Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters??

Quirk Books, the publisher responsible for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (which has been on or near the top LibraryThing’s “Popular this Month” list since May) has announced a new title: Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. I haven’t read P&P&Z yet, but I know Sonya and Tim both enjoyed it…

Ben H. Winters, the author of the upcoming Sense and Sensiblity and Sea Monsters was interviewed in EW’s Shelf Life recently, where he said:

I feel like people who really love Austen get it. Her novels are so strong, so cleverly constructed, so smart and dry, they really lend themselves to over-the-top violence.

Were truer words ever spoken?

Meanwhile, the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Seth Grahame Smith, is now working on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for Grand Central. That one I can’t wait to read.

At any rate, we’ll have to see if we can get some copies for Early Reviewers.
