The Historical Fictions Research Network

There are SO MANY deaths of Nelson. Which is the real one? And how to define real?

Over on Vulpes Libris I write enthusiastically about the Historic Fictions Research Network conference, how amateur historians rewrote the Battle of Trafalgar, and the invented town of Agincourt, Iowa, that teaches architecture in North Dakota. It was all about the fictions that history tells us, and it was great. Follow the Network @HFRN, and the Journal of Historical Fictions @journalhistfics.

Now posting on Vulpes Libris: Let’s celebrate the migrant authors of English literature

One Day Without Us is a British grassroots campaign to celebrate the contributions that EU citizens and migrants from all over the world make and have made to daily British life. It culminates in a national day of action all over the UK on Monday 20 February 2017. See what else is happening in your area.

Over on Vulpes Libris I began the invitation list for a party to celebrate all the migrant authors who have made English literature what it is today. Who do you think should be invited?
