I used to be a member of another historical fiction forum that must have been joined with this one? I recognize a number of the members, anyway :) Glad to find you all!

I read mostly English medieval history with some WWII thrown in for variety. I'm currently reading Fall of Giants by Ken Follett and Here Be Dragons by Sharon Kay Penman. Was very excited about Follett's new trilogy, but am finding it really slow going. :(

Hi lisajjb, was it the old board you are thinking of? It's been so long I can't even remember the name of it anymore. Glad you found us.

Welcome! I was wondering about Follett's new trilogy. Perhaps I'll borrow it instead of purchasing...

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.

Glad you found us, Lisa! Over there I had a different name, but you might remember the llady with the llama avatar. As you can see, I've switched to my daughter's horse. What was your old forum name?

So great you found us again. How long has it been since that happened? I'd almost forgotten we had a previous incarnation...
