Hi, I'm Jay . I'm very glad to have found you all :o . I read (so far) mostly Georgette heyer, M M Kaye etc.

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.

Hi Jaynar! Good to have another perspective on M.M. Kaye's India novels. Just dig up the old threads, Shadow of the Moon is here. And there's an M.M. Kaye thread around too, try under country/continent/India.
