Pamela (atomicempress) | 58 comments I noticed on the Jane Austen Centre that they have the magazine Jane Austen's Regency World Magazine available to both UK and other countries. Does anyone get the magazine? I was just wondering what it was all about and what all was featured in a typical issue. Thanks. I hope this is okay to post about.

Megan I do. It is wonderful. It has articles on various Jane related topics - the books and characters, locations where Jane lived and people she knew or read, history of the time, social customs of the times, book reviews of everything from scholarly works to popular novels. I love the ads - wonderful stuff. It has a very high production level - glossy and beautiful photos. I'm a big fan.

Pamela (atomicempress) | 58 comments a UK one year subscription is £33.00 or $52.47 and a outside the UK subscription is $61.53 or £38.70. They also sell the individual issues on the website for £3.50 or $5.57 if you just want to check it out first.
P.S. that is all according to the JA Centre website.

G Hodges (glh1) | 8 comments I have a subscription and I really like the articles. Some have excellent discussion points. For those who subscribe (it takes a while longer to get to me in the US) could we start a discussion thread on the articles?

This is the link to the magazine home page. Not much there unless you are a subscriber. One of the articles for this issue is on Olympic sports during the Regency era. Do you think Jane would have been as engrossed with the Olympics as we are today? Did you know women played cricket in Regency era England?
