scattered a little bit, I like reading about zombies and such, but I also like to read the old classics about cowboys, my two favorite books happen to be almost the same, “Ole Yeller” and “Where The Red Fern Grows” are my favorite books, but “The Walking Dead” is becoming more and more of my constant reading topic
the zombie craze has currently exploded since all the hype about bath salt zombies and such. people have always been interested in the "undead" and the idea of it. another reason zombies have gotten so popular is the idea of the world ending in a survival style first person shooter. video games have made zombies a fantasy if you will.
