Earlier in the year I had the good fortune to have a Jane Austen parody I’d written accepted for inclusion in the new anthology, Bad Austen: The Worst Stories Jane Never Wrote, by Adams Media. Well, it’s out now and my story, “The Horrors of Expectation,” is but one of many Bad Jane tales included.

Here’s what the publisher says of the book: “Imagine Mansfield Park set on the Jersey Shore. Or Mr. Darcy heading up the Starship Enterprise. Or Emma Woodhouse traveling through time to indulge her matchmaking. In the tradition of the Bad Hemingway and Bad Faulkner contests comes a new collection of hilarious efforts to write the worst excerpt from the novel Jane Austen never wrote.”
