Forthcoming Historical Novels
The Historical Novel Society has been tracking forthcoming historical novels for many years. These lists of historical fiction titles are based on publishers’ catalogs, publisher home pages, Publishers Weekly forecasts, Amazon, and information supplied by authors. Titles and dates are subject to change.
We list mainstream and small press titles set in the 1960s and earlier – the same books we solicit and hope to review in our print magazine. Details for the adult fiction lists are compiled by Sarah Johnson (US) and Sarah Cuthbertson (UK). The children’s/YA lists are compiled by Fiona Sheppard.
The current list for 2015 is a work in progress, and previous lists from 2014, from 2013 and from 2012 can also be found here and via the menu at right. See also our newest lists of forthcoming children’s and young adult titles for 2014 and for 2015.
