Now, we're all about the mixing of high and low culture here, and we do love a good mash-up, but we haven't quite been sold on the book mash-ups, a la Jane Austen's zombies and Abraham Lincoln as a vampire-hunter, and all that.
So we view this news with some excitement as well as trepidation, but we want to hear your thoughts:
In the book, titled Carpathia, a handful of Titanic passengers are rescued by a ship full of vampires—and the book will be out just in time for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking.
So—good idea, or freaky marketing? Or both?
