With the invention of the AfterNet, death isn’t quite the end to a
literary career it once was, and Jane Austen, the grande dame of English
literature, is poised for a comeback with the publication of Sanditon,
the book she was writing upon her death in 1817. But how does a
disembodied author sign autographs and appear on talk shows? With the
aid of Mary Crawford, a struggling acting student who plays the role of
the Regency author who wrote Pride and Prejudice and Emma and Sense and
Sensibility. But Austen discovers her second chance at a literary career
also gives her a second chance at happiness and possibly even … love.

Alex Munroe hated being dead, but he hated not being a cop even more.
Luckily the discovery of the afterlife means death isn't quite the
disability it once was and new technology has allowed him to partner
with rookie cop Linda Yamaguchi. Of course technology still can't give
him a physical body or the ability to interact with the billions of
other dead people, except through the Internet. But technology has
allowed Alex to expand his mind and access the world of information in
ways he would have never thought possible when alive, which is a useful
skill when the dead start to go missing, and it's up to Alex and Linda
to solve the mystery of their disappearance.
Miss Charlotte House will not admit impediments to marriage, not even
when those impediments include scandal, blackmail and even a duel to the
death. With the help of her particular friend Miss Jane Woodsen, she
deduces all that happens in Bath—both good and ill—and together they
ensure that true love’s course runs smooth, even though both friends
have suffered tragedies that prevent their own happiness. These six
affairs, set in Bath, England, during the Napoleonic War, are inspired
by the creations of both Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Jane Austen.
