This coming Thursday night, if you're in Sydney and feeling like a good tussle, come along and watch Justine Larbalestier, editor (with Holly Black) of the YA anthology Zombies vs. Unicorns
, and three of her contributors (Scott Westerfeld on the zombie side, Garth Nix and me for the unicorns) 'in a short-story feud that pits horned beasts against the shuffling undead', as the SMH's
Planner column puts it.
Come to Kinokuniya (Level 2, The Galeries Victoria, 500 George Street) at 6pm. It won't cost you anything, but you'll need to book, because everyone wants to see this. Ring 9262 7996 to nab a seat.
But be warned, it'll probably get pretty messy on the night.
