Really, this is how Austen ought to be. (Obligatory warning: If this was in the theater, it would probably be PG-13. Please don't give the kiddies nightmares about giant octopi.)
Now, you've probably all noticed the trend toward updating classics with supernatural elements. There's the infamous Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Two new deals from Publishers Weekly are Emma and the Vampires and Wuthering Bites. (So awesome.)
There's just one problem with this. Eventually, we will run low on the traditional supernatural creatures. I predict that in about 10 years, we will see Jane Eyre and the Cannibalistic Injury Lawyers. Not to mention the House of Mirthy Richard Simmons Zombies. The saddest part about all of this is that I would probably read both of those books.
Oh, and I'm making Richard Simmons zombies for a giveaway. No, seriously.
