Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters is published in 2009. The mashup novel by Ben H. Winters combines Jane Austin’s original narrative with sea monster tropes and is a conceptual follow up to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, released five months earlier by Seth Grahame-Smith. The second book is also a success, after the release is announced via a widely seen YouTube video.
