"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" was published in January 2009, and since then, it's set off a literary monster mash-up craze. The book, which paired original prose from Jane Austen's classic with some new additions which made Austen's characters out to be zombie hunters, was a surprise immediate success, with over a million copies in print.

Some of them seem just as delightful as the original, especially the ones that have awesome book trailers, but how much is too much? Should the trend continue, or are you over the craze and ready to see something new?
