A major publishing house boardroom, thirty years ago.

“Jane Austen. A novelist barely alive.

“Gentlemen, we can rebrand her. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s first bionic author.

“Jane Austen will be that author. Better than she was before. More insightful… more empathetic… more quietly critical of her paternalistic Georgian society.

“The book clubs are gonna eat this shit up, not to mention Hollywood!”

“Think of the residuals, and no royalties!”

“One word: sequels.”

“Brilliant!”
