Pride and Prejudice...and Zombies!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies:
The Classic Regency Romance - Now With Ulraviolent Zombie Mayham!
by Jane Austen and Seth Grahme-Smith

Seth Grahme-Smith takes Jane Austen's text and *modifies* it to be a zombie plot, compare the opening sentences of the two novels:

...Zombies: "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains."

Original: "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."

Amanda and I read through the first page of both texts, and while I don't think I would read this Zombie book, the idea of modifying a Jane Austen book to be a Zombie book I found extremely entertaining and had to share this find with others.
