Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls – Pre-review hysteria

// March 2nd, 2010 // Uncategorized

All righty. So I’ve got this buddy who I’m very proud of. In the decades I’ve been hanging out with him, he has literally (ha, pun intended) followed his dream and become a published, regularly working author. He’s got his own series of books and has enjoyed a fair amount of success with them. But I was delighted last year to discover, in a newspaper article no less, that he had been tapped to write the sequel / prequel to the enormously successful Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. That book sold over a million copies, made the New York Times bestseller list and is currently being produced as a major motion picture starring Natalie Portman, some little strumpet who previously starred in Leon: The Professional as well as a couple sci-fi movies.

Sooo, the prequel: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls, written by my friend, Steve Hockensmith, hits bookstores on March 23rd. The publishers sent me an advance copy last month and I’ll be publishing my review of it here tomorrow as part of their March 3rd “All-Out-Worldwide-Zombie-

This will be well worth checking out, my friends. Over the last month I’ve really spent some time checking out Quirk Publishing and all their products and they really do it right. The artwork they use is really quite striking. They sent me one of the posters which is now featured prominently in my house and elicits a chuckle from those few lucky enough to see it. So come on back tomorrow, read my review and then go to the Quirk website to win one of those prize packs. (and also pre-order your copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls. You’ll be glad you did….
