The Reader's Soap Box: Your answers to our questions about the books we all love... Are you tired of certain eras or unable to find the books with the settings you want?
-- I regret the decline in quality and quantity in Regencies over the last 6-10 years. They used to take up several shelves at any new or used bookstore. Now I have to scrounge for them and too many of the new ones that are available have gotten rough or sexy. I used to be able to count on Regencies to be pleasant. There is no pretence of writing with a mind-set for that time. Georgett Heyer excelled at that. Now a-days, they just plunk a modern mind and mores into a costume. - Leslie G. --I love old west historical books. All I really read and they are getting harder to find. - JAC --Historical setting and era is all important to my enjoyment of the story. Medieval to the 1940's. Europe to colonial America. Europe - British Isles preferred. Do not like American West. I enjoy books based on historical figures. An example: Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire. I have 3 biographies of her. I love historical biography. - Barb Chaney --I never tire of any setting if the story is good. - DebPnk22@aol.com -- I read just about everything, but the all-time best are the Georgette Heyer regencies. She had a special talent for presenting heroines that you had to love and that were funny, funny, funny! When I need a lift, I pull one out for re-read. I don't like any type novel that has endless sexual olympics. Much prefer good character development, good plots, and lots of humor. -- JWS -- If a book is well-written with strong characters and a good plot, setting doesn't really matter. However, when I pick up a book and I'm not sure I can pronounce any of the characters' names (usually Welsh or Viking), I generally put it back down. It just gets too confusing.-EF -- Not really. I am now trying to collect all of G. Heyer's books and am having some trouble with that, but there are other (currently published) regencies...so if I'm forced to resort to other authors), I can get my fix. --I like all eras of writing. I think a mix of time frames keeps me interested, although I tend to gravitate toward the contemporaries. I find the stories taking place in other eras tend to invigorate my imagination perhaps a bit more than a contemporary might and I never cease to learn something new when reading a story of another era. - AL --Yes, I find a huge section on historical romances, but have a hard time finding a particular time-travel I am looking for. Sometimes the local bookstore, if they DO have the particular time-travel, it's hidden away somewhere, then takes forever to find. - Allison --I like to read all the eras because they are all good. I especially like three books written by Elizabeth Lowell Untamed, Forbidden, Enchanted. They were set in Medieval times and the heroine knew how to use weapons, knew how to heal people and also had some kind of magical power. - AY --I am somewhat alarmed by the decreasing number of publishers who do Regencies, but encouraged by the new e-publishers who do them. I simply do not read westerns and contemporaries, since they don't appeal to me, but I know that many readers enjoy them very much. - BH --I do not like Time travel or Futureristic. Scottish & Irish are getting harder to find. Jove has recently come out with a group called Irish Eyes. Each book is in different time periods. I will probably collect them all but will check out the Author first if she is unknown to me. - JS --Yes, It is hard to find a good medieval or historical story that is not a time travel story. It seems that most of the books I see in book stores are Indian, American Western or time travel romances. - JV --Era or setting isn't important, it's the characters and story that matter most to me. A good story with good characters is good in any era or setting. - LW --The stories can be set in any country in Europe, but I like England, Scotland and France the best. I have read and enjoyed novels set in India and the Middle East also. I don't even care if the setting is fictional, as in Gaelen Foley's books, as long as it is not set in the United States. - MF2 --No, it may take some looking but with all the books available I'll find something good rather easily - Nancy --I've really gotten to like military romantic suspense novels such as those written by Merline Lovelace and Vickie Hinze - NP
