* "In this offbeat anthology, editors Black and Larbalestier embark
upon a literary throw-down to determine which is superior: zombies
or unicorns. . . . Without a clunker in the bunch, this anthology
more than lives up to the potential its concept suggests. Zombies
or unicorns? There's no clear winner, unless it's readers." -

"Forget vampires vs. werewolves; the hottest feud is between fans of the fiercely magical horses and the shambling, brain-eating undead. . . . Who is the victor in this epic smackdown? Readers, of course!" - "Kirkus Reviews"
"Who ultimately wins? To reuse an old joke: everyone." - "Booklist"
