Rising from the Ashes so to speak

Post by Ash » Wed August 27th, 2008, 12:01 am

Hi, this is Ash. I found this site a few months back and became quickly addicted. I've been reading HF most of my life and its still my favorite genre. I do tend tho to stay away from the romantic type, but I enjoy ones that ask What If, as well as ones that bring a new perspective to an old story. My favorite authors are Sharon Kay Penman, Norah Lofts, and Bernard Cornwell. Hoping this place keeps going so I can find some more favorites!

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.

Hi ash, I've enjoyed your posts. I think I recently ran across a review by you on Amazon -- a novel called 'the Splendor' about 16th-century Prague. I agreed with your assessment heartily.
