IDW announces 'Classics Mutilated'

Slipping under the radar came an announcement a couple of weeks back from IDW Publishing, home of Joe Hill's comic series Locke & Key among other hot properties: the impending release of a prose anthology called Classics Mutilated.

Set for an October release, the anthology tackles the "genre mash-up" trend that has grown red-hot over the past few years thanks to releases such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Classics Mutilated will feature stories from fifteen authors including Nancy Collins, John Shirley, Rick Hautala, and the writing duo of John Skipp and Cody Goodfellow, all mixing supernatural and horror elements with beloved literary classics.

IDW promoted the book at last weekend's San Diego Comic Con with a limited edition preview featuring Joe R. Lansdale's "Dread Island," a story casting Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn in a new adventure with a Lovecraftian twist.

In addition to the trade paperback edition available in October, IDW has announced several limited, signed and numbered editions, the details of which are spelled out on the publisher's website.
