Zombies + Books of Wonder

I was reading today that the whole zombie v un***rn debate was started by John Green. I’m not going to link to the person who claims that because, you know, I’m not into shaming people. But, EXCUSE ME?!

The mighty zombie versus un****n debate began right here on this blog back in February 2007 with me on the side of zombies and Holly Black on the side of uni***ns. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar or ignorant. Sheesh!

Let’s just say I am not happy that such a slanderous lie is circulating. John Green will be the first to tell you that it began over here.

In less cranky-making news I will be doing an appearance right here in New York City this coming Saturday with a cast of hundreds, including New York Times bestseller Suzanne Collins of Gregor and Hunger Games fame. But as far as I’m concerned the highlight is being on the same bill as Robin Wasserman of Skinned fame. Have you read it yet? If not why not?

You’ll find us here:

Saturday, 15 November, 12:00PM-2:00PM
with William Boniface, P.W. Catanese,
Suzanne Collins, Joanne Dahme,
Daniel Kirk, Dean Lorey, Amanda Marrone,
Ketaki Shriram and Robin Wasserman
Books of Wonder
18 West 18th Street
New York, NY

Who knows? If you join us you might spot some zombies. Or uni***ns. Though I hope not. I hear those single-horned creatures are definitely not toilet trained. I’m just sayin’.

    One day I hope you’ll realize you belong on the same bill as people like Robin Wasserman. I teach piano and have loaned out your Magic & Madness trilogy to many of my students. They’ve all loved your books, and they’ve all asked if you have more.

    Justine, have you been talking to my copyeditor?

    I have read Skinned! Finished it just yesterday, in fact. Blew. My. Mind!. Everyone go read.

    There are so many authors on this bill, there won’t be room for customers! We’ll squeeze in anyway!

    I saw Tamora Pierce last weekend and asked her the Z vs U question. She said she couldn’t decide.

    And Bruce Coville is on the uni***n side.

    Justine, I am worried for you. I have a single vial of unicorn saliva which I have been saving for a very special one-time curing…

    Claudia: Maybe next time I’ll do an appearance near your college. Though most likely you will be home in NYC.

    Lauren: I love you but you are completely DEMENTED.
