Zombies, Steampunk AND the Apocalypse--how can they go wrong?

OK, this zombie thing is getting out of hand. Publisher’s Lunch just announced that Ballantine is coming out with, “a post-apocalyptic, neo-Victorian steampunk zombie novel in which a girl…falls in love with a rather sweet zombie boy.”

OK—A steampunk Twilight with zombies—and megadeath.

Can you wait for Harry Potter and the Clockwork Half-Zombie Prisoner of the Apocalypse?

Maybe we can bring back chick lit with A Shopaholic Zombie’s Guide to Bustle-Shopping and Scavenging? Or Bridget Jones’ Zombie-Zeppelin: the Edge of Extinction? Arrgghh.
