Up for grabs: An ARC of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Undead by Mark Twain and Don Borchert. Releases August 2010.

Back cover:
Tom Sawyer. Zombie Hunter. 
Or at least that's the plan. It's Tom Sawyer like you've never seen him before, in a swash-buckling, treasure-seeking adventure spiked with blood, gore, and zombie madness. 
In this expanded and illustrated edition of Mark Twain's beloved tale of boyhood adventure, Tom's usual mishaps are injected with a taste of the macabre, in a world overrun by a zombie virus known in the South as "Zum". The United States is infected with a plague of rotting, yet spry, Zum searching for fresh meat.
In this world, there's no need to whitewash Aunt Polly's fence. Instead, Tom cons his friends into sharpening the fence posts to stop a Zum attack. To escape the constraints of civilized life, Tom and his pal Huckleberry Finn don't have to fake their deaths, just pretend to be Zum. And instead of cowboys and Indians, Tom practices his fighting skills in a bloodthirsty game of "Us and Zum" - and he always wins.
When vicious, self-aware zombies emerge and threaten the town... how will Tom and Huck win, and live to tell their tale?
With all the comedy, romance, and adventure that readers expect from Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer now becomes a new breed of hero - a grade-A zombie hunter.
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Undead

I got this ARC, but frankly I don't have the time to read it. I have to prioritize my TBR lists, and while this one does look interesting, I just don't think I have time to read it before it comes out and I'd like to give someone else the chance. :)

Mangled classics and zombies? I'm a big fan of this stuff. :-)

*grin* I know you are. And it looks fab, I just don't have room on the good ol' TBR. I do plan to read it someday though. :)

When I was a kid I had the biggest crush on Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and Peter Pan. Lol. I was a strange kid. Anywho... I will of course tell you what I think. I'll even send it back to you if it's good. ^_^

Maximum points for blog, twitter, and retweet.

Sure, I'd like to see Tom Sawyer paint white fences red.
