Max Brooks seemed to come out of no-where with “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War”. Who is this genius who can meld political science, class A writing, and zombie gore into arguably one of the best written books ever?
Although he hit the sci fic/horror/zombie scene with little to no warning, in fact Brooks has a rather illustrious career that includes acting, writing for SNL, and a degree in history.
