Review: CSI - The Interactive Mystery

Remember those pop-up books you used to read as a kid and the sheer fun you had make the bunny jump over the fence or the kid deliver jelly beans to the sausage factory?

Why can't adults have the same thing? And I mean for books other than dirty ones?

Quirk Books and Chronicle Books have done just that with the never-ending CSI franchise. CSI: The Interactive Mystery by Sam Stall is a hardcover short mystery story done in the traditional style but with an interesting twist that makes it a fun and unique read. And yes, it still requires reading. Screw Egon Spengler, print ain't dead.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies mini-series just a rumor

Apparently the news of a zombie invasion on your TV screen was just a work of fiction.

Earlier, we reported on the production of a six-part mini-series based on the hilarious (I've just started reading it, Jane Austen was never this funny) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies book by Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith by a British production company. Today the co-author of the book, who has a second mashup title in the works based on the life of Abraham Lincoln as a hard-edged vampire hunter, denied the news. And if you have to ask which author, please have your head examined by something other than a can opener and a very good friend.

The "living" author wrote on his Twitter page, "there's NO TRUTH to those PPZ 'miniseries' rumors" and noted on his Facebook page that efforts are being made to produce the series as a theatrical film. Sigh, I guess the only time we'll get to see anything zombie-related on our TVs is footage of the inevitable religious apocalypse.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies could invade your TV screen

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 3rd 2009 2:02PM
Pride and Prejudice and ZombiesIf you're a fan of sweeping 19th century British tales of lost innocence and moral influences and zombies, God has answered your prayers.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the wildly popular adaptation of Jane Austen's famous novel infused with kick-ass zombie action by writer Seth Grahame-Smith, is being made into a six-part TV mini-series. Groovy! Is there any chance they could convince Keira Knightley to don the frock one more time and pick up a kitana for some serious Elizabethan ass kicking?

The series hasn't scored a network or even a start date since the production has barely made its way out of its egg shell, but the project seems promising so far. Deadline Productions is at the ship's helm who produced a very quirky looking science-fiction cop series called Phoo Action for the BBC. Make sure you wait at least one hour after taking your ecstasy before viewing the trailer.
