Quirk announces next Quirk Classic!
They followed up the wildly successful Pride and Prejudice and Zombies with Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters. It must not have been quite as successful as its predecessor — which ended up on the best-seller lists after indie bookstores across the country featured it as a selected title — since the announced title for Quirk Classics 3 is ….drumroll please…. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: DAWN OF THE DREADFULS!
Love the new cover and intrigued by the description, though this seems to be a bit of a departure – rather than doctoring Jane up, they’ve got the author writing a prequel. We’ll have to see how it goes.:
“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!
