I know what I am giving for Christmas

From Chronicle Book's description:

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.

Release date is sometime in April.

Another reason why Public Domain needs to kick in at some point. Other creators with new voices and fresh eyes need a chance to chime in on these stale, hackneyed properties!

We've heard what Jane Austen has to say about her characters. Well now it's time to hear what the rest of us have to say! HAVE AT IT, FELLOW CREATORS!

At first I was about to say HEY! WHAT A RIPOFF!!:

But in view of my whole stance in the previous hands are tied. Pride And Predator, you have my blessing.
