Team Unicorn vs. Team Zombie? New Book Fires Up The Debate

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

unicorn_zombieNo matter what spiral notebook you dare to sneak a peek in – particularly those that are stuffed deep inside the lockers of the AP science and history set — nail biting battles between magically powerful yet perpetually elusive horn-toting unicorns and their inexplicable arch enemies, zombies, can always be seen playing out in full glory. The spilled walking dead guts…the ramming horns…rainbow blood pooling around solitary daisies…geesh, the carnage can oftentimes be too much to stomach.

Their epic struggle is one of those simple facts of life that creatures possessing such seemingly boundless super powers must ultimately contend with. Just as scholars have contemplated whether our world is round or flat, the age old question of who is better, stronger, more powerful and simply bad-assical must naturally be questioned by man.

You know you’ve been there – no sense in fighting it. Whether you have found yourself analyzing the zombie vs. unicorn power struggle following a marathon shot-pounding-session or during a lull in your weekly Dungeons and Dragons potluck get-together, the fact remains…both mythological entities summon heated arguments that even the most level headed (and particularly loopy, Napoleon Dynamite-like dreamers) find impossible to resist.

Good news, fellow mytho-philosophers!  Simon & Schuster is releasing a new book this upcoming September titled (appropriately enough) Zombies vs. Unicorns! Meant to offer cerebral nourishment and edification regarding this most perplexing of all ponderances, the collection of essays – inspired by blog posts exchanged between authors Justine Larbalestier and Holly Black, featuring contributions by the likes of Scott Westerfeld, Maureen Johnson, Cassandra Clare, Meg Cabot, Margo Lanagan and Libba Bray – offers a deep exploration of how and why the walking undead and single horned horse are each capable of launching a can of whoop-ass while living to tell the tale. Seems like a must-read for the fantasy enthusiast or anyone who simply wants to take a break from their eco-troubles for a while 🙂
