Jane Austin & Zombies Has Arrived


I bought a copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for J., secretly knowing that I could steal it from him when he wasn't looking. Then Steph called dibs on it when we all went out to dinner, and now I'm 3rd in line. Still, I've been sneaking peeks, and I can say this much:

Reader, it's awesome.

These are the stories - and heroines! - I wanted to read about 20 years ago.

4 comments so far. What are your thoughts?

You do know that author has a contract to write more books, right? I read he's working on a biography of Abe Lincoln...the vampire slayer.

I'm a die hard Austenist, and I was horrified by the very idea of these books. Then I read the excerpt you posted. Dammit. Now I have to get it and read it.

Sigh.

Btw, am now ridiculously happy that my semester is winding to a close so I can once again check your blog.

I am excited by this prospect! MsLaurissa - I was pretty horrified by the idea too... until I read that excerpt.

I think it was brilliantly done.
