Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

pridezombiesQuirk Books, publisher of the surprise bestseller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, is set to announce their next mash-up at midnight tonight.  You can be the first to know the new title by adding them to your facebook friend list, or see the book trailer tomorrow on YouTube.  You can even print two different posters on their website in celebration of the book’s success.

Anticipation for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies started in early February with a blog post in the New York Times, and began building with reviews and plugs in news papers all across the US and UK.  With it’s release in early June, it became an immediate success, reaching No. 3 in the New York Times bestseller list.

Author Seth Grahame-Smith, a film producer and author of How to Survive a Horror Movie and The Big Book of Porn, took the plot for the novel at the suggestion of his editor at Quirk Books, Jason Rekulak.  Grahame-Smith will not be participating further in the mash-up series, but according to interviews, one of his follow-up titles, if not the next, will be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. He will make his debut into comic books with Marvel Zombies Return: Hulk with artist Richard Elson.  Below is a very insightful and entertaining interview with him for the Authors@Google series.
