Two novels inspired by Dickens have been published in recent months. The Mould of Time by Robin Dermond Horspool "is based on the original ending of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations." But it also "centres on the early life of Miss Havisham," who, as we know, did not feature in the original ending. (Or in the revised ending, for that matter.) So how that works, I haven't yet figured out. Then there's The Cheshire Cheese Cat: A Dickens of a Tale by Carmen Agra Deedy and Randall Wright, a novel for preteens that's set in a pub Dickens used to visit (and which he used in A Tale of Two Cities).
