Successful for the Porn Industry, Why Not for Horror Books

I just finished reading Quirk Has Unlikely Hit with Jane Austen-Zombie Mash-up. The porn industry has been retitling Hollywood films for years, so I’m surprised re-writing classics with a horrific twist hasn’t been caught on sooner.

Sure, for major publishers it’s all about making money, and we the public have settled for what they produce. However, I get irritated when authors don’t even have to try to be unique anymore to get a huge book deal. Book after book are published, reusing the same old monsters, and we buy ’em. Now we’ll get them with the same old classic novels. But they certainly won’t be books you read and say, “WOW!”
