Zombies Vs. Unicorns

Zombies Vs. Unicorns - Garth Nix, Libba Bray, Maureen Johnson, Diana Peterfreund, Justine Larbalestier, Margo Lanagan, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Kathleen Duey, Carrie Ryan, Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, Scott Westerfeld Anthologies are so difficult to review because they're a mixed bag, ya know? So even though this anthology had a handful of brilliant stories I'd have to say it was all sullied by a short story that contained bestiality. Oh, yeah, and all the zombie romances--between zombies and humans (What the what?!). Ew. And so, so wrong. So wrong.

If I have time I'll review each short story separately.
Why it has taken this long for such a book to be conceived and written is beyond me. I know I've spent many a night contemplating which would win in a battle to the death (or, in the case of Zombies, second death), Zombies or Unicorns.

Seriously though, I really am excited to read this anthology. Call me a dork--I don't care. The book description is incredibly amusing and a lot of my favorite authors have contributed, so I'm willing to bet this book is nothing but FULL OF WIN.
