"What do you get when you cross 19th century English
literature with 21st century biological monstrosities and
ultraviolent sea serpents? You get something like Sense and
Sensibility and Sea Monsters -- the latest in literary mash-ups.
"Mash-ups are older than Jane Austen herself. Although the
formats vary -- music, film, literature, and art -- the process is
mainly the same. Elements of different source materials, whether a
classic novel or a widely recognized play, are mixed together to
create a new composition.
"Quirk Books, a small Philadelphia-based publisher, popularized
the genre when they published the New York Times best-selling
literary mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in April 2009
– now planned to be made into a film."
