The figurehead of the S.S. Lizzy Bennet



Well, it COULD be. Click for a larger version and tell us what you think!

(The Editrix was in Mystic, CT this past weekend for the 2010 Hornblower fan convention, and among other things got to row a whaleboat!)

  1. Hornblower fan convention? As in Horatio Hornblower?! If so, how exciting! I didn’t realizes there was a fan convention geared toward the books, but I’m not surprised!


    • Yes–it’s more a gathering of fans of the movies, though many of us have read the books and nearly all of us are enthusiasts for naval history of all kinds.

    Hello for everybody. I’m a brazilian teacher and I’m a huge fan of Jane Austen. Actually, my boyfriend and me really love her books and the movies based on them. Sorry about my English, I don’t speak English, I just studied it a little. I’m writting because at my school we have a cultural fair and this year it will be about biography. Each class choose someone to show at the fair. My class chose Jane Austen because I convenced them. So, I’m writting to ask you about some help or some magazines, books, pictures, everything you can donate to us. I really wait for your friendship and help. Thank you!

    Just a short thread-nap and your regularly scheduled snarking will return:

    Kathryn and Ms. Kathleen–yes, please do join us for the Hornblower shenanigans next year. We had a truly fabulous time, thanks to the good offices of the Seaport staff. We’re going to Kentucky in 2011. Hey, they have a river! ; )
