[bookshare-discuss] Re: Pride and Prejudice

Oh, no, Kim!!  You were not rude at all, and I am in agreement with you on 
this.  I am sorry my message sounded like I found your input rude.  I was 
just curious about Verizon.net, since I can no longer use it.  I guess they 
just sold some areas to Frontier--that must be it.

So please be assured that I did not find your message a bit rude.  I had 
intended to open a discussion on this topic if anyone wanted to participate, 
so you were not "horning in".  (smile)

Hi, Sue, please forgive me horning in. I was interested in the many
books taking off of Jane Austen's work. I hate being rude
so forgive any faux pas I made. Regards, Kim.

Hi Kim,

I should have sent this privately.  I see your server is verizon.net.  I
had
that provider, but had to change to frontier.com because they bought out

verizon in my area at least.

There do seem to be a superfluity of books concerned with the doings of
Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. I don't know if Jane Austen would
approve, but in any case, her work is in the public domain, thus leaving
other intrepid souls the freedom to mess with the characters. I don't
know what to think of this state of affairs. On the one hand, I like
creativity in principle, yet I didn't at all care for the idea of Sense
And Sensibility and Sea Monsters.  I wonder why the author just didn't
make up his own characters without writing a book using ones that have
been made up by the original author. It's one thing to play in an
author's universe (usually it is made clear that other authors are
welcome to contribute stories and suchlike) and quite another thing to
grab the author's characters and mess about with them. Am I wrong that
this is a new thing or has it been going on before Mr. Grahame-Smith did
this? Regards, Kim. P.S.: Can someone message me back if you get this?
My email server wasn't sending messages to me and nothing was going out.

Hi Sue,

I was thinking just that when I looked at the books recently added to
the collection list! smile.
