A new blog launched this month, Corsets, Cutlasses, and Candlesticks. Their focus? History, fiction, and, of course, that blending of the two—historical fiction (one of my favorite genres). Their inaugural post, “Why Read Historical Fiction?” provides a great introduction to their blog and the value of reading historical fiction and including it in courses of study. Check them out. Their content has proven valuable and enjoyable so far. I think you will like it, too.
