Nobody Does it Better

Hollywood Reporter had a little ditty about Roger Corman, "the B-movie king," and his crazy hybrid science fiction movies like the forthcoming Dinoshark and Sharktopus!

Oh TV and film industry, have you no shame? I thought.

But of course the book world is not immune to silly hybrids. Just look at the success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, and the latest fare from Ben H. Winters: "Android Karenina."

These are hilarious, but I'm going to go into Old Woman Grumpus mode here for a second and hope that people are also reading the originals.
