Cross breeding literary genres

I have just finished reading His Majesty’s Dragon (UK title: Temeraire) by Naomi Novik. It was lot of fun and I am looking forward to reading the next in the series. The story is basically Patrick O’Brien plus Dragons. This is such a brilliant idea that I am researching other cross-genre breedings. After all, what is Harry Potter but English Boarding School plus Fantasy? And the Name of the Rose is just Sherlock Holmes in a medieval setting. My most brilliant, money-making idea so far is Cthulhu Mythos plus Western.
