The latest issue of Renaissance Magazine is out. There’s lots of castle lore, a comprehensive listing of Renaissance Fairs, ads for all sorts of intriguing stuff that’s hard to justify purchasing because you (mostly) live in the 21st century, and the Tomes of Lore column. In the latter is my review of Allison Weir’s latest historical novel: Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession.
I’ve been writing articles and reviews for this periodical for several years now. It’s a fun publication that appeals to RenFaire enthusiasts, as well as people who enjoy popular history and historical novels, games, and music. And since I’m spending a great deal of time in the Renaissance these days, I have several more reviews in the pipeline, most of them for recently released histories.
The reason for this historical immersion is that I’m currently writing a novel set in a dark fantasy version of Elizabethan England. More info coming soon!
