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

  1. woo-hoo! awesome! now i just have to wait two long weeks for my library to process it and finally send it to me . it takes a while. but, i fully trust it will be worth the wait 🙂

  2. Haha! Team rainbow farts! That’s hilarious! haha *sigh*
    even though I am still team unicorn.

    Have fun in baltimore!!

  3. 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)!

  4. Team Unicorn!!!
    So…there isn’t an insanely awesome unicorn wallpaper? 🙁 Cuz…it’d be insanely awesome, you know.
    Woot!!! Behemoth countdown-timer-thingy!!!
    This is probably starting to bug you, but any Uglies movie updates? 😀

  5. Are you still coming to Birmingham, Alabama??? Oh, and I just finished Leviathan, and I LOVED it!!!!!!!!!! 😀

  6. Yay! Zobies VS Unicorns!!!!!! Hurrah!!!! I can’t wait for the Behemoth countdown clock, but I’m also not happy about it cuz I have to have a broncoscopy that day… Anyway, I like the Zombie wallpaper! Thanks for keeping us posted on all things exciting in the book world, Scott!

  7. 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.

  8. so excited! i will have to request it to my library, cause my friends think their too cool for you and i am broke…lol. eeek! i am team zombie i have decided. unicorns are creepy… not that zombies arent… ok i am going to just shut up now.

  9. 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 🙂

  10. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa it’s out. My internet was out yesterday so I wasn’t able to come on. 🙁

  11. 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(:

  12. 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 😀
    Your my favorite author and I look forward to reading Behemoth!

  13. i loved your storie in the book GO ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. I know youre on Team Zombie, and i still havent read all of it, but sorry to say…UNICORNS FOR THE WIN!!!! ;D
