SettingA Writer of History is author M.K. Tod’s blog, devoted to the reading, writing and researching of historical fiction.

Amongst other things, M.K. takes well-thought surveys to investigate the inner workings of the genre. It is, in many ways, an illuminating reading.

Here you can find an insightful guest post by historical novelist Myfanwy Cook, focusing on the role of setting in HF, and tellingly titled “Not Just a Place”.

Oh well, read the post and, once you are finished, there is plenty to keep you browsing through the blog.
