Literary Mish-Mash

These are just for Tom, 'cuz he brought 'em on by lamenting the literary trend that began with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and has continued through the upcoming Android Karenina. Just wanted him to see that no matter how bad it is, it could be worse...

•Romeo falls in love with a woman who sells crafts online--Romeo and Juli-Etsy

•Mechanical hero of Scotland: Robot Roy

•Romantic comedy set somewhere over the rainbow: Oz You Like It

•Female vampire among the hillbillies; Lilith ABner

•Willa Cather's story of the first people to sell overstocked merchandise online: O Pioneers

•Gothic novel that shuts down abruptly: Northanger Ab-End

•Novel spotlighting the crazy man of Mayberry: The Importance of Being Ernest

•Mystery novel in which the detective tries to figure out in which person a missing Alien fetus has been implanted: Parasite Lost

•And of course, the tale of a genetic engineer who blends the DNA of a Greek king and a vicious dinosaur: Oedipus Rex
