And Now They’re Writing Fifty Shades–ish Sex Scenes Into Jane Austen

Because Fifty Shades of Grey is an excuse to do just about anything, e-publisher Clandestine Classics will be releasing new editions of Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Scarlet, Northanger Abbey, and, awesomely, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with steamy sex scenes added in.  To anyone who might point out that this idea is the working definition of "fan fiction," well, Fifty Shades started as "just fan fiction," and you see what happened there. Also, aren't you a little bit curious about the old-timey submarine sex? Be honest.
