I think by this time everyone has heard about Pride and Predjudice and Zombies, and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. And more and more books like that make their appearences now. When I was in Bath I visited the local Waterstones (bookstore) and found this shelf there:
I was quite amazed by it! Apart from the afore mentioned Pride and Predjudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters there was also: Mr Darcy Vampyre, Vampire Darcy’s Desire, Little Vampire Women, Queen Victoria Demon Hunter, Henry VIII Wolfman, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Android Karenina and Jane Slayer. I had never seen such a large collection of these spin-offs before! I have not read any myself (nor do I at this moment really plan to), so I cannot give you my personal opinion of them. But I think it is very interesting though, this whole phenomenon!
If anyone who reads this has read any of those books (or any other book like them that wasn’t in the picture) I would really love to hear your thoughts on it! Or what your opinion is regarding all these spin-offs!
