The venerable Times of London bowed to the demands of a vulgar modern age on Tuesday, revising its Victorian-era style guide to include such brash and contemporary language as the title "Ms." The 205-year-old newspaper--whose readers tend to regard its eccentricities as a national treasure on the order of Big Ben--introduced the usage changes in Tuesday's editions. The guide, last revamped in the mid-1960s, was replete with arcane treasures such as singular spelling of Mikhail S. "Gorbachov."

Beatles material reportedly bought for $35 last month by a British tourist at an Australian flea market is not rare memorabilia, a Beatles expert said. London's Times newspaper had reported that a suitcase bought by Fraser Claughton, 41, was packed with Beatles photos, concert programs and unreleased recordings. But Pete Nash, a memorabilia expert who examined the contents, said he saw photocopied ticket stubs, laser-scanned pictures from the 1990s -- and no rare recordings.

Charlotte Bronte, author of 19th century romance "Jane Eyre," has just published a new book. "Stancliffe's Hotel," a 34-page novella written by Bronte in 1838 and until now read only by a handful of scholars, was printed in full in the London Times newspaper Friday. " 'Stancliffe's Hotel' is very sardonic, very racy, very witty, not at all like 'Jane Eyre' -- it's not a passionate story about lovelorn heroines," Heather Glen, editor of the new edition of the novella, told BBC radio.

During my recent interview with author Mark Lewisohn about his monumental new biography of the Beatles, “Tune In: The Beatles: All These Years,” he very briefly let slip a comment that might qualify as favoritism, something that doesn't figure into the book itself, an even-handed, deeply researched account not only of the group itself but also of the world they entered and eventually changed with their music. At 944 pages, it's an imposing book, all the more so when you realize it's the first of three volumes, the other two expected to land successively six or seven years down the line from the first installment.
