I will be honest with you. I have a kind of review logjam. It is a nightmare to stare at white sheet of paper for hours. Maybe I have read too many good reviews in the past days which blocks me. I don't know the reason yet.
I want to be fair and honest to the authors of the books I review and of course I want to be honest and fair with you. And when I obviously can't deliver quality content I abandon to write just something. I hope you understand.
Instead I deliver a post especially for all of you who like to read historical fantasy.
In Edi's Weekend Wave #37 I informed you about an interesting post - Historical Fantasy: A History, Part one: The Past - over at Adventures in SciFi Publishing. The three-part series about historical fiction written by author M. K. Hobson.
Now the second part - Historical Fantasy: A History, Part Two: The Present - is available. Don't let you be mislead by the term historical fantasy. Part two contains a lot of information about all the different "-punk" categories. To be honest I never read before about "Timepunk". A highlight of the post is definitely all the book links. To my surprise I read 11 of the 60 mentioned books and another seven are on my list. That means I like historical fiction.
M. K. Hobson refers to an excellent post by author J.E. Remy. As there is no direct link in her post. I thought it would be good to post it: All Sorts of Punk
Finally I like to share one more link with you. Let me first quote what the author wrote about his site:
"This site provides a highly selective list of online resources and novel recommendations for the genres of historical fiction, fantasy, and historical fantasy. Its purpose is to introduce historical fiction fans to the world of fantasy literature, to introduce fantasy fans to the world of historical novels and short fiction, and to offer readers of both genres information on the overlapping genre of historical fantasy."In case this text aroused your interest then go and visit:
