I cannot describe how awesome this is. I have suddenly developed a deep interest in a novel that was previously only accessible to girls. Me=happy. Laura, maybe less happy.

I had a sneaking suspicion that was possible.

I suspect that it will be the text of P&P with spliced-in zombie sequences, rather than something clever which would incorporate a zombie theme into the existing storyline. It might be interested to be surprised on this one, but I suspect the genres will mix about as well as the hard-core porn sequences with the tragedy of madness and unchecked power in Caligula.

True, zombies have kind of outlived their relevance with the fall of the USSR, but they shall live forever now as a scourge to classical victorian literature. I wonder what the next big monster movie/societal conflict allegory will be? I mean, terrorists, despite their name, aren't all that scary, so I kinda have to wonder just what mythical boogey man could be linked to them in the national sub-consious. Whatever it is, I hope it will be making an appearance in Mrs. Dalloway. And, while people are going about making this stuff interesting, let me go out on a limb here and suggest that someone add scary elements into another Victorian era novel lacking them, like, say, Dracula.

Of the three works mentioned, only one is Victorian. Austen wrote in the 18th Century; Woolf in the early 20th.

Just to nit-pick.

Someone I know read Wuthering Heights only because someone else I know told him Heathcliffe could be a vampire. I don't know what I think of the idea, but maybe someone wants to get on that. Vampires arwe way more interesting than zombies anyhow. Also, that's Victorian wink.gif

Damn you Civ.... Well, my erotic Victorian toaster fiction wasnt written in the 19th century either, but it was still pretty good...

I have to concur, friend Nathan. Zombies are so last season! These days, dying by flesh-eating bacteria is all the rage.
