Cover IllustrationQuirk Books, publisher of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, has produced a sequel.

Sense And Sensibility And Sea Monsters promises “60% Austen and 40% additional monster chaos,” while still remaining true to Austen’s original novel.

As our story opens, the Dashwood sisters are evicted from their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island full of savage creatures and dark secrets. While sensible Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars, her romantic sister Marianne is courted by both the handsome Willoughby and the hideous man-monster Colonel Brandon. Can the Dashwood sisters triumph over meddlesome matriarchs and unscrupulous rogues to find true love? Or will they fall prey to the tentacles that are forever snapping at their heels?

Better yet, there’s a promotional book trailer:

The book is due out September 15, so mark your calendars.
