Jane Austen Novels Reimagined in Different Genres, From Horror to Fantasy

I love playing the “what if” game with classics. Switching up the plots, adding surprise twists, playing with characters—all without being sued for copyright infringement and defamation by their authors, all of whom are super dead and can’t say a word against me.
