“Walking out in the middle of a funeral would be, of course, bad form. So attempting to walk out on one's own was beyond the pale.”
Steve Hockensmith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

“Failure is but the longer road to triumph.”
Steve Hockensmith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After

“A battle cry" Mr. Bennet said "is a warrior's calling card. Only it does not say 'Good afternoon. I have come for tea and crumpets.' It says 'Death has come for you! Flee or be killed where you stand!”
Steve Hockensmith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls
