Thanks to everyone who has helped this community to grow in popularity it’s very much appreciated and it makes us feel great that you agree with us that this genre is one that deserves its own place in the world, with publishers, with awards and reviews.
I’m always wanting to provide the best service I can, and the accessibility to the List and the information shown on it.
Is there anything we can do to improve the list?
These are a few of the ideas I was thinking of:
1. Do you want a clear difference Historical Fiction as defined by the Historical Novel Society and fiction that just happens to have been written in the past? The HNS defines Historical Fiction as: “a novel must have been written at least fifty years after the events described, or have been written by someone who was not alive at the time of those events (who therefore approaches them only by research).”
E.g. A list of stories that were written contemporarily and a seperate list of books that fall into the above category. Maurice in one list, At Swim Two Boys in another.
2. Would it be useful to have the star rating showing in the List? And/or on the Reviews Done page?
3. We’d like to review f/f but so far we are having difficulty finding enough people to review m/m, so sadly unless that changes, it will have to stay m/m for now.
4. We’d thought we’d slip films in here and there – anyone want to do them? Films good idea? Or not?
Anything else, just let us know.
