Author Max Brooks is Writing a Minecraft Novel

Minecraft Will Soon Be a Novel And a Movie!

Max Brooks is best known for his work on the popular World War Z, a follow up to his Zombie Survival Guide novel which came out in 2003. Brooks specializes in horror stories, more specifically zombie stories. It will be interesting to see how Brooks develops Minecraft into a series of books.

Lydia Winters, the Brand Director behind Minecraft has mentioned that Brooks was the first choice for author, as she said, “From our first meeting with Max, we knew he would be a perfect fit for our first foray into novels based on Minecraft”. It also helps that Brooks has had a passion and love for the game since day one. Lydia believes Brooks will be able to write from a perspective that will be relatable to the fans. Brooks says, "I’m very excited to be part of this new venture, finally, I can justify all those hours I’ve spent playing Minecraft."

The novel will be titled Minecraft: The Island, and the plot will center around a hero stranded in an unfamiliar territory learning how to survive, despite his odds. Obviously, the book with closely relate to the game, in that survival is the ultimate goal.  Also, for those who were unaware, Minecraft will be turned into a movie, which is projected to release May of 2019!
