Quirk Classics, publishers of both Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters is getting geared up to release their next satirical work, this time taking aim at Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina with the aptly named Android Karenina. Ben H. Winters retells the classic through the eyes of, well, pretty much a geek. Including plenty of sensual android action.
I never actually read Anna Karenina so I literally have no idea how Winters works androids into the literature, but with the track record of Quick Classics, I’m sure it’s entertaining. Plus, there’s something about a C-3PO female unit wearing a cleavage-bearing dress. Something uncomfortably attractive. Get your own copy on June 8, 2010.
