Fun with the Public Domain

Like chocolate and untainted peanut butter, those goofballs over at Chronicle Books have put two great tastes into one delicious treat. Or trick. They must have been eating a lot of brains lately because they’re coming out with a new Jane Austen novel that can also penetrate the never-dead zombie market.
