Attention Historical Fiction Fans

If you are a fan of historical fiction, check out this website.  It claims to list over 3,000 historical novels by time and place. 

I will be delving into some of the novels listed in the sections on Medieval Europe and The Renaissance.  Pillars of the Earth (Ken Follett) and The Other Boleyn Girl (Philippa Gregory) sparked my interest in these time periods.

Thanks for mentioning my website! It’s been growing steadily, and now includes listings for over 3,200 novels.

This an excellent web site, a great resource for finding any historical fiction novel. My interest lies in the medieval period, and I constantly use this site as a resource. As far as Pillars of the Earth, that is a must read. I own it, loved it, one of my favorites of all time. If you haven’t read any of Bernard Cornwell’s novels, I also recommended his Grail Quest Series (Archer’s Tale is book one), the Saxon Chronicles (The Last Kingdom, etc.), and his Arthurian Series.

I’m a huge historical fiction fan and I’ll have to check that site out. I try to read as much of it as I can, since I’m attempting to write a historical fiction novel. Thanks for mentioning the site!
