Now That’s a Mash-Up!

A couple of weeks ago, I discussed how sampling an existing novel and adding new material (ex: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) is not technically a “mash-up” in the traditional sense.  A mash-up is a combination of two existing works into a new work, while a combination of two styles or genres would be fusion, and using pieces of a single work as part of a new work would be sampling.

Well, agent Kristin Nelson shared a true literary mash-up in her “Friday Funnies” entry at the Pub Rants blog: Jane Austen’s Fight Club.
