Tolstoy Goes Steampunk in "Android Karenina" - io9

Tolstoy Goes Steampunk in "Android Karenina"

The latest scifi/lit mashup to emerge from Quirk Books, publishers of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, is a silly re-imagining of the famously humorless novel Anna Karenina. It's called Android Karenina, and the publisher promises what sound like steampunk cylons.

Again, we seem to be on a trend of remaining the classics of the past with all the elements of class and culture that we don't understand replaced with supernatural elements. I think it's a fine way to make the classics work for the masses. And when I say masses I mean me.
