Jane Austen Made Me Do It: Original Stories Inspired by Literature’s Most Astute
Observer of the Human Heart (Paperback)

For the gone-bonkers fan of all things Austen, you cannot go wrong reading this superb anthology of historical romance fiction. It is like a sampler gift of fine chocolates because
editor Laurel Ann Nattress has corraled the absolute best writers plying the
rich soil of Austen-style sequels, prequels, spin-offs, and parallels. I’ve read
previous stories from about half of the authors and this gives the reader an
idea of their writing styles. ALL of the stories are entertaining and some of
them are superlative. They range in category from fantasies, gothic,
contemporary, comedies, authentics spin-offs, and some that defy categorizing.
It helps to be somewhat familiar with Jane Austen’s novels and principal
characters but perhaps this anthology will create enough interest in the reader
to compel them into reading the divine Miss Austen’s incomparable literature to
see what all of the excitement is about.
