Some people were highly annoyed by Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. “It disrespects Austen,” they said. “It is trite and silly,” they said. But we have always believed that the metaphorical ‘they’ needs to relax. We love mashups (works of fiction which combines a pre-existing text, often a classic work of fiction, with a certain popular genre such as vampire or zombie narratives).
This week’s staff pick concerns those mashups that are so ridiculous or so unbelievably tempting that we hope, one day soon, publishers will take note. What about you, LitStackers? What mashups would you love to read? We want to hear from you!
