Just found out from Vic at Jane Austen's World, that there is yet another Jane Austen novel being transformed into a horror novel. Norilana Books is about to release "Mansfield Park and Mummies" so as not to be outdone by the success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies I presume.
Quirk Books, the publishers of PP&Z are not resting idly, they are releasing a prequel "Dawn of the Dreadfuls" in March 2010 although while PP&Z was composed largely of Austen's text, the prequel will be winging it! (And don't forget that the movie rights to PP&Z have already been bought so news of a movie adaptation will be coming soon.)
"Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters" is also produced by Quirk books and if you haven't already seen the book trailer, it's below.
Amanda Grange also added Mr. Darcy, Vampyre to the mix.
Vic, has posted earlier on Jane Austen's World with her own suggestions for more possibilities of Jane Austen horror literature. What about?
Rosemary’s and Henry Tilney’s Baby
Willoughby’s Tell-Tale Heart
Dr. Jekyll and Fanny Price
Bride of FrankChurchillStein

Just to be clear, I do not endorse these novels.
I happen to find this whole phenomenon amusing that it's got to this point!
