    Zombies do make everything better. See the link below to a book called ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’. It includes all of the original Austen text, but it is enhanced by the arrival of zombies. Sure, the original text takes on English manners and moral cultivation, but it is much more exciting when Elizabeth has to fight ‘hordes of flesh eating undead’.

  3. I’ve put my advance order in for the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies video game. It’s for a new platform that has improved motion control and a patented epiphenomenal graphics interface that is literally inconceivable.
