The undead of CanLit

In the footsteps of Quirk Books’ Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and its just-announced follow up, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, Coach House Books publicist Evan Munday wants to know which Canadian book would be best suited for a zombie mash-up. He’s posted some suggestions over at Open Book: Toronto; they include Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town Under Siege by Zombies, Crabwise to the Hounds of Hell, and The Fat Woman Next Door Is Pregnant … and a Zombie. Readers can vote for their favourite, or suggest titles of their own. Some of the best suggestions include For Those Who Hunt the Zombies Down, Who Has Seen the Zombie, and (Quillblog’s favourite) In the Skin of a Zombie.

Getting into the mash-up spirit, Quillblog would like to suggest the following additions:

Headhunter
The Edible Woman
The In-Between Life of Vikram Lall
Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures

See? It’s easy if you put your mind to it.
