Salutations!

Post by Hunter » Mon November 3rd, 2008, 5:12 pm

Hello, everyone! Leyland told me about this forum this morning.

I'm fairly new to reading historical fiction. I run the web site for author Robert McCammon, who is currently writing a series of books set in Colonial America.

In addition to McCammon, I've really enjoyed C.J. Sansom's Matthew Shardlake novels. James McGee's Hawkwood novels have also been fun.

I look forward to discovering and reading more HF authors.

No, but being an HF forum, we do have an antique toasting fork.

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.

Welcome, Hunter. Not bad for a forum that has only existed (in this incarnation, at least) for two months!
