Jane Slayre Vampire mashup by Charlotte Bronte and Sherri Browning Erwinon April 21, 2010 at 4:59 am
In the fine tradition of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.”
(And I’m totally sure in NO WAY desperately trying to jump on the band wagon of classical mashups between awkward British people and unholy evil.)
Simon and Schuster brings you….
These are hilarious… Oh how I have hated the classics for years. So to see so many of them get the Undead Mashup treatment, warms the inky black pit that I call my soul.
Jane Slayre, our plucky demon-slaying heroine, a courageous orphan who spurns the detestable vampyre kin who raised her, sets out on the advice of her ghostly uncle to hone her skills as the fearless slayer she’s meant to be. When she takes a job as a governess at a country estate, she falls head-over-heels for her new master, Mr. Rochester, only to discover he’s hiding a violent werewolf in the attic—in the form of his first wife.
Can a menagerie of bloodthirsty, flesh-eating, savage creatures-of-the-night keep a swashbuckling nineteenth-century lady from the gentleman she intends to marry? Vampyres, zombies, and werewolves transform Charlotte Brontë’s unforgettable masterpiece into an eerie paranormal adventure that will delight and terrify.
To all the English majors and classical authors out there wailing in frustration or rolling in their graves: Your rage nourishes me like the finest of wines.
