Victorians (and Americans) vs. Vampires, Werewolves, Zombies, and Sea Serpents!

The 19th century has inspired a number of genres of literature. Two modern genres that revisit this time period are Steampunk and Paranormal. Last month we looked at Steampunk here, so now let’s explore the Paranormal.

In a world where supernatural beings are commonplace, sometimes we fight them:

Queen Victoria : demon hunter / A.E. Moorat

 

 

 

 

Abraham Lincoln : vampire hunter / Seth Grahame-Smith

 

 

 

 

The adventures of Tom Sawyer and the undead / Mark Twain and Don Borchert

 

 

 

Sometimes, it is much more complicated:

Sense and sensibility and Sea monsters / by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters ; illustrations by Eugene Smith

 

 

 

Pride and prejudice and zombies : the classic Regency romance — now with ultraviolent zombie mayhem! / by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

 

 

Android Karenina / by Leo Tolstoy & Ben H. Winters ; illustrations by Eugene Smith ; translated by Constance Garnett

 

 

 

And sometimes, we live and work together:

Soulless : an Alexia Tarabotti novel / Gail Carriger

 

 

 

 

Changeless : an Alexia Tarabotti novel / Gail Carriger

 

 

 

 

Blameless : an Alexia Tarabotti novel / Gail Carriger

 

 

 

 

Heartless : an Alexia Tarabotti novel / Gail Carriger

 

 

 

 

Timeless : a Alexia Tarabotti novel / Gail Carriger

 

 

 

 

Gail Carriger, author of the Parasol Protectorate series above, will be coming to the library on June 23rd at 3pm. She will read from the novels above and be available for questions afterwards. No sign-ups required. Please come and meet her.
