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.

for such warm welcomes! Today was a whirlwind with my 5 year-old granddaughter and I'm now unwinding by meandering around HFO. I've read a dozen or so threads and hundreds of entries and want to respond to lots of things, but find myself rather overwhelmed. :o I also have much to learn about the nuts and bolts techniques of this particular format. :confused: Mostly I'm adding to an already fat folder of new authors and titles. It would seem that my tastes in HF are much narrower than I imagined and I look forward to the horizon-broadening potential offered here. :) (I've never been able to generate smilies before--what fun!!)

Yes, Moseyer and I are both Portlanders - she from Portland, Maine, and me from Portland, Oregon. I love that her profile picture is a Fielding! Annis and I were just sharing information about Henry and John, of Tom Jones and the Bow Street Runners fame, in connection with her Rapscallion review.

Welcome, Moyserer! I'd love to learn more about Henry Fielding's sister. Maybe sometime you could start a thread about her.

Enjoy your visits here.
