Please note: PRIDE & PREJUDICE: BEHIND THE SCENES is a substantially revised version of the out-of-print Pride & Prejudice: The Scenes Jane Austen Never Wrote. Half of the scenes are new, never before published material. What did Mr. Darcy think when he first saw Elizabeth Bennet? How did Miss Bingley talk her brother out of proposing to Jane Bennet? And how did Lady Catherine de Bourgh find out Mr. Darcy was on the verge of proposing to Elizabeth? 15 authors of Austen-inspired fiction decided to answer these questions and more. Here are the scenes Jane Austen never wrote: ones that happened off stage, such as Mr. Collins proposing to Charlotte Lucas, and actual Pride and Prejudice scenes from the point of view of different characters. PRIDE & PREJUDICE: BEHIND THE SCENES is not a complete novel in and of itself. It is a collection of scenes written independently and designed to complement the original. The reader can start at the beginning or dip into any scene they choose. Contributing authors include Abigail Reynolds, Mary Simonsen, Susan Mason-Milks, Maria Grace, Jack Caldwell, C. Allyn Pierson, Shannon Winslow, Colette Saucier, Jane Odiwe, Monica Fairview, Diana Birchall, Marilyn Brant, Kara Louise, Cassandra Grafton and L.L. Diamond.
