another nail in the coffin of literature

Over the jump you can see the trailer for what the publisher describes as ‘the hotly anticipated follow-up to Quirk Books’ international best seller, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies‘. It’s entitled, of course, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. If you want to watch Mr Willoughby torn apart by a giant squid (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?), this is the clip for you. Note, though, that we now have a patriotic responsibility to do the same sort of damage to Australian literature. At the moment, I can’t decide whether to work on Joe Wilson’s Mates are all Vampires or For the Term of His Unnatural Life. Any other suggestions? [Update: let’s make it a competition. Free OL sub for the best entry by early next week]
