Austentatious

I’ve never been a Jane Austen fan. I have no desire to relive the Elizabethian era or glamourise a time where a man in posession of a fortune may be in want of a wife. Unless of course the glorification of said time were a gorification – complete with brain eating zombies. Everybody loves a brain eating zombie romance. It’s what made Shaun of the Dead so appealing. From memory it was marketed as a Rom-Zom-Com – a Romantic Zombie Comedy. 

I was no doubt scarred as a child playing too much “Horror Zombies From the Crypt” (download from abandonia) on the Amiga. 

But what’s all this about zombies you ask? Particularly because I started off talking about Jane Austen. Oh yes. If you would prefer Pride and Prejudice retold with the awesome upgrade package – namely zombies wreaking havoc throughout the plot – now you can. Thanks to ThinkGeek.

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.

  1. Oh. My. Gosh. That is very, very awesome. I also love the look of that amiga game.. I haven’t played that, but I used to love agame called Dark Castle on the mac. Gold.

    1. Hi Ben, nice to see you commenting here. I would join a blog book club reading this book – I really would. Consider that a challenge. I guess you could also tick off that long held aspiration to get into Jane Austen… zombies make her so much more accessible.
