[close] The focus of this group is historical fiction set in Ancient and Medieval eras(with some post Medieval), in any geographical location. Preference is given to themes of: engaging politics, sprawling battles, drugs(errr .. mead) and debauchery. If authors like Robyn Young, Bernard Cornwell, Steven Pressfield resonate with you, this group is designed for you. If you are bursting in your seams to discuss their books, please do come in. AUTHORS welcome as READERS ONLY. Limited opportunity for self promotion exists in A&M! No romantic melodrama books please. Want to gush about this great Victorian-era romance novel you've discovered and had been smitten with? Not the right group for you. We encourage freedom of opinion on books and authors in this group. As long as the opinion is respectful and harmless and breaks no Group rules. Don't feel you can't be honest about a book or author. No matter how popular the book or author is. Our Group Motto, courtesy of George S. Patton, is: If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.
