Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters
Classic English romance meets sea monsters and pirates. Sometimes brilliantly funny in the ways the sea monster theme is woven into the tensions of Sense & Sensibility, this is a good book for a weekend houseparty read-aloud. Steampunk fans will enjoy the ribbing Winters gives that genre. Austen S&S fans may groan at some of the ways he interprets the characters, others will be intrigued at the reading, and still others will be thrilled with the zaniness that ensues. My personal favorite rewritten characters here are the minor ones - Mr. Palmer and Lady Middleton especially.
