CONTEST – Zombies vs. Unicorns: Which team are you?

Today, we’re kicking off our week-long feature on Zombies vs. Unicorns — the new short story anthology edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier.

The concept originated on Holly’s & Justine’s blogs back in 2007, when the authors began debating which creature made for better YA fiction: zombies or unicorns?

With Zombies vs. Unicorns, some of the best YA authors around join forces to help decide once and for all.

Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Maureen Johnson, Carrie Ryan, Scott Westerfeld

Team Unicorn: Edited by Holly Black
