About our Guides

One of our projects is to create guides to specific periods and settings in historical fiction. Each guide will have a brief introduction to the way that the subject is treated in historical fiction, written by our staff to begin with, but easily changed if you write in with improvements.

The key to this section is interactivity. If you want a guide and don’t see one here, suggest it. If you have stuff to add to one of our guides, write in. We will also run reading clubs and film clubs here, so if you want to read books and exchange views with other enthusiasts, sign up and join in!

For those who want a ready-made guide to the genre, you cannot do better than Sarah Johnson’s Historical Fiction II – A Guide to the Genre.
