Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

All kinds of magical things are happening these days.

A plane crashes except everyone is safe and then it turns out the hero-pilot is a library user, and the library waives his fees (smart move there, library) and buys a new book in his honor, and it’s all celebrated on the national news, which means Folks Somewhere are Doing Their Job.

Then it turns out there is a book that marries the best of all possible worlds: “the original text of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone crunching zombie action.”
