Pride & Prejudice & Zombies may be the single best argument on approval of fanfiction that I've ever read. The zombie lore is woven into Austen's text pretty seamlessly, along with some other humorous references. The Bennets as Shaolin-trained slayers puts a new spin on the feminist themes, and the censure of the wealthier, Japanese-trained zombie-vanquishers provides humor while still showing the divided social-class system Austen once poked fun at. I really enjoyed the book, and am excited to see what the movie adaptation holds, if it goes through. ^_^
