Cool new blog for writers of historical fiction

I've just discovered a blog by Linda Proud, who taught a summer course at Oxford in writing historical fiction a few years ago. One of the cool things she's done is to suggest writing exercises geared specifically for historical fiction, which people can play with in the comments section. Looks like lots of fun!
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
