historical fiction

If you enjoy historical novels, I suggest you check out this website

Wimpole library 

It lists over 5,000 novels by time and place. I would say the Africa and Asia sections are a bit lacking, but it's a great start, and other counties/time periods are more extensive.

I have a particular interest in the 19th Century, if you're looking to get started, I'd recommend  Micheal Faber, The Crimson Petal and the White and Lyndsay Faye, Seven for a Secret  and Kate Manning, My Notorious Life by Madame X. really look like a fantastic resource, and I know I'm going to end up spending a fair amount of time on it.
