|We've stepped down into true-life fairy tale scenes.|
It has been a second very interesting year. We've had some excellent new authors join us, and we've really enjoyed their posts. We've read about the poetry of Mary, Queen of Scots, met Mendoza the Jew, an English Heavyweight Champion, and sought after the body parts of saints from all over the world.
Our most popular posts from this year (Sept. 23, 2012 - Sept. 22, 2013) based on the number of hits have been 1) The Real Identities Behind the Books we Love, by Karen V. Wasylowski, 2) Samuel Leech's Account of War at Sea, by Wanda Luce, 3) Seven Surprising Facts About Anne of Cleves, by Nancy Bilyeau, and 4) 'Let the Cat Out of the Bag...' by Jonathan Hopkins.

Reviewers have said, "It's an amusing trot through British history and excellent bedtime reading." "I opened the book expecting to find something akin to a conference proceedings without 'trained' experts. Instead I found a new appreciation for the meticulous research and knowledge of the genre's authors." And "Fans of historical fiction and England will find the book rich in supplemental information to complement their reading with an introduction to authors of works they might enjoy."
