The first one's called "Something From the Nightside". They're really quite cool: scary, funny and very strange! (more) and earned+3

Although I have only dim memories of it now, I'm pretty sure I found it an interesting day out. I went with my Grandma, and we drove along some of the moorland roads - breathtaking scenery. Had expected the Brontes' house to be out in the wilds somewhere, but it's not as isolated as all that. Definitely worth a visit when you're back in the UK. Will look forward to a Bronte novel after Lights Out :) Apparently, Charlotte was captivated by London (or at least the idea of London - I don't know whether her thoughts changed after she'd visited the city), so a Bronte novel would follow on from Sinclair nicely!

As for the Brontes, we can tackle them whenever (starting with whichever first) - have you been to their home? Despite having friends who lived near it in previous years, I never made it there, which is a bit of a shame - guess that'll be something to see when I move back to England, lol...

To return to the subject of London writing, I wondered if you'd heard of Robert Finn's _Underlife_? I spotted the Rapid Review of the novel earlier and have added the book to my 'to read' list.

Charlotte, in particular, is a writer I've returned to at various points in my life and always found something fresh in her work. To the best of my knowledge, Anne wrote only two novels before her premature death. It's tragic how short the lives of she and her siblings were. I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that some critics believe that, had she lived longer, Anne may have produced novels of a similar calibre to Austen. Perhaps they had a similar outlook on the world, in some respects. I'd certainly recommend _Agnes Grey_ as a starting point for Anne. It's fairly short - it could probably be read in a day or two. Anne stuck it out as a governess, then drew on her experiences in this work. Having said that, it would be doing the novel a disservice to treat it simply as a loosely veiled description of her working life. It's some time now since I read it, but I can remember finding it fascinating. (more) and gained+3
