    1. These (Johnson's two books on historical fiction) are some of the better readers' advisory books I've seen. They're thorough and inclusive with good annotations. As with most of what we're doing in these works, I wish there were a few short list of some of the very best books to provide entry points into historical fiction for newer readers. Bottom line: If you like historical fiction, this book will give you everything you need to find some great reading.

    2. I consider Sarah L. Johnson the top reviewer of historical fiction. I'm a big fan of her blog, Reading the Past and look forward to her posts and reviews.
