There won't be mashups until it's public domain. I suppose you could write things inspired by Gatsby. I don't know where the lines for fair use are.

Just went to Project Gutenberg and looked at the new public domain titles. Some cool stuff!

Ever heard of The City of Beautiful Nonsense by E. Temple Thurston? What an amazing book title! And the writing (1913) is so adorably old-timey. :D http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/41752

ETA: I don't think there are any YA Vampires in the Top 100, are there? I think it's swung to contemporary romance with porkswording.

Oh. Whew. Thought the title of the thread meant someone had written a Gatsby vampire novel, and I was about to heave.
Hey, if anything it's ripe for a sequel by now. I'm sure Gatsby's had long enough to rise again as one of the undead and start seducing highschool girls.

This both saddens me since I planned to add to the YA vampire detritus filling up Amazon, and makes me happy for usage of the phrase "porkswording."
