New Historical Fiction Set Way Back in Time
"One of the great pleasures of historical fiction is the time-travel element. In the hands of a skilled author, works of historical fiction can transport the reader to long-gone eras and locales, thereby tinkering with the very fabric of the time-space continuum! Dangerous work! It's amazing, really, that this industry isn't regulated.
Specialists in this particular genre typically do very meticulous research before assembling their stories. By way of existing writing and other artifacts from the historical record, the author selects those critical details that make the era come to life.
It's always fun to climb into the Way Back Machine, but you know what's even more fun? The Way-Way Back Machine. Below we've collected 33 books with plotlines set, entirely or partially, in the 18th century or earlier. All of these books are recently published, relatively, and have been critically well-received."
