That new genre of literature is a mixture of classical novel with fantastic, stunning motives of vampires or zombies. The main aim of this mixtures is to encourage readers to return to classical stories. It is also a kind of postmodern games, in which readers identify motifs typical for the 19th century literature and culture. In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies heroines are perceived as qualified warriors who want to fight with zombies, whereas the monsters only think about how to get and consume brains. In I am Scrooge. A Zombie Story for Christmas, Scrooge, who is resistant to zombie, has to travel around the world to find a cure which defeats the monsters. Zombies’ plague in Roberts’ novel is shown as an epidemic which spreads very quickly.
