Hello all! I've been following this community for quite some time, and I just wanted to share with you a cake I made, inspired by JSMN. It's displayed on my literary blog as part of a feature called "Booklish" in which I make culinary creations inspired by literature =D

There's a recipe and decadence and a signed 1st edition and everything. Please let me know what you think. Enjoy! =D

Original Post



View Recipe

"At the top we have a savory English breakfast cake creation, infused with earl grey tea and spiced with black pepper and sage, inspired by the setting and gentlemanly characters of the novel. Digging deeper, we spill into layers of thick blackberry syrup, chocolate ice cream, and intensely dark chocolate cheesecake beneath. The flavors become stronger and thicker towards the bottom, much like how the magic epic unfolds before you as you make your way through the book. The dark, almost bitter chocolate ganache covering is representative of the encompassing flurry of dark magic, and an homage to the Raven King. Other inspirational images were dark forests, fairies, thick tomes of magic, and the backdrop of 19th-century England...."

As soon as I fall in love with a book or show I start unconsciously compiling a playlist for it.  I'm not sure why, but even after nearly six years with JS&MN this is still the hardest time I've ever had putting together an FST.  The process was probably made more difficult by my avoidance of period music; I assume most of us could find some nice Regency-style waltzes and party tunes, so I focused on hunting down tracks outside of that genre while still not being too 'out there.'  I'm not sure how successful it is, so let me know if ya'll have any suggestions or a personal mix!

So, I have a general idea:

Who would like to contribute music to come up with a fan soundtrack for the Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrel book?

To get the ball rolling, I have a song:

Lamento; just about 30 seconds sung by a choir

So, does anybody else have music that reminds them irresistibly of JS&MN?

I think James McAvoy would make a perfect Strange.

Since the news doesn't seem to have reached here yet, there is now a wiki for JS&MN . . . or rather, there is a new wiki that is actually getting developed, and the more people who come to add to it, the merrier! It can be found at:

http://hurtfew.wikispaces.com/

I am not, as it so happens, responsible for this site. I do, however, contribute to it when I am not bogged down under college papers. So please, come along yourselves and add an article or two when your lives allow for such aimless pursuits.

Hi everyone,

I am going to York on a day trip soon. It's been a while since I read JS&MN and I don't have a copy here with me, so I wanted to check if there were any book-related places or sights I should be sure to look for while I'm there. Obviously the Minster is a given, but should I pay attention to anything in particular in there? Anywhere else?

Sorry if this is a bit random, I just don't want to read the book in the future and have to smack myself for not going to see relevant places in York while I had the chance! I will post photographs after my visit if they are worth sharing.

Current Mood: excited excited

All very unofficial, I hasten to add. In my own obsession with the novel, I compiled a couple of documents pertaining to it. One is a list of all the characters, books of and about magic, and a good number of other things mentioned in the story. The second is a a time line of English Magic, which pulls information from Ladies of Grace Adieu as well as JS&MN. Anyway, these documents can be found at

Just read The Duke of Wellington Misplaces His Horse, and was wondering if anyone had any idea just how tied Clarke's mythic England is to Gaiman and Vess' Stardust universe.  With the inclusion of Wall, it's pretty obvious that she's looking for some connection, I'm just wondering how deep it's supposed to go. Is the Fairy of Stardust the same Fairy as JS&MN?  Thoughts, theories?
