Ulysses Press and Marsha Altman are thrilled to announce an anthology of new Pride and Prejudice stories in The Road to Pemberley.
(Arriving July 1, 2011)
About the Project
Including over a dozen stories that feature the popular characters and familiar settings of Pride and Prejudice, this new anthology celebrates Jane Austen with a series of brilliant adaptations. Austen’s masterpiece has spawned an entire genre of literature, and The Road to Pemberley brings together the best of the best from published and new writers alike to create a cornucopia of Darcy-and-Elizabeth intrigues.
England during the Regency era, with its country estates, horse-drawn carriages, and formal balls, continues to captivate modern readers, and The Road to Pemberley brings this fabled world to life in all its glory. Each story casts Darcy and Elizabeth in their first full year together at Pemberley, where the storied husband and wife find themselves in the throes of the newlywed experience, navigating a host of new social quandaries, old personal dilemmas, and exciting adventures.
About the Anthologist: Marsha Altman is an author, historian, and expert on all things Jane Austen. Her novels include The Darcys & the Bingleys, The Plight of the Darcy Brothers, and Mr. Darcy’s Great Escape. This is her first Jane Austen anthology.
About the Publisher: Named as one of Publishers Weekly’s ten “fastest-growing small publishers,” Ulysses Press is reinventing the relationship between reader, author, and publisher. Beyond market-driven, Ulysses Press focuses on highly targeted niche
groups, like Jane Austen fiction, that are often overlooked by corporate-owned New York houses. A leading publisher of fiction based on the beloved stories of Jane Austen, Ulysses has a celebrated and growing line of Regency books, including The Phantom of Pemberley, Darcy’s Passions, The Lost Years of Jane Austen, Sanditon, Vampire Darcy’s Desire, Darcy’s Temptation, and Captain Wentworth’s Persuasion.
My short story, “The Pemberley Ball,” is among those chosen for this anthology. (The titles above in boldface are my Austen-related novels.)
