Pride And Prejudice And Zombies: Dawn Of The Dreadfuls

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies: Dawn Of The Dreadfuls

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!

In what could be seen as a cynical marketing plot to capitalize on the current hunger for all things zombie, Quirk Classic have announced a prequel to the hugely successful Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Dawn of the Dreadfuls will be the first work not to be directly based on an actual Austen novel. Whether this frees up the writing to include more zombies and a contemporary style is unclear but at least this won’t be massacring making awesome a literary classic.

    I was wondering if you’d like an advance of the prequel to review. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls is not on-sale or in stores until March 23, 2010, but I was hoping that you could do a review of it on your blog on March 3, 2010. (You’d be one of the first people to get your hands on it.)

    We are asking reviewers to post their reviews on March 3, 2010, and link to our website where we will be offering the chance to win one of 50 Quirk Classics prize packs. To be eligible to win, each contestant must list where they read the review and post it to our site. This is a great opportunity to find more readers for your site.
