Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters

Sense and Sensibility and Sea MonstersI, like many normal people, love Jane Austen. Her words are brilliant and bring everything to life. I can’t get enough of it. Shameful I know. Scary Jane, who professes to love all things scary and unusual actually loves something normal. Then in April of this year I was rewarded for my love of all things Jane Austen. The book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was released. This of course just thrilled me to pieces. I no longer had to hide my love of Jane Austen and hang my head in shame. I could shout it from the rooftops. It married my two favorite things and it was hilarious to boot. I was finally hip. Now, I am thrilled to announce they are releasing Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters this Tuesday, September 15th. I am perfectly prepared that this one may not be quite as good as the first one. Just the same I will be standing in line to purchase it with all of the other closeted Jane Austen worshipers. Now, if only they would release Mansfield Park Vampires.

Vampire Con 2009

Vampire Con 2009If you are a vampire worth your blood you were at the first Vampire Con in Hollywood this past weekend. If you weren’t, you are a loser and shall be stripped of all your vampire benefits! I was not there, but I am not a vampire, so I think I am okay. I’ve been to so many conferences this year that I thought I’d wait until next year to go. There were so many vampires at Comic-Con that I thought I had already been anyway. A quick little article about what kinds of things went on at the Vampire Con can be found here. The most interesting thing to come out of the conference was the announcement (also announced at Comic-Con) of the first sequel ever to Bram Stoker’s Dracula, called Dracula: The Undead. It was written by Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker’s Great-Grandnephew, and screenwriter/ historian Ian Holt. It will be released on October 13, 2009. Overall, I think more vampires would have been there if all of the festivities had been held after dark. It’s not easy finding your way to the conference through the sewers in Hollywood. Not everyone can afford to have black limos with darkened windows deliver them to the front door!
