Hello from Nottingham!

Post by IzzyB » Fri August 13th, 2010, 1:05 pm

Heya everyone! I'm Izzy from Nottingham.

I was told about this forum by Elizabeth Chadwick, and after searching around and reading it for the past week or so I've decided to join. Seems really interesting, and I can't wait to read around a little more and get more recs for books I've yet to read.

:)

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.

Anything Tudor, pretty much.

I also like historical fantasy (especially anything by Sara Douglass).
