Para-Classics?



Today I bought Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I see Mr. Darcy, Vampire is about to be released (as is Prada and Prejudice). There's also: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim, and, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. (Love the cover!)




What do you think? Fun and creative, or unoriginal and plagiarized?

(And also, do you know if anyone's yet come up with a name for this tiny genre? Para-classics? Super-classics?)

Since I'm between projects, should I write one?

What's your favorite classic? What's your favorite monster? What's your idea for a Para-Classic?
