About this book

This is the first scholarly study to explore the ever-expanding world of online Austen fandom and fan fiction writing. Using case studies from the Internet writing community and publisher, Wattpad, as well as dedicated fan websites, it illuminates the literary processes and products that have given Austen multiple afterlives in the digital arena.

Reviews

"This is an exciting project, which makes an important and significant contribution to the fields of fan studies and readership studies. Kylie Mirmohamadi's work provides a new perspective on Austen's reception, highlighting in particular the intertextual (in the broadest sense of the word) nature of how Austen is now received and perceived in today's world." - Katie Halsey, University of Stirling, UK
