Make sure it's not you who gets your historical fiction horribly, hilariously wrong.
on 1 February 2013
Great fun and also very useful.
Brisk, clear explanations of so many things that would-be writers of historical fiction (and all too many published ones too) either get horribly, hilariously wrong, or don't even know they should check in the first place.
Covers everything from thou/thee/thy/thine, to how titles work in the aristocracy, (im)proper behaviour in different classes and genders, the lessons to be learnt from programmes like The 1900 House, and of course those underpants.
