Regency literature is generally set during the period of the English Regency or early 19th century. Rather than simply being versions of contemporary stories transported to a historical setting, Regency novels are a distinct genre with their own plot and stylistic conventions that derive from the works of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, and from the fiction genre known as the novel of manners. In particular, most Regencies feature a great deal of intelligent, fast-paced dialog between the protagonists and (traditionally) very little explicit sex or discussion of sex.
