Not to hijack a perfectly good book review and meditation, but I'm struck by the parallels between the Victorian novels you describe -- long, serialized, spinoffs, genre-bending -- and the recently completed Harry Potter series. I attempted a discussion of serialization and form, but you know the field much better. Kakutani's review (and a few others, I think) refered to Rowling's work as "Dickensian"....

The final Harry Potter volume also includes an instance of a typeface used to represent handwriting.
