Jane Austen’s Regency World Magazine July/August 2010 Preview

Hot off the presses is the July/August 2010 (No 46) edition of Jane Austen’s Regency World, the official magazine of the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, England and the ultimate Austen reading indulgence. The highlight for me will be Maggie Sullivan’s article on Austen or Bronte. (the ultimate literary throwdown, right?) Here are the featured articles:

The Bath Bugabo, or little green man (cover story):

Cathryn Spence, from the American Museum in Bath, writes about G. Bond an eccentric man who was ejected from balls in both Bath and Brighton for allegedly staring at ladies.

Austen or Bronte?:

Maggie Sullivan, editrix of AustenBlog.com, discusses media suggestions that ‘Bronte is the new Austen’

Where there’s a Will:

A look at the final wishes of some of Jane Austen’s family

Only a Grandmother:

Maggie Lane talks about Jane’s treatment of grandparents in her writing

Queen Adelaide:

She gave her name to an Australian city, but what do we know about the wife of King William IV?

Smuggling ways:

A dangerous occupation, but a thriving trade in Georgian times

Pride & Progress:

Reading Jane Austen’s books on an e-reader
