based on the excellent recommendations of annis, im taking a look at this author, nathan Gallazier, but i cant seem to find much info on him or his novels on line.

he really seems to fit my interests to a tee, but his books are a bit pricey on-line and id like to find out a little more before "taking the plunge"

any info on his style and the subjects of his books and your opinions of them would be greatly appreciated.

thnx in advance,
keny

good reading to you

Hi Keny- sorry, I've not been able to find any detail about this author, though I do know that he wrote his novels during the nineteenth century. I came across him in Jonathan Nield's book "Guide to the Best Historical Novels and Tales" written in the 1920s. As you say, Gallizieri covered some interesting early medieval periods in his writing. He also wrote at least one Byzantinian novel called "Lotus Woman", description here:

Several of his novels can be read online through the Internet Archive, and I'd suggest you try reading some of his work there first to see whether you like it before spending a lot on buying actual secondhand books at a high price. Here's a list of the ones available at the IA:

thanks Annis. i couldnt find any info on him either aside from the descriptions of his novels which seem to show he has a "continental" interest. i read the info from "guide" and his novels get a long description (a good sign).

Ill try the online achive, thanks. have you personally read any of his books?

Only the bits I've read from the Internet Archive. His style is very much of the nineteenth century, quite florid and purple prosy, but he writes quite a good tale if you can adapt to his way of writing. You might find it a bit overblown, which is why it might be a good idea to check it out before going ahead with buying books.
