Dr Edward Neill 1941-2009

It is with great sadness that I must announce that JAYQA is no longer active,
due to the death of Dr Edward Neill, my father, in April this year from cancer.

I've decided to leave the website largely unchanged beyond this notice.
If you're looking for info relating to Austen, please note that with 141 questions answered,
it's quite likely something relating to your question is here so check the Answer Pages.

The site was set up in 2002 by myself so that the answers and reviews could be supplied by my father,
in order to open up the world of Jane Austen to more people, and generate a modest amount of money
in the process from ads and commisions on book sales. This appears to have been successful,
and I'd like to think the degree of satisfaction of those who read the answers
was second only to the modesty of the money generated.

My father was a well-known critic and author. There were obituaries published in The Guardian and The Independent,
the former more personal and the latter concentrating on his work:

I'd be grateful if you could use the Goooogle links whenever you visit. (Be one of the tiny proportion of visitors who actually do this!) Or even better donate to us through 'Pay Pal' Donation button (below). This helps us keep the main part of the site free.

It would also help enormously if when you need to buy a book you go through one of the (UK) Amazon links on this site and buy it from them. I've tried them -they have a splendid range of fairly priced books.

We welcome any serious offers to advertise appropriate sites or commodities on our pages.

The Author Adds...
There is also a Book Review section (not written by Jane) which will give you some idea of whether a book is interesting and on which aspects of Jane's life and work. There are also comments on some academic articles.
