Zombie book(s):

Dawn of the Dreadfuls
prequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
by Jane Austen and Steve Hockensmith

Release date: March 23, 2010

Description from publisher site:
In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early-nineteenth century 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!

Robin Hood and Friar Tuck:

Medieval civilization was under threat from the undead.

Double Zombie Wedding in Manchester, U.K.

With inspiration and celebration of the Left 4 Dead 2 video game, two couples wed zombie style.

About Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead 2 is the sequel to the best-selling and critically-acclaimed multiplayer smash from Valve. Left 4 Dead 2 is set at roughly the same time as the original – just after the outbreak that turned most of the population into various zombie mutants. Players assume the role of 4 new “Survivors,” each with their own personality and new dialog. The game leads these “Survivors” through the southeastern region of the US - from Savannah, Georgia thru the bayou country, and climaxing in New Orleans’ French Quarter. The title adds melee combat to the award-winning L4D style of play, with items such as a chainsaw, frying pan, axe, baseball bat, and more.
