Prize:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies:
Dawn of the Dreadfuls
by Jane Austen and Steve Hockensmith - my review

Release date: March 2010

Description from publisher:
In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early-nineteenth century England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naïve young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry. Written by acclaimed novelist (and Edgar Award nominee) Steve Hockensmith, Dawn of the Dreadfuls invites Austen fans to step back into Regency England, Land of the Undead!

*** updated 2.6.10 ***
Quirk Books has agreed to send a lucky winner a copy of this mashup for my giveaway! So, there will be 2 winners!
Thanks Tiffany!

  31. I'm sooooo curious to read this one because it's a whole new book rather than just a modification of Jane Austen's original. And the trailer is freaking awesome!
