NEW YORK — Call them Edythe and Beau.

For the 10th anniversary of her "Twilight" series, Stephenie Meyer is offering a gender swap for those millions caught up in the saga of Bella and Edward.

Little, Brown Books for Young Readers on Tuesday released a "Twilight/Life and Death" dual edition of Meyer's first of four main novels in the best-selling vampire series. The original book has been paired with "Life and Death," a narrative that reverses the author's famed romance between a teen girl and male vampire, instead having a human boy (Beau) fall for a female vampire (Edythe).

According to Little, Brown, the alternate version contains nearly 400 pages of new material. As of late Tuesday morning, the book was in the top 500 on Amazon.com's best-seller list.
