No Comment Department

Zombie Mash-up Lands Author Six-Figure Deal - 4/9/2009 8:24:00 AM - Publishers Weekly: "Seth Grahame-Smith's surprise hit from Quirk Books, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, may have been launched as something of a lark, but that hasn't stopped its author from landing a major deal. Grand Central Press editor Ben Greenberg has just inked a two-book deal with Grahame-Smith for a rumored $575,000; Grahame-Smith's first book for GCP, which currently has no pub date, will be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. (A rep from GCP would not comment on the size of the advance.)"

We got that delivered on Wednesday. I may actually read a Jane Austen novel now.
