Jane Austen and zombies
A friend of mine alerted me to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. At first I thought this was a joke, but I checked Amazon, and there is indeed a book by that title coming out May 13, 2009, from Quirk Books (I love the publisher's name, by the way). The product description says, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action." Grahame-Smith is a film and television writer/producer who has blogs over at The Huffington Post and Amazon. I think I'm going to have to check this one out, even though--or perhaps especially because--I'm an Austen fan.
