LOST IN AUSTEN In this four- part ITV se­ries, a mod­ern- day Austen fan swaps places with Elizabeth Bennet via a mys­te­ri­ous door, then must try to get the nar­ra­tive back on track. Cue cul­ture­clash com­edy!

MR DARCY, VAMPYRE Amanda Grange’s 2009 book sees the newly mar­ried Mr and Mrs Darcy em­bark­ing on a tour of the con­ti­nent. But why do ri­ot­ing vil­lagers keep try­ing to kill Lizzy’s hus­band? Guess…

SENSE AND SEN­SI­BIL­ITY AND SEA MON­STERS An­other Quirk Books mashup re­lo­cates Austen’s 1811 novel to an al­ter­nate uni­verse where an event called “The Al­ter­ation” has turned sea crea­tures – in­clud­ing gi­ant lob­sters and man- eat­ing jel­ly­fish – against hu­man­ity.
