More of This Fad

Following the monstrous trend brought to life by bestseller success of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," Del Rey Books just bought Porter Grand's "Little Women and Werewolves"--remixing the classic novel with a wolfish twist.

Editor-in-chief Betsy Mitchell acquired the title through Adam Chromy of Artists and Artisans. Ever since Quirk Books combined zombies and Jane Austen, we've seen more monster mash-up deals: "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." If you want to read the good-old-fashioned "Little Women," Project Gutenberg has a free eBook version.

Here's a description of the forthcoming werewolf version: "In this retelling of Louisa May Alcott's classic, the beloved little women must keep not just the wolf, but the werewolves, from the door...and the kindly old gentlemen next door and his grandson may have some secrets to hide--or share with the March girls."


Y'know, ten years from now, the literary community is going to look back at these books, much in the way I look back at the early nineties, grunge, and how I went there, and think, 'I must burn the evidence, quickly.'
