I apologize if I'm breaking any rules by posting this, but I've started a new blog that some of you might be interested in adding. It's about the absurdities (and occasional mysteries!) that I come across in my research as a Victorian literature grad student. There are plenty of stories about the eccentric aristocracy, and plenty of recaps of strange Victorian plots. Occasionally I'll go slightly off topic and recount things from other points in history, but I'm trying to keep it as focused on the 19th century as possible.
