Historical Novels

"I like to create imaginary characters and events around a real historical situation. I want readers to feel: OK, this probably didn't happen, but it might have." - Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth.

We like to read science fiction, an imagining of the future. So why should we not enjoy historical novels, an imagining of the past? Here you will find stories that take place in bygone ages and epochs that breathe with life as if having happened only yesterday.
