I remember a day when the country was crazy about vampires. Okay, the country is still crazy about vampires (and I maintain that Buffy the Vampire Slayer remains the best television show about vampires). Now, we’re also crazy about zombies. Zombies in movies, zombies on TV, zombies in books, here a zombie, there a zombie…. But, I ask you, what about the unicorns?
That’s right, Zombies vs. Unicorns, a compilation of 12 short stories, edited by Holly Black (Team Unicorn) and Justine Larbalestier (Team Zombie), that settles once and for all the age-old debate of which is better, zombies or unicorns?
Team Zombie: Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Maureen Johnson, Carrie Ryan, and Scott Westerfeld.
Team Unicorn: Meg Cabot, Kathleen Duey, Margo Lanagan, Garth Nix, Naomi Novik, and Diana Peterfreund.
So are you Team Unicorn or Team Zombie? If you’re on the fence (and you shouldn’t still be on the fence if/when the zombie apocalypse happens), this book will help you decide.
