Publisher releases sexed-up editions of classics
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Now we know how Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson really felt about each other.
British e-publisher Clandestine Classics is releasing sexed-up editions of Sherlock Holmes, “Pride and Prejudice” and other classics, with erotic passages woven into the traditional texts. That means Mr. Darcy “buried inside the depths” of Elizabeth Bennet in “Pride and Prejudice” and Dr. Watson declaring his “joy of knowing other men.”
Clandestine managing director Claire Siemaszkiewicz (sih-MASS’-kuh-wihtz) says she has always been drawn to “the underlying sexual tension” in older novels. The new editions were started before the “Fifty Shades” phenomenon, but the release date was moved up to July 30 in hopes of attracting fans of E.L. James’ erotic trilogy.
