New Austen-Inspired Book: Short Stories, Not Monsters!
Although many Austen fans have been overjoyed with recent "mashups" like Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies or Ben H. Winter's Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, I am happy to see a more traditional Austen "follow-up" book to enter the market: Dancing with Mr. Darcy: Stories Inspired by Jane Austen and Chawton House. According to a RobAroundBooks internet site, "Dancing with Mr. Darcy is an anthology of twenty Austen-inspired stories, all of which were selected from the entrants of the recent 'Jane Austen Short Story Award 2009,' a competition which marks the celebration of the bicentenary of Austen's arrival in Chawton." Sounds like a book many of us would enjoy!
