This Is Getting Ridiculous – War of the Worlds Has Been Rewritten with Zombies

Seriously, enough is enough, people. Slapping the Differently Animated into random historical works of fiction that are well in the public domain has gone from novel to quaint to outright derivative hackery.

Now we get H.G. Wells’ ‘War of the Worlds’, but with Zombies:

It was in 2009 that Seth Grahame-Smith released “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” through Quirk Books. Within months, zombie books were thicker in stores than the Undead in “Night oif the Living Dead,” and while Quirk continued to grind out sequels and prequels, others got into the act.

Now, Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, delivers a new title for its “Blood Enriched Classics” series: “The War of the Worlds, Plus Blood, Guts and Zombies” with Eric S. Brown taking co-author credit with the dead (but spinning) H.G. Wells ($15 paperback).

‘Blood Enriched Classics’? Seriously?

Precisely how many of these books, which to my knowledge are invariably Anti-Zombie, can people POSSIBLY want to read?

It just isn’t funny anymore. Cut it out.
