September 21st, 2010

People have been seeing ZvU in stores for a few days now, because the contagion cannot be contained!

    Team zombie unicorn XP Now that’s the best team ever.
    I can’t wait to pick up ZvU and Behemoth (the countdown has been on for months, after all, no official timer necessary)!

    I saw the book on the bookshelf yesterday! But I had no money on me AND I was looking for Libba Bray’s book “Going Bovine” for my friend’s birthday. Not in stock? Angry! And Leviathan wasn’t there either! But I have a feeling my friend (that same friend) wanted to buy it for my birthday (last month) and he realized the bookstore didn’t have it so he had to order it. He’s now waiting for it’s arrival so I’m super excited. I hope that’s what he got me for my birthday because I haven’t had the opportunity to get my hands on the book yet.

    I am so excited to read this! However, I’m going to reread Leviathan, then read Behemoth, then read Zombies Vs. Unicorns. Behemoth is just higher on my list of reading priorities :)

    You made my day! You used my name! :DDD
    I never thought I’d see it in a book, and spelled the same!
    God, I love you! And (SPOILER) I was immune! o;
    It was perfect. ‘Specially since Zombies are my favorite mythical creatures hands down.

    Anyways, thanks. I think that’s the happiest I’ve ever been reading a book (or err, short story) and I can’t wait for Behemoth(:

    Love your story in zombies vs. unicorns! I have to say the Unicorn side ended up winning in the end for me :[ I was hoping the Zombies would but your story still shined by itself :D
    Your my favorite author and I look forward to reading Behemoth!
