Overview



All-new versions of your favorite tales

Classics Mutilated
is IDW’s response to the so-called “Monster Lit” trend in mainstream publishing, which takes a beloved literary classic and adds monsters to it. We call our version “Ctrl-Alt-Lit,” which incorporates mash-up techniques in the creation of fresh and unique genre-blending fiction. By using the short story format and a selection of diverse authors, Classics Mutilated not only rescues Monster Lit from its own built-in one-joke obsolescence (where the book’s title tells the entire story), but also re-energizes the field, creating its own genre.?
 
It’s not parody or satire, but way bent fiction done totally straight by some of the brightest talents on the scene, such as Joe R. Lansdale, John Shirley, Nancy Collins, Mike Resnick, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Thomas Tessier, Marc Laidlaw, John Skipp and Cody Goodfellow, Chris Ryall, and Rio Youers.?
 
Notable characters include Snow White, Huck Finn, Captain Ahab, Sid Vicious, Billy the Kid, Emily Dickinson, Jim Morrison, Edgar Allan Poe, Loki, Albert Einstein, and Eleanor Roosevelt. Some of the featured authors and literary works found in these mash-ups are Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, Legends of Asgard, H.G. Wells, Frankenstein, and more. All transformed in ways the mainstream could never imagine, or get away with.? ?
 
Classics Mutilated is available in both print and digital formats. Every story appears here for the first time; each one written specifically for this collection. “Dread Island,” a masterful new novella by Lansdale, anchors the collection.
