Thank you for that lovely welcome. A special hullo to Divia. Does it mean that there aren't many of us "Victorians" They don't know what they are missing!

I enjoy the Victorian authors, especially Dickens and Gaskell, but not so much HF set in the Victorian period (though there have been books here and there that I've enjoyed). Maybe because the real thing is so good, modern HF has a hard time competing?

Annie, we are a rare breed! :) I think I am the only hardcore Victorian gal on the MB. All of the HF stories I have ever written have been set in the Victorian Era. Victorian Era authors are decent enough, but sometimes they are too long winded for my taste. ;)

Welcome Annie, I see you've delurked! :D
There are alll sorts of discussions going on and sometimes the Victorian etc era comes up, and there are boards on the forum for that period too!
It's a busy, fun forum and there's nearly always an interesting discussion going on somewhere, whatever the subject! :D

Hi Annie and welcome. I quite like the Victorians, also Mediaeval and Tudors.
