• Unlikely hit Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has led to a mania for Jane Austen-monster mash-ups. Here, a sampling of lines Miss Austen would be surprised to read:

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”

MR. DARCY, VAMPYRE “A deep fissure opened between Darcy and Elizabeth … until they were separated by a sea of molten lava.”

SENSE AND SENSIBILITY AND SEA MONSTERS “‘Willoughby!’ cried Marianne in terror of the advancing wedge of warlike crustaceans…. The lobsters screeched louder …”

VAMPIRE DARCY’S DESIRE “The moment the blood touched his lips, something inside him changed … His eyes closed as if savouring a fine wine.”
