Interest in HF: I’ve always loved fiction and history, so historical fiction is my happy reading zone. I think the books that cemented hist fic as my favourite were Random Passage and Waiting for Time by Bernice Morgan. I have a special interest in: WWII, Ireland, England, Italy, Canada (especially Newfoundland and Labrador), women’s history/herstory and folklore.
Favourite HF book: Can’t pick one. Recently enjoyed The Good People by Hannah Kent.
Preferred HF: I have a special interest in WWII period, especially relating to women’s history, codebreaking work, Bletchley Park. I tend to most enjoy literary fiction rather than comercial or popular fiction, but read a range.

I’ve just started it get into audiobooks during 2017 and also into short story collections, which I find are great in audio format. Does anyone have any suggestions for historical fiction short collections?

that's actually a really good question, I don't think I've ever come across any HF short collections; they're mostly crime or ghost stories. I'd be interested to hear if there are any available!
