Historical Fiction

Vintage e-books

At times it seems there is a fine line between adventure stories and historical fiction.   The difference is that in today’s post I have attempted to include a wider variety of authors and to limit myself to those authors who were likely to convey an accurate sense of the time period about which they wrote. Of course no discussion of historical fiction would be complete without including some works by Sir Walter Scott, the greatest author of them all.  I have not included a complete list of his works, but rather the ones I am familiar with.  Read them slowly and let them sink in: Scott needs time to digest for optimum results.

*Note* You will find that higher quality versions of many of these books are available from Heritage History
