PadWorx Digital Media, a small eBook app maker with 2 titles so far, has announced that it will be working with Quirk Books to add more original content to create an even better Pride, Prejudice, & Zombies. “We’ve been very fortunate to work on some extremely cool projects,” said Jeffery Alan Schechter, creative director and president of PadWorx Digital Media, Inc.“But it doesn’t get any cooler than working with Quirk Books on such an iconic title.”

Set in a zombie-infested version of Regency-era England, Pride, Prejudice, & Zombies follows Jane Austen’s beloved story of the Bennet family’s life and loves, but sets it against a brain-eating zombie apocalypse.The book was originally published in 2009. The app is due out in Fall 2011.
