Jane Austen Made Me Do It

Announcement of the Random House anthology Jane Austen Made Me Do It was first made way back in May of this year, but I thought it would be worthwhile to remind you all.

The anthology is a collection of inspired by Jane Austen (no vampires or zombies I'm hoping) short stories more than 20, yes 20!!!, authors, to be released in the fall of 2011.  I'm excited to see in the list Pamela Aiden, Syrie James and Lauren Willig.
