What can be more fun than unicorns, right? How about unicorns that kick zombie butts?! Now THAT’S what I’m talking about! You think the Jane Austen mash ups have been groundbreaking? Well, get a load of this: a book of stories about the encounters between our favorite magical creatures AND flesh-eating zombies (whom we also love, right?)! Seriously, this doesn’t get much better, does it? But wait! Let me sweeten the pot with even more good news. These stories are written by some of our greatest authors: Garth Nix, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Naomi Novik, Carrie Ayan, Margot Lanagan, Maureen Johnson, Diana Peterfreund, Scott Westerfeld, Meg Cabot, Cassandra Clare, Kathleen Duey, Libba Bray! How can you possibly resist that line up? What are you waiting for? Run down to the bookstore right now and have a look. Check out the cutesy cover… oh, wait? Is that unicorn tearing the arm off a zombie? Uh, er, yea, that’s cute, right?

Stanley recommends this one!

    With the recent YA fascination of vampires and zombies, what wouldn't the publishers leave alone. There are now even re-imaginations of Jane Austen's books as being inhabited by zombies. And now UNICORNS??? What's next?
