I am Max Brooks, author of World War Z, and I am here to discuss the coronavirus. Let’s talk about why my fictional zombie book was banned by the very real government of China. AMA.
Let’s talk about survival. Individuals, groups, nations. Let’s talk about how fictional threats can teach us real survival skills. Let’s talk about why my fictional zombie book, “World War Z” was banned by the very real government of China and how that government has let another very real plague get out of control. No matter what I write about, zombies, World War 1, Minecraft, and even my new threat, Bigfoot, the theme is always the same: adapting to survive. Let’s talk about what it means to adapt to this new Coronavirus danger and what it will mean for all of us.
