The premise of the marvelous mashup is simple. Take elemental bits and pieces of history and modern pop culture and remix them. Author Melissa G. Wilson brings readers her own version of this entertaining art form with her book series Masters Mashups. She takes two famous figures separated by time and circumstance, mixes up their stories, and explores the unlikely similarities that present themselves as their lives unfold.
This mashup dives into literary masterpieces of the King of Sonnets and the King of Horror and discovers uncanny parallels in their life stories. What could William Shakespeare and Stephen King, born hundreds of years apart, have in common? You may be surprised. Discover shared themes, eerie connections and key turning points in their careers. Looking for a juicy scandal? You’ll discover that both writers wrestled with debauchery and dark matters.
