Product Details

Praise

“Literary hybrids of Jane Austen novels and zombie stories? That’s so last year. Quirk Books, which released the best-selling novels Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, has seen the future of the mashup novel, and it is Leo Tolstoy and robots.”—New York Times

“Anna’s nightmare, one of the most famous passages in Anna Karenina, clearly anticipates the ‘steampunk-inspired’ atmosphere of Android Karenina… Tolstoy didn’t know about steampunk or cyborgs, but he did know about the nightmarishness of steam power, unruly machines, and the creepy half-human status of the Russian peasant classes.”—Elif Batuman, author of The Possessed, via The New Yorker

Creepy, thrilling, and highly enjoyable!”—Library Journal

“Whenever a truly pulpy trend reaches its apotheosis like this, I can’t help but wonder if we’ll get a new classic out of it.”—io9

Android Karenina lives up to its promise to make Tolstoy ‘awesomer.’”—The Onion AV Club

“Winters, a playwright, librettist, and author of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, connects all of Tolstoy’s dots in the cleverly bizarre world he has created and he transforms a Russian novel into a reasonably demented work of science fiction.”—Galley Cat

“With Android, Winters has given Tolstoy’s beautiful Russian epic a steampunk edge, filling the book with robots, space travel and yes, even a few aliens.”—Techland
