Historical Fantasy

There are plenty of lists for historical fiction out there so I thought I would do something a little different.

You may be wondering what is Historical Fantasy?

They are books that are set in some historical period of time (opposed to a completely invented world) and yet have fantasy elements to them and deal with magic or the paranormal, or they are books about subjects of myth and legend.
