    Default OT: Jane Austen and Zombies

    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton--and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. 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. Complete with 20 illustrations in the style of C. E. Brock (the original illustrator of Pride and Prejudice), this insanely funny expanded edition will introduce Jane Austen's classic novel to new legions of fans.

    Fast zombies or slow zombies?

    A man with any character at all must have enemies and places he is not welcome—in the end we are not only defined by our friends, but also those aligned against us.

    You know what the best way to kill a Zombie in a post apocolyptic world is?

    Its called a "Lobo". Short for Lobotimizer.

    Its really just a stick with a blade on the end.

    In a resource depleted world, Ammoless weapons are critical.

    I read about it in my history book, "World War Z, the oral history of the zombie wars."

    Drew, when the zombies hit, I am going to your shop and making some 953 Lobos and a Suigino Crank/Mace!
    we are about to break the surly bonds of gravity and punch the face of God!

    Ahhhhrrrggh. I am immediately going to delete any post that has Kate Bush in it.

    Heathcliff does sleep with the encoffined Catherine, now that I think about it.

    no he doesn't....but he does curse her to have to curse him upon her death which is sorta like a mad scientist making a zombie i guess.
