First: Team Zombie, OBVIOUSLY! But unicorns weren't too crappy, either. As always, some stories are better than others. But then again, some are great. I'm kinda starting to grow to like short stories, it appears. This battle, for instance, could not have been made without them. So hooray for short stories and coming up with a purpose for them! ( )

Some great, some funny, some so-so. ( )

Definitely a book for high school age and up readers. Several stories are extremely violent and sexual, but humorous too. The running commentary at the beginning of each story between Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier helps set a more lighthearted tone. The collection is pretty evenly written. Maureen Johnson's Children of the Revolution and Alaya Dawn Johnson's Love Will Tear Us apart were particularly disturbing. My vote goes to Team Zombie. ( )

I sometimes have a very hard time with short story collections. Mostly because there are always a couple of stories that really just kind of suck. But there wasn't a single story that sucked here. Were there ones I liked more then others, absolutely but really there was no bad here. I also loved the banter between each story. It was funny and I felt like they offered good ways to think about zombies and unicorns and their history. Each story is labeled as either Unicorn or zombie so only have to read your side if you want. But I strongly reccommend reading it all because there is no bad here.

Unfortunately I was not able to pick a side having liked Unicorn and Zombie stories equally. My favorite zombie stories were Cold Hands by Cassandra Clare and and Prom Night by Libba Bray. My favorite unicorn stories were Princess Prettypants by Meg Cabot and The Care and Feeding of Your Baby Killer Unicorn by Diana Peterfund. ( )
