Strike Team Alpha! Strike Team Beta! THIS IS THE MAN YOU ARE GOING TO FIND.
(Let us pause just a moment to note that Max Brooks is a hottie. Ladies of the GHC, we have another nomination.)
This picture comes to us courtesy of RedHead Dread, whom I don't know and did not realize until I opened her email that I have loved her for my entire life. No, really. I was halfway through the note, clicked the links and said to myself i have no idea who this is but i love her so very much i can tell.
She turns out to be yet another person I don't know whom I turned onto the glory that is World War Z. Yay! I'm up to somewhere in the mid-30s with this one. I started counting when people started sending thank you emails. That's never happened before and it's so cool. I am happy to spread the word about a truly excellent book people might ignore thinking it is something else. ***
OMG I HAVE AN IDEA!!!
If you are reading this and you are going to be at CCI, and if you have also read and loved either WWZ or the Zombie Survival Guide, should you happen to come across Max Brooks tell him how very awesome it would be if he wrote a couple few more Elijah Black stories.
Even better, if you actually luck out and meet Max Brooks while wandering among the 100,000+ CCI attendees, if you have +4 charisma skills please use that mojo to talk him into going over to AA 6 up in the sails area anytime between 3:25 and 4:15 on Friday. BRING HIM TO ME. I have Sharpies! In many different colors! I'm really easy to spot - I'll be the black woman standing somewhere next to the table at the front of the line bossing people around. I'm not going to have the megaphone this year, but then again, I don't need one. ***
Okay, swear to the Flying Spaghetti Monster this time, off to pack and do my hair.
*** Now I can't wait to Complain About The Movie Adaptation, which is one of my fave hobbies.
*** I don't CARE that he's only listed for an event on Thursday. I'm going to be busy during the Romero/Brooks spotlight. You must use your mojo to talk him into coming back to the show on Friday AND BRING HIM TO ME.
