(I go to England; I read Victorian anti-Catholic sermons. I come home; I find Victorian anti-Catholic sermons in my mailbox.)
- G. P. R. James, Darnley; Or the Field of the Cloth of Gold (Richard Bentley, 1836). "Bentley's Standard Novels" reprint of James' historical novel about Henry VIII and company, set at (obviously) the famous meeting between Henry and Francis I. The Victorian Web has S. C. Hall's account of James, who, along with W. H. Ainsworth, was one of Scott's most popular literary descendants.
- Catherine Gore, Sketches of English Character, 2 vols. (Nonsuch, 2005). Reprint of Gore's satirical short stories. There is a biographical sketch of Gore, a popular silver-fork novelist, at Project Corvey; see also the brief essay on Gore's plays at British Women Playwrights around 1800.
- Jose Saramago, Seeing (Harcourt, 2006). Sequel to Blindness.
- Katharine Weber, Triangle (FSG, 2006). Takes the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory tragedy as its jumping-off point.
- Glen David Gold, Carter Beats the Devil (Sceptre, 2002). Did the great magician kill Warren G. Harding? The title character is very loosely based on a real magician, Charles J. Carter.
- Elizabeth Arthur, Antarctic Navigation (Bloomsbury, 2004). A young woman tries to recreate Robert Falcon Scott's expedition to the South Pole.
- John Wing et al., "The Candle Not Put Out:" Or an Account of the Tercentenary Commemoration of the Martyrdom of Latimer and Ridley, Holden at Thurcaston, in the County of Leicester (Where Latimer Was Born); With a Sermon Preached in the Parish Church, and Speetches Delivered on the Lawn of the Rectory, on the 16th Day of October, 1855 (Hamilton, Adams, and Co., 1856). Sermons, celebratory speeches, etc.
- George Fyler Townsend, The Church's Appeal to the People of England; Or, a Reply to Mr. O'Connell: A Letter, &c. (Rivington, 1839). An anti-Catholic attack on Daniel O'Connell. Townsend is better (only?) known for his translation of Aesop's Fables.
- Richard Parkinson, The Moderation of the Church of England, Preached in the Collegiate Church of Christ, in Manchester, on SUNDAY the 27th of APRIL, 1834 (Rivington, 1834). Sermon on the Thirty-Nine Articles.
