The Brontë family moved to Haworth in 1820 and it was in this solid, 1770s-built parsonage on the edge of open moorland, that Patrick Brontë died in 1861 having outlived his wife and children. One of the most evocative rooms is the simply-furnished parlour where Charlotte, Emily and Anne did most of their writing. A five-year programme of events, Brontë200, celebrates the bicentenaries of the novelists’ births, which will culminate with Anne’s in 2020.

SyFy Wire reviews the comic Adler #1.
Penned by World Fantasy Award-winning author Lavie Tidhar, with stimulating artwork by Paul McCaffrey (TMNT, DC's Men of War), Adler #1 finds the titular heroine hunting down and clashing with the most brilliant villain of all time, the genius called the Napoleon of Crime named Professor James Moriarty.
Her perilous journey brings together an impressive roster of famous Victorian heroines from world literature, science, and history, with classic figures such as Jane Eyre, Lady Havisham, Marie Curie, Carmilla, and Ayesha joining the adventurous outing. (Jeff Spry)
