August 10, Wednesday night -- Reading Max Brooks

Checking IDs at Zeitgeist, the biker bar in the Mission District.
Reading World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, by Max Brooks, the son of Mel Brooks.

I asked him what his favorite book is. Do comic books count? He asked. Yes, of course they do. Then it's Swamp Thing, a DC Comic written by Alan Moore.

Right now he's also reading Snow Crash, a cyberpunk novel by William Gibson. He likes everything by William Gibson. When people walk through the door of Zeitgieist they have been commenting on that book, and also on World War Z, as well. They've both been getting a lot of comments, he said.

Snow Crash is by Neal Stephenson, not William Gibson.William Gibson wrote Neuromancer.

I've gotta read World War Z at some point, not to mention his other book "The Zombie Survival Guide" I think it's called.

Everyone keeps telling me I should read them!
