Another Matt Shaw link, this time to Judith Flanders’s blog. (Judith Flanders blogs! Squee worthy geek out moment on par with discovering that Kate Flint has a photo blog.) Through the British Library, Flanders spent a Saturday editing Wikipedia entries using the BL’s collections and resources. I love the bizarre confluence of writers, the BL, Judith Flanders, the Victorians, the Wikipedia, and bawdy songs about the burning of Parliament in 1830s. I also discovered that Flanders has a new book out called The Invention of Murder. I’m reading it as soon as I can lay hands on a copy. Her Inside the Victorian Home has the most flags in it of any book I used in my dissertation. And as my family and students know, give me a pack of Post-It Note flags, and I’m one happy person. If the new book is anywhere near as fantastic as Inside the Victorian Home, I’m so using it the next time I teach the Victorian Lit. class on crime and sensation fiction.
