    Taking its cue from Monster Lit , those faddish take offs like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Classics Mutilated is a collection of 13 stories that combine different genres, literary classics, and fictional or historical characters Yet these tales, dubbed CTRL ALT LIT by editor Jeff Connor owes most of its zing to the computer age, noticeably the technique of the Mash up the mixing together of two or songs or videos into a new whole The various authors in this collection are given free rein t [...]

    This is an excellent collection of a form of twisted pastiches things that take literary excerpts and retell the stories in new ways, with elements added of the supernatural, horror, or suspense Crafted poorly, such stories can be painful and amateurish done well, they are compelling and bring new appreciation to the original work Classics Mutilated is overwhelmingly well done.The anchor story is form Joe Lansdale, taking Huck Finn down a much darker river, one which intersects with Uncle Remus [...]

    Classsics Mutilated is an anthology of 13 short stories that takes some literary classics and mashes them up with a twist of horror, that crosses genres, characters and the lines between them.Mutilated is kind of a misnomer for these stories, there s nothing mutilated or even stitched together about these stories They re a fusion of genres that enhances the originals Like alternate histories in writing a good mashup you have to have a good command of the material, balanced with a respect for th [...]

    There were one or two stories that I had to struggle to get trough, but overall an excellent collection There were so many well written and very interesting twists on the classics in here that I couldn t put the book down I will give my thoughts on a couple of them.Fairest of Them All by Sean Taylor This story was very well written, and I loved the fact that he combined all of the classic females into one story and even made them sisters Outstanding story.Twilight of the Gods by Chris Ryall I ve [...]

    I bought this book for the Mythos aspects of some of the stories Overall a great read, but it did have a few stories that were hit and miss They offer this book now in 4 mini books Huck Finn, Captain Ahab and the Snow white stories were my favorite.

    Dustin
    This is an interesting collection of short horror stories I enjoyed most of them, my favorite in the bunch is From Hell s Heart, though The Fairest of Them All is a close second I could see those two working as full sized novels.

    Kimmyh
    Great mix of stories, featuring Mash Ups of not only books, but some movies as well Awesome Illustrations as well.

    David Barbee
    Favorites Anne Droid of Green Gables, From The Heart of Hell, Frankenbilly, The Happiest Hell on Earth, and of course Dream Island

    Was a super fun read

    I would definitely recommend not reading this It is fanfiction, and much as poorly written as what can be often found online Many of the stories sound forced, mashing characters together with graphene thin plotlines instead of thoughtfully juxtaposing interesting ideas I guess it s my fault for ignoring the title, these stories are indeed mutilated.The Fairest of Them All While I appreciated some depth and detail to the Snow White story, I really think Alice in Wonderland Alice Through the Looki [...]

    This is an anthology of mash up fiction where two works of literature meet, or a historical figure meets a mythological one, or it s a great concept, rife with ideas even with the restrictions of the public domain Unfortunately, it also gets three stars from me solely for three stories, each of which were excellent Anne Droid of Green Gables Lezli Robyn , Death Stopped For Miss Dickinson Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Twilight of the Gods Chris Ryall The rest of the stories, for me, ranged from mild [...]

    I think my hopes were a little too high going into this one I expected crazy hilarity to abound, but it didn t really hit the mark for me I love the ideas and interesting mash ups, but the writing quality is generally poor, and I couldn t get past that Really the moment it completely lost me was in Anne droid of Green Gables when the author wrote that Marilla and Matthew were married No, they weren t They were brother and sister Be respectful of your original sources, please That s just sloppy [...]

    Julie
    There s perhaps a little bit here for everyone A wide range of stories Some I definitely didn t care for at all and some I liked quite a bit Alice vs Snow White was very clever I should hate Twilight of the Gods but it was a somewhat amusing change on Twilight Anne droid of Green Gables was absolutely lovely Little Women in Black made no sense to me, I saw no point and didn t see what the author was trying to do with it Enjoyed Dickinson s relationship with Death, Frankenbilly was amusing, Quoth [...]

    I really set myself up for disappointment on this one Or maybe I ve just read too many really well done books lately But, honestly Alice and Snow White mashed up with pathetic shades of Lovecraft If it had any literary quality at all it might have stood a chance As is, the story was ill conceived and even executed with a style that approximated putting frogs into a blender and forgetting to put the lid on before turning it on The rest of the the stories in this collection just get worse from the [...]

    Preston Postle
    I always love the idea of this type of thing than the execution And, as with all short story collections, the quality varies pretty widely The concept here is that some famous literary character or, in a couple cases, a famous pop icon or historical figure is mashed up with a supernatural element, la Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies which I hated even the stink of zombies can t mask the cloying perfume of Jane Austen for me In some cases this seems perfectly natural Jimi Hendrix and Edgar Allan Po [...]

    I really liked this collection, each short story is different and all are a good mix of a classic with some modern tale added in Weather it s Alice stuck in the mirror in Snow White somebody has to tell the Evil Queen she s beautiful or Huck Fin and Jim finding an elder god on an island in the Mississippi, I found something to like about each tale A few were a little odd, Jim Morison Vs Edgar Allan Poe and the Sid Vicious Voodo Queen story were both quite different, but then again both those men [...]

    Not every story kicked my butt, however a select few really blew me away I m a huge Jim Morrison fan and an even bigger Poe fan seeing them battle it out was freakin awesome Similarly, I am helplessly in love with Emily Dickinson, so reading about her infatuation with another man or in this case, another being was tough for me but made for a great story Obviously there are plenty of other excellent examples in this collection but those two were enough to give this collection a five for me.

    Somer Canon
    I know this genre got kind of played out with all of the zombie stuff, but this book was actually delightful if you re the type of person who finds horror and fantasy delightfulI absolutely am The imagination used in some of these stories was actually 10 different kinds of great and I m sure this is a book that I will read again.

    Sean C
    Couldn t finish it I gave it a try, but so few of the stories were decent I expected to see enough of the original stories or characters in the updated versions, but I found them to be generally weak or uninteresting.

    Elizabeth Inglee-Richards
    I wish I could use half stars This book is 13 short stories of the fantasy mash up genre that is so popular right now Some of the stories had a little to much in the way of mash up and came off as a bit cluttered Some were really great though A fun quick read.

    Jay D
    Some of the stories were captivating while others dragged on, but as a whole it was an amusing set of series.

    Henrik Rostoft
    Stories goes from good to really good.

    Samantha Jungers
    There s definitely something in here for almost any literary preference I just happened to like all of them and really love a few of them Definitely recommended.

    Zoe
    Meh This book has a few decent stories, but most of them seemed contrived, silly, and like they were trying too hard to make the remix trend work.

    Beverley
    Didn t get many of the references, but those that I did, I enjoyed.

    Jamie
    There were some really good stories in this collection, but others fell flat.

    Joseph Anonymous
    Edar Allen Poe is a body hopping undead ghost and other amazing tales no words can allow me to portray the awesomeness in this book.
