Mash-up: The Last Word

I've added this to my Amazon.com cart

I posted a status update on Facebook earlier today, stating that I’d been to the library and picked up some stories by M.R. James and H.P. Lovecraft. Not spectacular about that, true enough. As statuses go, it’s better than “I’m feeding my cat toenails LOL xxx.”

A friend commented, wondering if I was planning on combining the two; but as it turned out, he misread my status. He saw P.D. James, the crime writer, instead of M.R. James, the celebrated ghost story writer.

This got me thinking of literary mash-ups. Most of us are aware of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. So what could I come up with if I combined P.D. James with H.P. Lovecraft.

How about Shroud for a Reanimator: A Dunwich Mystery, featuring Commander Adam Dalgliesh and his trusty sidekick, Sergeant Cthulhu?

Would you buy it?

Could you suggest a better mash-up?
