Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Fascinating. Thanks for posting!
Somebody famous (can't remember who) once quipped, "The Balkans have always produced more history than could be consumed locally."
