Cover Unveiled for Android Karenina

AK_smaller.jpgToday Quirk Books unveiled the cover to the 512-page mash-up book, Android Karenina. Written by Leo Tolstoy and Ben H. Winters, the book will be released in June.

The book continued the “zombie-fication of literature” trend that has swept publishing since Pride and Prejudice and Zombies became a bestseller. According to the release, the book will bring robotic mayhem to the classic novel:

“These characters live in a steampunk-inspired world of robotic butlers, clumsy automatons, and rudimentary mechanical devices. But when these copper-plated machines begin to revolt against their human masters, our characters must fight back using state-of-the-art 19th-century technology–and a sleek new model of ultra-human cyborgs like nothing the world has ever seen.”

You can brush up on the original in this free eBook.
