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:
