Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

They’re Back! Regency Zombies Return in a Prequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies!

by Jane Austen and Steve Hockensmith With more than one million copies in print, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was the surprise publishing phenomenon of 2009. A best seller on three continents, PPZ has been translated into 21 languages and optioned to become a major motion picture. In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early-nineteenthcentury England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naïve young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry. Written by acclaimed novelist (and Edgar Award nominee) Steve Hockensmith, Dawn of the Dreadfuls invites Austen fans to step back into Regency England, Land of the Undead!
JANE AUSTEN is coauthor of the New York Times best seller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. She died in

The Critics Love Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! “A delectable literary mash-up . . . might we hope for a sequel? Grade A-.” —Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly “Has there ever been a work of literature that couldn’t be improved by adding zombies?” —Lev Grossman, Time “Such is the accomplishment of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies that after reveling in its timeless intrigue, it’s difficult to remember how Austen’s novel got along without the undead. What begins as a gimmick ends with renewed appreciation of the indomitable appeal of Austen’s language, characters, and situations. Grade A.” —The A.V. Club

The Critics Love Steve Hockensmith! “Hilarious!” —Entertainment Weekly “Uproarious!” —Publisher’s Weekly “Will keep the reader snorting with laughter!” —Library Journal “Dazzles the reader with colorful language, vivid images, and hilarious asides.” —Boston Globe “Quirky, exciting, and at times surprisingly poignant.” —Los Angeles Times

1817. STEVE HOCKENSMITH is an award-winning novelist and reporter. His mystery Holmes on the Range was a finalist for the Edgar, Shamus, and Anthony awards. He lives in Alameda, California.

Quirk Classics
“Jane Austen isn’t for everyone. Neither are zombies. But combine the two and the only question is, Why didn’t anyone think of this before?”
—Wired

And Coming in July 2010— the Next Quirk Classic

Another Literary Classic, Remixed and Remastered for Today’s Readers.

The Surprise International Best Seller
• Over 1,000,000 in Print • Translated into 21 Languages • Optioned to Become a Major Motion Picture

by Author TBA and Ben H. Winters We can’t reveal the title of the next Quirk Classic, but we’re happy to share what the title isn’t. It is not The Cannibals of Narnia. It is not Jurassic Mansfield Park. And it has nothing to do with zombies, sea monsters, or Jane Austen. Instead, we’re shifting our attention to a new author—a literary legend whose work has been admired by everyone from Vladimir Nabokov and Ernest Hemingway to Salman Rushdie and (hint, hint) Oprah Winfrey. Purists will be offended. Horror and science-fiction fans will be enthralled. Some of the most beloved characters in Western literature will face brave new worlds of monsters and mayhem. And all will be revealed in the very near future!
BEN H. WINTERS is coauthor of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, which was hailed by The Onion A.V. Club as a “sheer delight” and by Library Journal as “strangely entertaining, like a Weird Al version of an opera aria.” Mr. Winters lives in Brooklyn.

Lost States
True Stories of Texlahoma, Transylvania, and Other States That Never Made It

Strange but True Tales of States That Almost Were

Texlahoma: One of many attempts to carve up the Lone Star state.

by Michael Trinklein Everyone knows the fifty winners—but what about the hundreds of other statehood proposals that never worked out? Lost States is a tribute to such great unrealized states as West Florida, South California, Half-Breed Tracts, Rough and Ready, and others. History buffs will be entertained and enlightened by these bizarre-but-true stories: • Frontier legend Daniel Boone once proposed a state of Transylvania on the borders of Indiana and Illinois. (His plan was resurrected a few years later with the new name of Kentucky.) • Residents of bucolic South Jersey wanted to secede from their “filthy” north Jersey neighbors and form their own union. • The Gold Rush territory of Nataqua could have made a fine state . . . but since no women were willing to live there, they had to settle for being part of California. Accompanying the stories are beautiful full-color original maps detailing how these states’ boundaries might have looked, along with images of real-life artifacts and ephemera. Lost States is a quirky reference book for history buffs, geography geeks, and anyone who enjoys lush, fascinating cartography.
MICHAEL TRINKLEIN wrote and produced the Emmy-nominated

PBS documentary Pioneers of Television (2008) as well as The Gold Rush (1998) and The Oregon Trail (1993). His work has been consistently praised in the national media, including USA Today, Washington Post, Parade, Chicago Tribune, and the New York Times. He lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Secret Lives of Great Filmmakers
What Your Teachers Never Told You About the World’s Greatest Directors

Booze Cakes
Confections Spiked with Spirits, Wine, and Beer

Let Them Drink Cake!

At the peak of his popularity, Charlie Chaplin was arguably the most famous man in the world—despite appalling personal hygiene and a repellant body odor.

by Robert Schnakenberg On the heels of Secret Lives of Great Authors, Great Artists, and Great Composers comes Secret Lives of Great Filmmakers—an uncensored look at screen legends ranging from D. W. Griffith and Frank Capra to Martin Scorsese and the Coen Brothers. Readers will discover that • Charlie Chaplin’s corpse was stolen and held for a 400,000 £ ransom. • Akira Kurosawa dreamed of making the ultimate Godzilla film. • Alfred Hitchcock “lost” his belly button during abdominal surgery—and often shocked his leading ladies by flashing his curiously smooth tummy. • David Lynch won’t allow cooking in his home; the odor of heated food disturbs him. With outrageous anecdotes ranging from the weird to the bizarre, Secret Lives of Great Filmmakers is a hilarious behind-the-scenes look at the making of movies.
