Who's Afraid of Jane Austen?

Standard

It’s a few months old, but we were amused when we stumbled across a detective story of sorts featuring a Jane Austen fan who loved her not wisely but too well and some militant Janeites. The author confessed that he wrote it out of a fear of clowns, and of Jane Austen! Well, there’s nothing like facing up to your phobias, we suppose.
