Max Brooks: Zombie Slayer

When anything zombie related is mentioned to horror fans, the first thing we think of is the godfather of zombie films, George Romero. Mention a zombie book and we think of the great Max Brooks.

Brooks’ other books The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z explores the world of “what if’s,” prepared us for when the virus strikes and gives us testimonies of “first hand” accounts. These are both really fantastic books so I’m happy to see another Brooks book, The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks.

Those who don’t learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

From the Stone Age to the information age, the undead have threatened to engulf the human race. They’re coming. They’re hungry.

Don’t wait for them to come to you!

This is the graphic novel the fans demanded: major zombie attacks from the dawn of humanity. On the African savannas, against the legions of ancient Rome, on the high seas with Francis Drake . . . every civilization has faced them. Here are the grisly and heroic stories–complete with eye-popping artwork that pulsates with the hideous faces of the undead.

Organize before they rise!

Scripted by the world’s leading zombie authority, Max Brooks, Recorded Attacks reveals how other eras and cultures have dealt with–and survived–the ancient viral plague. By immersing ourselves in past horror we may yet prevail over the coming outbreak in our time.

This will be out on October 6th, and though I have some books to catch up on, I’m going to get this and read it right away!
