Fitzwilliam Darcy – you can’t get enough of him

I never knew how many books are out there dealing with Fitzwilliam Darcy – either as a bachelor or as a married man. Darcy seems to be the epitome of man, people just can’t let him rest. And after seeing Colin Firth as Darcy in the gorgeous BBC series, I can’t say I’m surprised.

I was looking up a Stephanie Barron book on Shelfari just before (the Jane Austen mystery series) and loads of other books turned up, one of them by a Carrie Bebris. I looked it up on amazon and was stunned to see all those other Darcy books around. There is even a name for that sort of book- Darcyiana

So, for future reference I’m compiling a little list here. If anyone has something to contribute, let me know.
