The New York Times best seller is now a major motion picture starring Lily James and Sam Riley, with Matt Smith, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey.
Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is an audacious retelling of English literature’s most enduring novel. This expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem begins when a mysterious plague falls 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. It’s the perfect read for literature lovers, zombie fans, and anyone who loves a reanimated Austen.

From the Foreword by Seth Grahame-Smith:
“Jason Rekulak was the only editor I’d ever worked with. So when I heard him say, ‘Hey Seth, it’s Jason,’ I knew something was up at once. This was the voice of a man possessed, a man struck by a lightning bolt of inspiration. That or he’d suddenly developed a raging OxyContin habit. ‘OK. . . . I just need you to listen,’ he began. Just listen, and tell me if I’m crazy. All I have is a title. It’s just a title—but I can’t stop thinking about it. Just promise me you’ll wait a minute before you say anything, OK?’ I promised. The next words out of his mouth were Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.”
“It’s worth noting that Jason Rekulak and I have yet to meet in person (ah, the Digital Age). When we finally do, I’ll shake his hand and thank him for that phone call. For his lightning bolt of inspiration. For the five words that changed my life. And then I’ll eat his brains.”
“After rereading the original, I re-reread it, making notes in the margins, jotting down ideas, and working out the logistics of weaving a zombie uprising into one of the most celebrated novels in the English language.”
“Eight months later, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was an international best seller, and we all looked like geniuses. Best of all, the book was (mostly) well received. If there was any consistent criticism, it boiled down to ‘We want more zombies!’With this new edition, that’s exactly what you get. I’ve gone back and added new words, lines, paragraphs, and all-new scenes of ultraviolent mayhem throughout. There are also some incredible new paintings by Roberto Parada. Throw in a faux-leather binding and a new cover by Quirk’s Doogie Horner, and you’ve got yourself one helluva collector’s item or, at the very least, something with enough heft to be used as a weapon in the event of a zombie uprising.”
