Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
320 pages; Quirk Classics

Jane Austen might turn in her grave—or possibly rise from it—on reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Quirk Classics), a merry monstrosity devised from Austen's own iconic text, with tweaks and additions by Seth Grahame-Smith; e.g., "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains." Elizabeth Bennet, whose rapier wit is matched only by her swordplay, takes on the arrogant Mr. Darcy as well as the insatiable undead. You go, ghoul.
