Quirk Books follows up the success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies with Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winston, releasing September 15. Hopefully the book won’‘t suffer from the sequel curse.

Her Fearful Symmetry
by Audrey Niffenegger

Releasing: 29 September


Audrey Niffenegger’s sophomore attempt to The Time Traveler’s Wife. A hard act to follow, to be sure. This Chicago native takes her story telling skills to London to tell a ghost story.

Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues: True Stories of the Unsavory, Unwise, Unorthodox, and Unusual

(Scribner)
Releasing: 29 September


This looks to be a collection of bone chilling tales with a dark humorist twist.

A literary/pulp mashup. At its best? That remains to be seen. Author Seth Grahame-Smith must have some real cajones to tamper with a such loved classic as Pride and Prejudice by adding a Zombie story line. This book trailer has a b-movie quality to it; a nod to the cinematic genre, hopefully. This will book could be a great as Danger Mouse’s mashup of the Beatles’ White Album and Jay-Z’s Black Album. Or as far-fetched as the stoner mashup of The Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.
