"Although 'mash-up' is a phrase that originally referred to unlikely or unexpected musical blends, it's a pretty useful term for anything that takes two elements and puts them together for the mostrar mais sheer pleasure of seeing them side by side. It can be a combination of genres, or of beloved characters, and it's hard to say which works best: the conjunction between things that always should have gone together (Doctor Who meets Sherlock, anyone?), or the delicious contrast of things that you never expected should (mmmm, peanut butter and lemon curd). Science fiction and fantasy are both areas in which the mash-up can be especially rewarding, and – as you'll see from the list – comic books have been doing it for longer than the term mash-up has been around. My novel Dragon Frontier shows how simple and effective the mash-up can be. I've always loved stories of the Wild West, and I've always loved mythical beasts. How much more fun would it be to have a story where those two things meet head on?"
