Celebrating Five Years of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

This month, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies turns five. A landmark book for Quirk, it was an enormous bestseller that took the literary world by storm and invented a new genre. The mashup! 

To celebrate, we had Thom Dunn, a frequent Quirk contributor and blogger for places like, write up a three part editorial about the history of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. In his piece, he talks about the origins of the book, Quirk's venture into the mashup genre, and our jump into fiction.
