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.

If nothing else, it's a good place to re-direct threads that get seriously off-topic! :D

There are plenty of places on the web to debate (or scream, as is what usually happens). I wouldn't miss it if the thread didn't come back; tho I agree about off topic threads; maybe a thread called meanderings?

MLE makes a good point about the debate forum being a good place to relocate posts that go off topic. I know I went off topic a few times, and it never bothered me to have my posts moved. This really helps keep the threads on topic, which I think is fairly important.
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
