Coming soon to Amazon: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! Quoth the synopsis:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action.
_They might be on to something here. There are plenty of books in the Penguin Classics catalogue that could do with a dose of “bone-crunching zombie action”. How about Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s _Love in the Time of Zombies_? Immanuel Kant’s _Critique of Zombie Reason_, with its epic hundred-page discourse on the difference between “braaains” and “braaaiiinnns”? Or John Updike’s _The Zombies of Eastwick_?
(If this trend spreads to business books, I’m crossing my fingers for _Traders, Guns and Zombies_. How awesome would that be?)
