Is This Cool or What?

I can't remember the last time I got as excited over the concept of a book as I have this one:

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!

Yes, it is a real, honest-to-god book (it's not an April Fool's prank), and I will get my hands on a copy this weekend! My only complaint is that I actually liked Pride and Prejudice -- I would have been much happier to see Wuthering Heights get the zombie treatment. How cool would it have been for Edgar to come back from the dead and completely devour both Catherine and Heathcliff?

Just to provide some background information regarding myself, when I read Wuthering Heights back in college for a 19th century British novels course, I actually proclaimed during an in-class discussion that halfway through the book I was hoping for a nuclear explosion to suddenly rip through Thrushcross Grange during Catherine's and Heathcliff's vist just do I didn't have to read anything more about the two of them ever again. Yes, I really hated them and the book that much.
