So I received a zombie-killing kit

or more precisely, a kit full of helpful aids to restore my energy after a long day slaughtering zombies:

It's a clever promotion for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! Copies are only $7 at Amazon and of course would make a perfect holiday gift.

Even better, the kits themselves are also available for purchase. Lizzy Bennet has her own Etsy shop where you can purchase your own Unmentionable Preparedness Kit:

A kit of balms, salves, and restoratives from my apothecary, which you may use to defend yourself against the impending zombie plague. Additionally, a hardcover biography, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a tale inspired by my family’s struggle to defeat the unmentionables.

Includes Bleed-Banishing Balm, Gnaw-be-Gone Purifying Poultice, Reanimate and Perambulate Smelling Salt.
The other major characters also have their own web presences, including OK Cupid profiles, Facebook accounts, Last.fm channels, and more.
