Jane Austen Versus Zombies

9781594743344_norm.jpgIn June 2009, author Seth Grahame-Smith will re-visit Jane Austen‘s classic novel with a horrific twist: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

The Quirk Books release will feature the original text of the novel with passages of gory zombie action penned by Grahame-Smith, the author of How to Survive a Horror Movie. The book also features 20 illustrations patterned after the book’s original illustrator, C. E. Brock.

Here’s an excerpt from the catalog: “What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers–and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead.” (Via Tor.com)
NOTE: An earlier version did not attribute this title to Quirk Books.
