As Halloween approaches, GalleyCat readers are furiously rewriting Varney the Vampirea bestselling vampire novel from the 19th Century packed with purple prose and surreal scenes.

If you entered the contest, don’t forget the deadline is October 31st! We will be spotlighting the remixed entries on our Tumblr page, starting with a great entry that mixed Victorian prose with a Lady Gaga melody.
