(Pride and Prejudice-inspired Science Fiction)
by Enid Wilson
Release date: September 2011
In an alternate universe, fans of famous works take full control and, unrestrained by the superego of canon, run riot. It annihilates the conventional set of literary genres and organically makes up new ones, which form a kind of map of human fictional compulsions. – Adapted from Time Magazine, 2011
In the futuristic society on Planet Earth, Elizabeth Bennet is accused of luring Fitzwilliam Darcy to an illegal establishment, which leads to their exile deep in the center of a rebel planet. The subsequent galactic war exposes dark secrets regarding the autocratic Queen Immortal. Will Elizabeth and Darcy discover their love for one another and find their way back to Earth?
