Victorians, Witches’ Cottages, and Vampires

A few links to share!

x. My dear friend Deborah is trying to raise money to finish her Master’s degree on Charlotte Mew, a sadly not very well-known Victorian writer that deserves far more attention. Please help her out if you can!

x. The British Library has launched an amazing website called “Discovering Literature” and the first things they’ve put up are Romantic/Victorian! There is SO much to explore there, I’m kind of giddy with delight. The Guardian has a good sum up of some of the most fantastic things they’ve posted – many of them Sara and I saw in person when we were lucky enough to visit the library’s “Writing Britain” exhibition!

x. The lovely writer Mary Stewart has died at age 97… sad news, she is the author of an only fairly recently discovered all time favorite of mine, Thornyhold. A beautiful, quietly magical story, I highly highly recommend it.

x. And lastly, well, I clearly can’t resist this ;). – Tilda Swinton, Vampire Reader: Tasty Treats for Literary Goths!
