Quirk Books Announces "Zombies" Follow-up
Philadelphia-based Quirk Books has announced the second title in its Quirk Classics series, which features "mash-up" titles that blend "the work of classic literary masters with new scenes of horrific creatures and gruesome action." "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters" will be released on Sept. 15 and is a follow-up to the New York Times Best-Seller "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."
The independent publisher, known for its "irreverence" titles, announced the title via a book trailer on YouTube. The trailer features main characters Marianne Dashwood and John Willoughby from Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility." Standing on the shores of a seemingly tranquil lake, and on the verge of proposing to Marianne, John suddenly is dragged into the water by a slithering, tenacled creature.
