Women in H. Rider Haggard.

In the latest issue of Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies, University of Georgia's Elizabeth Lee Steere discusses the portrayal of women in African-set works of H. Rider Haggard, including King Solomon's Mines (1885), Allan Quatermain (1887), and Allan's Wife (1889).

Also of interest: Cheryl Blake Price's review of Elizabeth Carolyn Miller's Framed: The New Woman Criminal in British Culture at the Fin de Siècle, which mentions mystery author L. T. Meade (1844–1914).
