Fan Fiction, more Odds and Ends
Firstly, after years of complaints fanfiction.net has finally added two categories for Bronte fan fiction. The categories are for Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. Don’t be discouraged by the small number of stories archived there. The vast majority of Bronte fan fiction on the site is still lurking in ‘miscellaneous books’ or films, and even one or two are filed away under ‘Jane Austen.’ I’m not exactly thrilled, knowing what ‘fandom’ does to beloved works of literature. Then again, now and then something really great will turn up. Although this particular site has a reputation for bad writing (thanks to Impairedlogic for the notice about the new Jane Eyre category).
It looks like the BBC’s Jane Eyre 2006 has been pre-sold to Bulgarian television along with quite a lot of other programmes.
The Bronte Parsonage has recieved its seven millionth visitor– who is quite bemused as he had never really been that interested in the Brontes but now he’ll give Wuthering Heights a try.
