War Is Hell
My gift for terrible puns finally came in handy recently. I won a copy of World War Z last week by tweeting zombie-related versions of famous book titles for Read It Forward’s #UndeadLit contest and the book just arrived today. Check out the hashtag if you want to see some of the titles people came up with. My personal favorite was “A Farewell to Arms and Legs”.
Anyway, as I only review banned, challenged, or censored books on this blog, I thought I’d just double-check and looked up “World War Z banned book”. And it turns out the book was altered for its Chinese release. Which, while unfortunate for intellectual freedom, does mean I can review the book here. Thus, you can expect to see reviews of Carrie, Blood & Chocolate, and World War Z in the coming weeks.
Also, speaking of world wars and science fiction, those interested in personal accounts of war, PTSD, science fiction, and war stories/literature may want to check out this Kickstarter. They’re raising money for War Stories, an anthology of military science fiction focusing on the future of war and its cost/effect on the soldiers and civilians of tomorrow. They’re also particularly interested in stories from underrepresented groups. Now excuse me while I go rock out to “Zombie” by The Cranberries and reread Herakles Gone Mad.
