Max Brooks is the author of two internationally bestselling books The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. He has also written for Saturday Night Live, for which he won an Emmy and is the son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft.
'Brooks infuses his writing with such precise detail and authenticity, one wonders if he knows something we don't.'-- Simon Pegg
'When the zombie apocalypse arrives, we ll be at Max Brooks house... As a horror story, its exciting. As a parable, it s terrifying.'* Empire Magazine (on World War Z) *
'A welcome continuation to the world that Max Brooks created, and subsequently destroyed, in his previous fictional outings. Unlike so many current zombie authors, Brooks writes with an intelligence and poise that elevates his work above the rest of the genre. Brooks shows incredible knowledge of a wide variety of topics, including geography, military procedures and socio-political factors, throughout his work. The level of care and detail he puts into settings and characters make for stories that are nothing short of compelling and, perhaps even better, are entirely convincing. If George A. Romero is revered as the king of zombie films then Max Brooks must surely be dubbed the king of zombie fiction.'* This Is Horror *
