The Very Best of #MetalFiction

Electric Lit is 12 years old! Help support the next dozen years by helping us raise $12,000 for 12 years, and get exclusive merch!

After combing through over 200 hundred contributions that combine classic literature with heavy metal bands, here are our 41 favorites.
