Last week I highlighted novels mashing together Jane Austen with monsters of one sort or another, adding a bit of fun with two titles fabricated by me. Hehe…. That post is here: Austen Monster Mash and the fake titles & authors were #3 The Haunting of Pemberley by Elizabeth Drummant and #12 Anne Elliot: Vampire Hunter by Sam Morrison. So those two options are open for someone to write!
Not too surprisingly, Austen isn’t unique in the realm of classic literature or historical figures receiving the same treatment. Worlds of horror and sci-fi are colliding too! Below are titles of novels on the shelves today, from Bronte to Shakespeare, with zombies, robots, werewolves, and more wreaking havoc.
