We roundup some new additions, and some well-loved newsletters, each bringing back to life timeless tales from hundreds of years ago
It’s fascinating that the Substack Community and platform seems to be such a good fit for epistolary novels: with that in mind it would be amazing to see Dangerous Liasons on here as well......
If anyone ever did a "Dracula Daily" style newsletter version of "The Brothers Karamazov", that would be quite an experience. The first nine parts of that book (up to Dmitri's interrogation) take place over the space of only eight days.
omg lol thank you for featuring Moby Dick Summerl! love y'all —Kristen
There's a Beyond the Wizard read along happening in 2023 taking a deep dive into the 14 novels written by L. Frank Baum. https://beyondthewizard.substack.com
I am going to start serializing some old Myths and Tales starting with Irish Fairy Tales by James Stephens
Another great one coming soon! Wizard of Oz...https://storycauldron.substack.com/p/were-off-to-see-the-wizard
Oooooh, what an awesome list! Subscribed to all of them, I guess. 😍
This is just too cool. Books bit by bit delivered to your email.
I am planning to serialize the 1926 novel "Dry Martini" by John Thomas this fall on at bootleggers.substack.com
I’m excited for Watson and the Penny Dreadfuls. I’m a big fan of Holmes. I will read the stories and watch the hell out of any film or television adaptations.
While I haven’t read classic penny dreadfuls, there was an interesting show that premiered for a few seasons starring Eva Green, Rory Kinnear, Timothy Dalton, Josh Harnett and the irreplaceable Helen McCrory.
I'm so glad to see Werther Rewritten featured on here! Also thank you for making us more aware of the other publications so we can network and lift each other up :)
I like your use of divider to break up the content.
Totally inspired by this!
I have put a project in the pipeline to serialize Milton's Paradise Lost: https://paradiselostpoem.substack.com/
Watch this space ✨
A delightful thing about some of the "coming soon" newsletters is that it'll be a surprise and a treat for your inbox!
I will be serializing Fyodor Dostoevsky's novels, starting with The Brothers Karamazov in January 2023.
I'm starting a newsletter for C. S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters in April next year! https://screwtapeletters.substack.com/
