Historical Fiction

About this genre

Historical fiction is booming from James MacDonald Fraser’s Flashman novels, to Patrick O’Brian’s naval series, or the Brother Caedfel mysteries set in the Middle Ages.

Historical novels add to the pleasure of reading a good story, the additional pleasures of getting to know a period from history with all its local colour and smells and food and clothes.

Lovewriting lets you discover new authors of historical fiction, and allows you to download free opening extracts from their books to sample.
