Remember our friends at Quirk Books, who published Pride and Prejudice and Zombies back in April? Well, it must have done well, because they’re back with the next Austen-classic-meets-classic-monster novel in the series: Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. Author Ben H. Winters told Entertainment Weekly, readers will have this to look forward to:
“A giant rampaging mutant lobster. Octopi with glittering tentacles. And pirates — I couldn’t resist pirates. I studied pirate lore, from R.L. Stevenson to Pirates of the Caribbean.”
It goes on sale September 15. View the book’s trailer (alas, poor Mr. Willoughby!) and let us know if you’ll be snatching up a copy, or if you prefer your Dashwood sisters sans rabid sea monsters.
