Regencies and Revenants

For a Dragon*ConTV bumper this year, I made up names of books that might follow “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”. I had “Beowerewolf”, “Grave Expectations”, “Vampire Fair”, “Jude the Undead”, and “Northanger Abbey But This Time Catherine Starts Fires With Her Mind”, among others. I’d thought I’d covered the waterfront.

Then I saw the announcement from Publishers Lunch.

Sarah Gray’s WUTHERING BITES, a retelling of Wuthering Heights in which Heathcliff is a vampire, to John Scognamiglio at Kensington, in a very nice deal, for publication in September 2010, by Evan Marshall at Evan Marshall Agency (World).

Real life is so often funnier than I can ever hope to be.

  1. What’s extra awesome about that is that Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters is being published by the same house as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The author of P&P&Z is off writing Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.

  2. I just picked up a copy of “War of the Worlds Plus Blood, Guts and Zombies” a few weeks ago, and I just discovered “Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim”

  3. Don’t forget the poetry, like Charge of the Wight Brigade (“Half a leg, half a leg, half a leg, onward!”) and the musical theatre, like Lichs Miserables (“I am a ghoul, I am a ghast/Is Marius undead at last?/I’ve never seen him *urrrgh* and *rrrrrgh*…”)
