Jane Austen’s much beloved matchmaking character Emma Woodhouse has been portrayed by a wide variety of actresses including Alicia Silverstone, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Beckinsale, the latter of whom would probably fare best in the story’s latest incarnation: Emma and the Werewolves.
The novel comes out December 8th (it’s available now for the Kindle) from Coscom Entertainment, a small press publisher that focuses on superhero books, comics, and monster-themed fiction. The plot for Emma and the Werewolves is described as follows:
As the ever headstrong Ms. Emma Woodhouse schemes and plots as matchmaker, a dark and deadly terror descends upon Highbury. A series of bestial murders fills the residents with fear as the ever mysterious Mr. Knightley leads a secret life, unknown to all, combating evils not of this Earth.
Carnage and destruction reign throughout the land, and though the residents of Highbury try to attend to day-to-day matters as civilly as possible, each cannot help but wonder what lurks in the shadows and if it’ll be coming for them next.
Coscom has taken the whole literary classic/horror mash-up craze to a new level with not just one or two, but SIX, more such books either currently in release or coming soon. They are:
It might be a case of over-saturation … or just giving the people what they want. In either event, it appears to be a trend that’s definitely not going away anytime soon.
