“It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”

There’s not one, but TWO Jane Austen-inspired zombie novels coming out. How will I choose between “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” and “Jane Bites Back?” While the first includes the original text of the Regency classic, juiced up with ‘all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem,’” the second features “an undead Jane Austen who, after 200 years of writer’s block, takes revenge on everyone making money off of her.”

In other zombie-related news, Texas has suffered a zombie infestation that the authorities cleverly passed off as “hackers from changing messages on digital road signs.” But we know better, oh  yes.

Thanks, Kevin Z and Mary!
