You add a little zombies to the world of Pride and Prejudice and the world goes wild. These days, creepy creatures and classic figures are going hand-in-hand, thanks to the seemingly non-stop love of vamps and chills. Hell, we even have Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter coming our way. But a hunter is no slayer, and while the pun is apt, this next re-jig might get the mash-up world in a little trouble. Sherri Browning Erwin's Jane Slayre will hit shelves on April 13, and Production Weekly's Twitter feed reports that her reps are currently busy in Hollywood with a spec of her mash-up.
From Amazon: "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." The book certainly plays it close to the famous slayer. While there's no long line of vamp fighters -- one girl in all the world -- she is getting taught by a ghostly uncle (aka Watcher), and does go up against more than fangs, enjoying a little slaying with the zombies and werewolves as well.
And we thought fighting in high fashion was silly. Move over prom dress -- it's corset time!
