Historical fiction fans unite! This is the Historical Fiction Carnival . Come one and all to joining in celebrating historical fiction. Not a fan of this genre? Join us anyway. Read some of the articles and reviews. Maybe us fans will convince you to give it a try.

I received tons of submissions for the carnival and I want to thank you all! I tried to include something from everyone who contributed.

I organized the Carnival in two main sections: 1. Historical Fiction Articles and Interviews 2. Historical Fiction Book Reviews. Since I am a arm chair traveler, I tried to organize the book reviews by country and sometimes subject. I hope it works for everyone.

I sure hope you all enjoy the carnival. Please let me know what you liked and didn’t like so I can try to improve on it if I host again. Also, leave comments on blogs that had reviews or articles that you really enjoyed. This is a great way to get to know other book bloggers and get suggestions for great books.

Most important.. Have fun!
