The Jane Austen Book Club Massacre

This might be fun.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane
Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action.

As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet
English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life!
Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but
she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy.

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

Complete with 20 illustrations in the style of C. E. Brock (the
original illustrator of Pride and Prejudice), this insanely funny expanded
edition will introduce Jane Austen's classic novel to new legions of

h/t to KB and Gary Farber
