Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Anyone else looking forward to this?

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' author talks about his literary monster mash-up
I've always said the problem with Jane Austen's novels is that there simply aren't enough zombies. But -- finally! -- that situation has been resolved. On April 1, Quirk Books will publish Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an updated, and much buzzed-about, version of Austen's classic novel, which injects her tale of mannered aristocratic Brits with great gory gobbets of undead mayhem.

Apparently, Hollywood studios are already fighting for the rights: see here.

I especially like the author notes:

Jane Austen is the author of Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and other masterpieces of English literature.

Seth Grahame-Smith is the author of How to Survive a Horror Movie and The Big Book of Porn. He lives in Los Angeles.
An illusion--with intelligence! A malignant vision, with a will of pure evil!
