Monster Mash UPs

Is there anyone who hasn't heard about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen & Seth Grahame-Smith? Have you heard that a prequel was released in March? Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith is now available in your local book store or from your favorite online book store.

But did you know that there are a lot more books twisting the classics with monsters? CelticLibrarian at the Alameda County Library has posted a list of 13 Monster Mash Up Type books. Check it out. Some sound perfectly hilarious.
