Your turn…

Undead Rising

If the two most feared species of undead were to meet at the cemetery gates, who would emerge victorious from the inevitable dust-up?

It’s a simple question and yet it has haunted mankind through the ages.

It has perplexed philosophers and scholars; it has divided families, tribes and kingdoms. It has ignited countless feudal skirmishes and several minor European wars.

It may be a simple question, but it is certainly not a happy one.

Now — plucky (and inquisitive) Canadian peacekeepers that we are (thanks Lester B. Pearson!) – we’ve decided to settle this ancient dispute once and for all.

How? With an online death-match! (Why? What were you thinking?)

From now until the end of March, we’re looking for your pitches for the next creature to go head-to-head in (un) Death-Match round 4. So send us e-mails, leave us comments, subscribe to our RSS, stalk us on Twitter, and — most importantly — tell us who YOU is the ultimate supernatural being.

About (un) Death-Match

undead

(un) Death Match is the experimental mutant brainchild of Deanna McFadden, Marketing Manager at HarperCollins Canada, and Dan Wagstaff, Online Sales and Marketing Rep at Raincoast Books. Rivals. Enemies.

The blog is a blood-soaked collaboration between HarperCollins, Canadian publisher of The Strain, and Raincoast, Canadian distributor of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (with the kind support of Quirk Books, publishers of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).

We have no lofty aims for this site — apart from world domination (obviously) and/or destroying one another — we just thought it would be “fun”. You know, for kids…
