Did people know this type of book exists?

Last week I went to “Supernova” a “pop culture expo” in Melbourne. It’s basically an excuse for a lot of vendors of sci-fi, fantasy, vampire and zombie – related apparel, games, outfits, and comics to sell stuff to people who turn up in strange costumes. There was even one guy dressed up as Alex from A Clockwork Orange.
But I found a literary genre I didn’t know existed.
Some people have taken the classics of literature and expanded them to include zombies, werewolves and other horror elements.
For example “Sense and Sensibility and Zombies,” by Jane Austin and Seth Grahame Smith, which starts off, “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Zombie in possession of  brains must be in want of more brains.” Apparently it sold so well he’s written two sequels.
I also saw “Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.”
Did other people know this stuff exists, or have I been living under a rock the last ten years?
