The November/December 2011 issue of Jane Austen’s Regency World is now on sale, and should be in mailboxes of subscribers, we suppose, very soon! The magazine will also be available at the JASNA Annual General Meeting next week in Portland, and no doubt if one wishes to subscribe, one will be able to do so there. If not, visit the magazine’s website to get a subscription.
