Last month, we pondered potential new titles from Quirk Books, the creator of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, etc. (I liked Romeo & Juliet & Mummies and Shakespeare and Skeletons.)

Well, now we know the answer. In June, Quirk will release Android Karenina, which the publisher promises to be an enhanced edition of the classic love story set in a dystopian world of robots, cyborgs, and interstellar space travel.” Hmm.

If you prefer a more, ahem, classic version of Tolstoy, don’t miss Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky’s new translation of War and Peace. (Especially readers whose 2010 goal is to read more classics!)

Which will it be for you. . . Android Karenina or War and Peace?
