Right after this forum was created, someone posted a link to a website that had Historical Fiction books listed by time period. I believe it was a .edu website. I remember that I was able to find tons of books about Ancient Rome and Greece.


My computer crashed last night and I lost all my bookmarks, and was wondering if anyone remembers which website I am looking for. Thanks!

I'm not sure but I'd love to hear about it!

I've seen several sites that have the books seperated into time periods. I'll spend a bit of time digging through my bookmarks today and see what I find. I have a ridiculous amount of books sites bookmarked so it's very possible that the site is there. I'll post what I find here. At least, this will give me something to do today. I took the week off from my various activities so that I could loan my car to my friend for the week and I am going stir-crazy!!

Thanks Valli. I do remember this, and it might be helpful, since you will know its what I am looking for if you see it. At least on the Greece and Rome pages, some of the book titles have * next to them, and at the bottom of the page it says something like *=Highly Recommended. Also, on this site, Historical Mysteries are included, but they are indicated by an M next to the title. Hope this helps! Thanks again!

Not sure if I'm the 'guilty' party or not, but I did post some sites 'provided by my 'beloved library':

The Historical Novel Society historicalnovelsociety.org has a section of book reviews.

Daniel S. Burt (see below) has a useful list posted at Link

If you go to the bottom of the page, click on the Home button.  It will take you to book lists broken down by topic, i.e., Greece, Dark Ages, Romance, etc.
