Pride. Prejudice. Zombies.

Some of you are thinking, "why?" Why defile a perfectly good piece of classic English literature by adding gratuitous gore, ninjas, and childish sexual innuendos?

Well I say, “because it’s there…and because antiquated copyright laws let me.”

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. Coming in May, from Quirk Books.

There is no work of fiction, ever, that would not be improved by the addition of zombies.

Ty, Charley and the Chocolate Factory would be quite disturbing with zombies. Think of them drooling on all the candy. Zombies might make the Sound of Music tolerable.

I think he means venerable copyright laws.

Walter, you don't list an email address here (understandable) so I'm posting off-topic to point you to a carnival (collection of best blog posts on a subject) that you might enjoy:

Thanks, Zora! Cool pictures!

With Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, you have the question of whether the zombies are people-zombies or Oompa Loompa-zombies.

If the latter, it's very scary indeed.
