Classic horror

jane-austen-zombiesSo has everyone heard about the new publishing trend of turning a classic book into a horror novel? Quirk Books has published Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which is mostly Jane Austen’s story with zombies thrown in by author, Seth Grahame-Smith. Can you imagine Elizabeth fighting zombies while beguiling Mr. Darcy? I’ll be interested to know what a true Austen fan thinks of it.(Stacey?)   

I think I’m going to try my hand at it. I mean if half of it is written before I even start then, well, I’m halfway there.  So I think I’ll start with “Oliver Twist-ed”…or maybe the “Screwtape Letters and the Thumb Screw.” I can already hear publishers knocking at my door!
