Zombies Vs. Unicorns

You know those times when you get into a ridiculous argument with your best friend over which fictional character could beat up another fictional character? Like who would win if Dumbledore and Gandalf got into a wizard's duel? Yeah that. Well, Holly Black and her friend Justine Larbalestier got into a fight over whether zombies or unicorns were more awesome, and because they are both authors, they took the fight to the next level: a whole book.  They asked their author friends to write stories about zombies and unicorns to help them settle the argument.  Each story is labeled with either the unicorn or zombie icon in case you only want to read about one or the other, and is preceded by a continuation of the mythic grudge match.

There are stories from fan favorites like Meg Cabot(The Princess Diaries), who tells the story of a girl who gets a pet unicorn as a birthday present, and Cassandra Clare(City of Bones) who writes about a city where everyone who dies rises from the grave, and has for centuries. Some of the stories are funny, some are sad, and some are a thrill ride. But whichever side of the argument you support(vote unicorn!), there is at least one story in Zombies vs. Unicorns for you.
