Pride & Prejudice & Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

If you love classic literature and aren't afraid to make fun of it, and love traditional zombie mayhem, then Pride & Prejudice & Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith (and Jane Austen of course!) is for you! There's also Sense & Sensibility & Sea Monsters by Ben H. Winters (and Ms. Austen), which I own but haven't had time to read yet.

Now, there's a sequel (more like a prequel) to P&P&Z. The title is Pride & Prejudice & Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith (and Jane Austen). Here's the book trailer for it. Would make an epic movie, too.

Speaking of movies, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies is being made into one, starring Natalie Portman as Elizabeth Bennet.

All books mentioned in this post are published by Quirk Books.

  1. I'd argue that P&P&Z is more of a Zombie Apocalypse than Everything's Deader With Zombies. Serious points for finding a TVT I haven't read, bonus for obfuscating it.
    Your blog is much more professional than most sites, like you're a writer or something.

    -The first time, blogger ate my post, giving me time to surf more of TVT* and I found this: Why you secretly want a zombie apocalypse. Cracked is a bit off, but addictive in its own way. Also, you like Zombies too much!
