Pride and Prej­u­dice and Zom­bies. Sense and Sen­si­bil­ity and Sea Mon­sters. Mans­field Shark. Does Austen really need a “Buffy the Vam­pire Slayer” injec­tion? Maybe. I think that if there is any life left in the “Austen Fanfic-Gone-Pro” world, Joss Whe­don should do an epic ver­sion of Northanger Abbey where the gothic novel fan­tasies are real and the pro­tag­o­nist Cather­ine dis­cov­ers she is the lat­est in a long line of slay­ers. It will be the last, and cer­tainly the great­est, of these Austen-mashups.
