Full disclosure: one of my stories is featured in this book, so I'm inclined to like it!

Having said that, I don't think that it would be out of place for me to admire what this anthology does, and praise it for a great collection of historical fiction and poetry. Unlike speculative and literary fiction, historical writing is not showcased enough in journals and magazines, and this anthology is refreshing in its ambition and scope.

A glance at this collection shows you just how many worlds histor

History Will Be Kind is publisher and author Meredith Allard's first anthology containing historical short fiction, non-fiction, and poetry from established and emerging authors.
Full disclosure: I have a piece published in this book. With that said, I discovered compelling and entertaining works. "Where It Hurts" by Lucy Ribchester set on the shores of the Thames is 1768 packs an emotional wallop. Hal O' Leary offers his first person account of his World War II service in "To Die or Not to Die"

Some pretty good stories in this collection. Most of the stories were not to my usual taste. I gave the four stars based on the stories that were in line with my usual reading. A good book if you enjoy non science fiction historical fiction.
