Historical Fiction

Historical fiction is the least popular of fiction genres. Wherever you go, historical fiction is in the shadows of the other great genre's, such as fantasy and science fiction. The genre is often the domain of historians turned novelists, or of military men and women who want to write a novel ( in which case they are often shelved as “War” instead of “Historical Fiction “further testament to the forms poor reputation).
