Inspired by horror films of the past, such as George Romero's 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead, zombies have come lurching back into the forefront of the public imagination with books such as the Jane Austen parody Pride, Prejudice and Zombies, video games such as Left 4 Dead and blockbuster movies like Zombieland. The living dead have never been so popular! We all know that zombies are by no means a modern phenomenon but where did this zombie fascination come from, and where did people like Romero get their inspiration? This book takes a look at all aspects of this gruesome entity and delves into the less well known mythological and historical side of this fascinating subject. This hardcover volume is illustrated throughout in ghoulish, garish full color. This compendium of gore and ghastliness will reveal the complex history of the zombie from its earliest known origins in Haitian Voodoo, through its mysterious mythology to its modern incarnations in graphic novels, film and computer games. In popular culture, readers will find, Zombies have arisen once more.

What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Can she vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you'd actually want to read.
