Do the Monster Mash(up)


A few years ago, warped fairy tales were the rage. Now, it’s the classic lit mashup. Gotta admit I haven’t read Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies yet, but the whole idea was funny.

Now, like the flow of reality shows, comes the onslaught of para-mashups. Here are a few:

–Sense and Sensibilities and Sea Monsters, by Ben H. Winters (out now)
–Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls, by Steve Hockensmith (out March 24)
–Emma and the Werewolves, by Adam Rann (out now)
–The Undead World of Oz, by Ryan C. Thomas (out now)
–Jane Slayre, by Sherri Browning Erwin (out April 13)
–Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim, by W. Bill Czolgosz (out now)
–Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter, by A.E. Moorat (out now)
–Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, by Seth Grahame-Smith (out now)
–Little Women and Werewolves, by Porter Grand (out May 4)
–Little Vampire Women, by Lynn Messina (out May 4)
–Romeo & Juliet & Vampires, by Claudia Gabel (out August 31)
–Android Karenina, by Ben Winters (out May 26)
–Mansfield Park and Mummies, by Vera Nazarian (out now)
–The War of the Worlds Plus Blood, Guts and Zombies, by Eric S. Brown (out now)
–Robin Hood and Friar Tuck: Zombie Killers–a Canterbury Tale, by Paul Freeman (out now)

Argh. Enough already! I couldn’t make this stuff up. Really.
