Taking it back old-school with an actual paper book, we thought this was fun enough to bring to your attention: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Yes, its the Jane Austen classic but modified to include zombies. Yes, zombies and we haven’t had enough zombie action here on Neonpunch:

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton-and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers-and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead.

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.
