Zombies vs. Unicorns (Compact Disc)
Justine Larbalestier says that zombies are our own walking deaths. Funny, grim, and terrifying, they cannot be escaped. Unicorns are sparkly and pastel and fart rainbows.
Holly Black says that unicorns are healers, arbiters of justice, and, occasionally, majestic man-killers. Zombies drool and shed and probably carry diseases.
Some of today's finest writers have chosen their side, creating dazzling stories about both creatures. So listen on, and decide for yourself:
