The audacious New York Times bestseller everyone’s talking about! Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Quirk) features the original text of Jane Austen’s classic novel, mingled with all-new scenes of flesh-eating zombie action from author Seth Grahame-Smith.

Wow, wish I was going to be in Portland for this one.  This is part of an emerging new genre, Mash-Ups, which have existed for years in the music world, but are now twisting some classic fiction in new ways.    Check out this Guardian article about a Seuss/Shakespeare mashup.
