    Dear James,

    This is a nice post on “Zombies”! My name is Peter Ricci, and I am a college student and journalist. Currently, I am writing for ‘Too Shy to Stop,’ an online magazine that focuses on culture and the arts.

    My latest story, as chance would have it, is about “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” and I stumbled across your post while doing research. Here is the link to the story: http://www.tooshytostop.com/index.php/2009/02/25/mr-darcy-wants-to-suck-your-blood/. I focus on the history behind the story, splashing on a little commentary and original sources.

    So check it out! I think you’ll like it. Be sure to leave a comment, also. We love reader input!

    Sincerely,

    Peter Ricci
