I just voted for Darcy's Story. It wasnt on there, but it should be now. I highly enjoyed that one. But might have to look into some of these as well... :)

Yes. People add to the list without reading it all the way through.

message 7: by Marlene (new)

Marlene I am at a loss to recall a sequel to Pride and Predjudice. I don't remember the author or the title but the heroine is left penniless and refuses marriage to the local butcher if I'm not mistaken. She sets off on her own and is kidnapped by a dwarf and his gang of also kidnapped children who mine in a remote mountainous area. In the end she is rescued and goes to live in a old mansion and opens a school for chidren. Does anyone remember a book like that.I think it is a Jane Austen sequel .


message 8: by Gergana (last edited Jun 30, 2013 10:39AM) (new)

Gergana Why is "Emma" here? I thought this list was for books based on Jane Austen`s novels.
And OMG Twilight saga and Fifty shades of grey! How is this connected to Austen at all? And the Bronte sisters?


message 9: by Amber (new)

Amber Thomas *Supposedly* Twilight was like, "OMG, Edward hated Bella at first-- then they fell in love! It's just like P&P!" I disagree full-heartedly to them being on the list, but that's my guess as to why.


message 10: by Bree (new)

Bree Prom and Prejudice is another modern "retelling" of P&P


message 11: by C. (new)

C. on pg-3-#237- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien sure doesn't belong here!


Love the list! :]

message 13: by Bree (last edited Apr 29, 2014 05:30PM) (new)

Bree Kathrina wrote: "Why is twilight in this list?"

because stephenie Meyer took some aspects of P&P and placed them in the saga

Not my opinion, but one held by Stephenie herself

and Sylvia Day has stated that the Fifty Shades Series started out as a Twilight fan fic

I have heard about the 50 Shades but I think that this with Twilight is taking it too far... So if a character dies in some book will we call it "ispired by a mastepiece" ? No. Thanks for the information though!


message 15: by Suzan (new)

Suzan Lauder The Hobbit and Watership Down should be removed.


ᏒIᎪlᎥstᎥc WHY IS EMMA ON HERE?


message 17: by Sarah (last edited Aug 05, 2015 08:50PM) (new)

Sarah  M Just read an awesome Jane Austen book. It read like an autobiography but so much better because it was about Jane's love life. It gave you an idea where Jane got her inspiration for Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. It was witty and well written. It was called Jane by the Sea by Carolyn V Murray.


message 18: by Suzan (new)

Suzan Lauder From Facebook:
"There has been a horrible rash of thefts of work of other novelists lately. The original copyright holders did not give permission. Here are the originals and copyright holders, then the published copycat and thief's author name.
"A Chance Meeting" by Lis Batten was stolen and published illegally as "Pride and Tribulation: A Jane Austen Fan Fiction" by thief Emma Lee,
"Speak not Againist the Sun." by 4giveMeJane was stolen and published illegally as "Enchanted Hearts" by thief Claire Butler,
"One False Step" by PemberleyFan was stolen and published illegally as "False Pride" by thief Emma Lee,
"A Woman Scorned" by JustMJ was stolen and posted as "Mistress of Pemberley" by thief BronzeWing31340,
"Fair Stands the Wind" and "A New Beginning" by MaxineB were published under their original names and by a thief using the real author's AHA pen name (Maxine B).

Amazon has taken down these stolen books. Please do not buy anything from these authors. If you have an opportunity to publicly shame them, do so. Maxine B was considering publishing, and if she does, we'll hear about it through the JAFF grapevine in anticipation, long before it's out. We hope this incident didn't make her decide not to publish.

Authors, keep a record of the first time you wrote your work. You can see it in "Properties" in MS Word. If you update, keep the first copy. If you don't have it now, and your work is not on a JAFF site but was in the past, contact the JAFF sites to see if anyone downloaded a copy for their own personal use--they may have a date for you."

These are all unpublished novels by the copyright holding author, and someone else decided to publish them as their own. Shame on them.

Michele from Meryton Press suggests registering your copyright. If your work is unpublished, she suggests mailing a copy of your work to yourself.

I completely agree. It is not fan fiction if it is by the author! Emma by ALexander McCall Smith would be though


message 20: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady Emma has been removed, because as everyone remarked, it is not fan fiction.


message 21: by Booklovinglady (last edited Sep 20, 2015 03:11AM) (new)

Booklovinglady Amazing to see hardly any of Georgette Heyer's historical romances on this list. Many Georgette Heyer fans are also great fans of Jane Austen, and vice versa, as the last only wrote a handful of novels, unfortunately. But it all depends upon how you define 'Jane Austen fan fiction', of course...

JAFF is a little different than you are thinking. It is more directly linked. JAFF consists of sequels, variations, retellings, adaptations, closely "inspired by", etc. of Jane Austen's books. Most are specifically Pride and Prejudice related (I have read over 180 P&P JAFF). Georgette Heyer would not be considered JAFF.

Ah, I see... It's all in the word 'fan', I guess :-0
I assumed it was fiction for Jane Austen fans, instead of fiction based on Jane Austen's work. But Bridget Jones's Diary is a bit ambiguous too then, isn't it? I've read the book, ages ago, but never linked it to Jane Austen's work until I noticed it on this list.


message 24: by Nicole Marie (last edited Mar 02, 2016 06:22PM) (new)

Nicole Marie Bridget Jones's Diary is probably the most well known modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice! LOOSELY adapted, but true :)

message 26: by Lindsey (last edited Mar 11, 2016 11:41AM) (new)

Lindsey Arruda HELP! I have been searching everywhere for a P&P variation where Caroline Bingley kidnaps Elizabeth, but ends up getting caught and put into an asylum where she has to look at the coach she used to kidnap Elizabeth. Lousia was involved also by using Wickham to lure Elizabeth. Wickham loves Lydia in this version, and the only reason he helps is because Lydia has been kidnapped, but instead of harming Elizabeth he goes straight to Darcy to help save both sisters. Please! If anyone has read this and knows what it is called please reply. I have read so many variations that I am afraid that I might be describing two different books! I am going on my third week of searching all sites I can. I read it on Amazon originally and now it is no where to be found! Thank you to anyone who knows what I am looking for!

Had to ask around JAFF community - Is it Disguise of Any Form by Denise Adams? or Miss Bingley's Revenge by Wendy Solomon?

message 30: by Tandie (new)

Tandie Thanks for this list, I was able to find a JAFF that I couldn't remember the title of. Comments are funny, we Austenites expect accuracy! I saw a P&P at Hastings a few years ago that supposedly retold the tale with dirty scenes. I put it on my Snape-disapproves shelf, lol. I'll pop back here & leave the title.


message 31: by Tandie (new)

Tandie Okay, it's Pride & Prejudice: The Wild & Wanton Edition by Michelle M Pillow. Nice pen name. I don't think it's here, not sure. I collect copies of P&P and almost purchased it by accident!

I have P&P the complete annotated edition, which wouldn't belong here, but surely anything 'wild & wanton' must be FF.


message 32: by Tandie (new)

Tandie Oops, lost my last comment. Just wanted to thank you for the list. Helped me find a JAFF that I'd forgotten the title of. Lol at the funny comments, us Austenites expect accuracy! Anyway, I remembered a JAFF I'd put on my Snape-disapproves shelf & looked it up.

Nicole Marie Auto found and removed 15 duplicates.
Manually removed 3 for not being JAFF.

Sherren Hewitt #2: What is the title of the book where Elizabeth Bennet is taken from the Matlock estate (Snowlock) and is found by Thomas Bennet in Oxford and raises her. Many years later she is at a soiree with her aunt and uncle Gardiner and Fitzwilliam Darcy sees a resemblance to his aunt, Lady Matlock, and is reunited with them?

I've seen recently Mary's Song on Amazon. It's ver short and part of KU.
I'll check my Kindle Austenland folder & Amazon watch lists and see if I have something with Mary there.
