Max Brooks News
Because fannes of Anne Bancroft are likely interested in following the success of her son, I am including this section for him.
First, some trivia. Graduated from film school at American University, 1994. Was a writer for Saturday Night Live. Worked as a production assistant on Michael Palin's African rail pilgrimage at the BBC. Author of The Zombie Survival Guide. Became engaged to Michelle Kholos in September 2002, married in 2003. A note in the Fall 2005 issue of Emerson College's alumni magazine under "Class of 1990:"
And read here Only Child magazine's extensive interview with Max on what it was like to grow up the child of famous parents. Lots of fabulous photos, as well.

I'm excited to announce that Max's site has come into its own this summer, so my page here will no longer be updated as it used to be, apart from occasional interviews or pics. He's got news, project updates, multimedia, and more! Bookmark him here. His latest item is an interview on Olbermann -- priceless. Don't forget to join his mailing list!

Don't forget to bookmark this most excellent page for the latest Max Brooks news. Remember, my site is not a site for Max, it's for his mom! You'll definitely want to find sources that can provide you up-to-the minute info about Max, unlike this page.

Max has been very busy this summer, most recently at San Diego's Comicon in late July:
Here's a video interview from SDCC! "The worst part of doing an audio book is hearing my own voice, and hearing the nasally, Hebraic sound of my own nerdvoice." Too funny.
This lucky young lady chatted with Max at the Wizard World Philadelphia Comicon in June:
A nice Max Brooks slideshow from Philly here.
Max also sez:
And the new writer is... Matthew Michael Carnahan, who specializes in political thrillers. Some have speculated that they might be dumbing down Max's book for the masses. Zombie car chases, explosions, etc. Others speculate that his involvement portends more government involvement with the zombie attacks.
Ummm, maybe a new director as well (link)??
Here is a Facebook page for the Z movie, keep it bookmarked.
This is nice -- how Max brings a new perspective to an old genre.
Great news, and great interview here!

We really have a bit of a problem here... Max is so
incredibly busy, there is so much news that pertains to him, that I can no
longer keep up with him. Someone out there really needs to create a site

Jody H. pointed out that his room number was 5AB, ha!). I'll just
post links here for you guys to visit as you wish (these links have not
