Baldwin, a particular period? Well, I’m about petered out on 19th century England. Something medieval sounds good – something like Connie Willis’s Doomsday Book.
eenerms, I’ve read Penman and Jennings and liked them, so I’ll trust your judgment on Cornwell. 100 Years’ War, huh? Sounds good.
Monica, the only George I’ve read is The Autobiography of Henry VIII and you’re gonna love it. Maybe I’d better pick up her others, if you say they’re good.
KidCharlemagne – that user name and you’re suggesting Roman stuff? Okay. I’ve passed up her books because I’ve thought that they’d be like costume dramas, like the old biblical movies. They’re better than that?
Primaflora, I think Dunnett might be too smart for me. I tried to read one of hers a few years ago and I was really lost, really fast. I can’t remember which one.
Brian, I have an Enquist on the shelf – you’re liking it? I’ve heard good things about The Red Tent too.
Martin, thanks for the tip on the Gibson-Sterling. Is it SF, alternate history? I’ll check out those Falco books too.
Thanks, everybody – appreciate the input!!!
