    HF is my favorite genre. As most of you already know of my obsession with the romantics, and days of the past. In lieu the only Historical Fiction forum I have been able to find now being non-existent, I have started this group for the discussion of all things related to Historical Fiction of any period of time.

    Well I love the work of Morgan Llywellyn. She deals primairly with Celtic myth and lore, and I think her works are wonderful. Druids was fantastic, as was The Lion of Ireland. And though perhaps this is more Historical Fantasy, I loved Lady of the Forest by Jennifer Roberson was marvelous. It was a story of Robin Hood. And I loved Marty Stewarts King Aurthur books.

    I am currently reading the First North American series by Kathleen O'Neal Gear and Michael Gear. So far I find the books to be interesting, perhaps they are not the most fantastic, and wowing things I have ever read, but I enjoy the story, and each book brings something unique. I am currently on book 3 People of the Earth, and I have to say so far I think this is the best of them.

    The other thing that is interesting about these books, is that they can be read stand alone, individually or out of order, without a person being completely lost. Each book is its own story, a story of a new people, yet there are elements of the prior books that weave into the story.

    I think for historical fiction one of the first names requiring mention is Sir Walter Scott

    What no Ivanhoe? or Rob Roy? I lived for those stories as a child and they are the main reason for my interest in reading as an adult
