I thought heaps of her books had been reissued. Saw heaps of them over in the UK and also on Amazon.co.uk

Oh, lucky you then. :p I'm on the other side of the Atlantic. Only a few of her books have been reissued in the US. And I have them all. Except for the one which comes out in December.

Might be worth the while for you to look at Amazon.co.uk or Ebay. :) I hate to wait for books knowing they are available in order countries. :D

Shall have to try that. Did find a nice European site that had historical fiction. But I didn't see any of hers. Maybe I should do some more looking. And I'd probably only find used older copies in the US.

Nefret, have you tried Book Depository? I would think the Plaidy UK reissues would be readily available on there.

I've found most of the older Plaidy books pretty easily used, though. They crop up a lot on eBay, and though I had to wait a few months, several ones that I had been looking for showed up on PaperbackSwap.

I've come across several wonderful finds at PBS, some Dorothy Dunnett and Plaidy too.

I have the Kings Pleasure and The Concubine but have yet to read them, every time I think I might I'm burned out on the Tudors.

Oh, thanks for the suggestion. They even have a US based site. Think that I shall have some fun here.

nona- I had to go visit the Plantagenets for a while. Then I went back to Tudors for a bit.

One of my website visitors alerted me to a missing Norah Lofts novel, and when I went to make sure all of her historical novels were listed, I was astonished to see how many there were! She used settings in medieval and 18th-19th century England repeatedly, but she also wrote novels set in the ancient Biblical world, in the Caribbean, and the Dutch East Indies. I've just put up a blog post about the novels I added to the site. She wrote a few contemporary novels, as well, though of course I haven't added them at HistoricalNovels.info.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info
