Zombies vs. Unicorns hits bookstores today, September 21st. The anthology of zombie and unicorn short stories was written by a number of bestselling young adult authors. Zombies vs. Unicorns got its start when authors, Holly Black (Spiderwick series) and Justine Larbalestier (Madness or Magic trilogy), started a blog war disputing the superiority of the two creatures. Black and Larbalestier edited the anthology and will lead their authors in a public Zombies vs. Unicorns Debate in celebration of the book’s release. The discussion will take place Friday, September 24th at the 15th annual Baltimore Book Festival in Baltimore, Maryland.
Bunker Life firmly supports “Team Zombie.”
Last week saw the release of The Zombies of Lake Woebegotten by Harrison Geillor. A clear parody of radio personality, Garrison Keillor, and his program, “News from Lake Wobegon”—Lake Woebegotten tells the story of a rural Minnesota community, and its citizens’ attempt at a normal life in the midst of a zombie invasion. A satire of zombie tales, Minnesotans, and Garrison Keillor’s subtle wit, The Zombies of Lake Woebegotten is a zombie book like no other.
