Jane Austen Anyone?

The recent news that an unfinished Jane Austen manuscript sold at an auction for $1.6 million is no surprise to her fans.

Her literary legacy is quite lucrative, spawning no end of creative works including movies (such as Clueless, based on Emma), television shows, and even video games.

Books that take up Austen’s mantle are legion—there are sequels, prequels, mysteries, romances, and all manner of re-imaginings. Some try to remain faithful to Austen’s writing style and historical time period; others attempt to play up the kind of situations that people in Austen’s day did not discuss openly.
