Devolution – Legendary picks up Max Brooks’ Bigfoot book

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Max Brooks wrote the excellent World War Z novel and his new book, Devolution: A Firsthand Account of the Rainier Sasquatch Massacre, has just been released (you can order it below).

Here is the synopsis:

As the ash and chaos from Mount Rainier’s eruption swirled and finally settled, the story of the Greenloop massacre has passed unnoticed, unexamined . . . until now.

But the journals of resident Kate Holland, recovered from the town’s bloody wreckage, capture a tale too harrowing – and too earth-shattering in its implications – to be forgotten.

In these pages, Max Brooks brings Kate’s extraordinary account to light for the first time, faithfully reproducing her words alongside his own extensive investigations into the massacre and the beasts behind it, once thought legendary but now known to be terrifyingly real.

Kate’s is a tale of unexpected strength and resilience, of humanity’s defiance in the face of a terrible predator’s gaze, and inevitably, of savagery and death.

Yet it is also far more than that.

Because if what Kate Holland saw in those days is real, then we must accept the impossible. We must accept that the creature known as Bigfoot walks among us – and that it is a beast of terrible strength and ferocity.

Part survival narrative, part bloody horror tale, part scientific journey into the boundaries between truth and fiction, this is a Bigfoot story as only Max Brooks could chronicle it – and like none you’ve ever read before.

THR reports that Legendary Entertainment has picked up the book. It was originally developed as a film project between Brooks and Legendary back in 2012. However, Brooks decided to write it as a book and now here we are.

Still very early days, but I have ordered the book and look forward to reading it as I thoroughly enjoyed reading World War Z.
