Jane Austen’s romance novel, ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ was published in 1813 and is considered a literary classic. It is a story set in Georgian England and is an age-old tale of love and lust--and zombies?

Seth Grahame-Smith has added a little horror to Austen’s work in his newly titled book ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance--Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!.’ You can preorder it at the link below.
