On these pages you will find a comprehensive, but by no means inclusive list of on-line resources for writers of historical fiction. I have included those sites I thought would be most beneficial to an author, whether a novice or seasoned professional.
Because of my interest and expertise in Victorian Britain, most of these links are to Victorian sites. There are a few others mixed in, whether they caught my eye, or were recommended by another writer.
By virtue of the nature of the World Wide Web, this site could include thousands of sources. If you've visited a particular site, you may not see it here. Let me know if it's something we could all benefit from. I'll be glad to review it for inclusion in these pages.
I've arranged these pages by topic for easiest browsing. If a link does not work properly, please contact me so I can check on it. If a link you visited previously from these pages is now missing, it is because the link no longer works and I've removed it. My apology for that, but I try to keep these pages as current as possible.
