Have you tried any Jane Aiken Hodge, Morgan? She has admitted to being a Georgette Heyer imitator in her youth and she was the author who wrote the biography.

Thank you for the recommendations of Catherine Fellows and Clare Darcy, They are wonderful. If anyone else knows of similar authors in the regency vein that write clean, funny romances please post more names. Too bad Heyer did not have more time, she probably had lots more ideas. Also if anyone knows the name of the Heyer imitators that she was going to sue, those would be interesting to read. They are referenced often but I can't find any names.

My older sister introduced me to the world of Georgette Heyer as a teenager. I loved her characters from the first pages and have been hooked for almost 30 years. I've found paperback copies of almost all the titles and am working on a hardcover collection. It's silly, but I've saved one book, totally unread, because I can't bear to think that there are no more wonderful, unknown stories awaiting me. I think that this is the year I read "An Infamous Army". Hello to all those who inhabit the "world of Heyer" along with me - read on!

Hi Tina
Avon has always been my favourite hero, no matter what the colour of his eyes, since I started reading the stories in my teens, a long time ago!
Like many others I have returned to the stories over and over again.

Has anyone noticed the color of Avon's eyes changed from These Old Shades, wherein they were hazel, to Devil's Cub in which they were a "hard grey"? And in the Black Moth, when Avon was Andover, they were green. I really wish she had kept them as hazel in DC. I think Avon was my favorite hero.

TRW as a film...

I am so glad to have seen it, APPALLING as it is.

And can we talk about the men's HAIR???

I venture to say that no one who had not read the book could figure out what was going on. The fifties was not a good time for film, imho; has anyone seen those Sherlock Holmes films that were made at that time? Public television used to run them late at night and there were NO credits except for the producer whose name was Sheldon something. Those were the same degree of awful.

Back to the subject, WHAT was all that necking going on--in the early 1800s--in her BEDROOM--with Francis Cheviot which is SO bogus; and where was the dog--and that woman was not her old governess.

I suppose the filmmakers wanted a script that had more action and less talking but that was NOT the way to set about it. I vote for Emma Thompson to write the script for the next one and star in it. I think she would make a fabulous Sarah Thane in The Talisman Ring.

Ohmygod The film is awful :-) The main character has NOTHING to do with Heyer's Elinor Rochdale. The actor playing Carlyon is dreadful ( harsh instead of steady, and so bad-looking)
And the whole film is coarse, it has nothing of the "finesse" of Georgette Heyer, no awareness of Regency Manners. Plot : definitely it is NOT Heyer's "Reluctant Widow".
I easily understand why Georgette was disappointed with it !!!

I've found the subtitles rather distracting and the sound track very blurred but it is interesting to see. It started quite like the book but is gradually drifting away. I've only got as far as Part 3.

We are VERY much obliged to you! Having just watched parts 1 and 2 I can tell you that it has almost nothing to do with anything Heyer wrote. But it's a pleasure to watch it anyway. The clothes are great. Are those Greek subtitles?

I have been an avid GH fan since I found some of her books (second hand) in a little corner grocery store when I was 15. I have read nearly all of her regency and historical books and a few of the mysteries. Once I started reading GH, Harlequin Romances just didn't "have it" anymore. I find it ironical that in the US, Harlequin now has the copyright to her books. When I was a teen, I read GH with a dictionary beside my bed. This greatly enhanced my appreciation of her writing ability and command of the English language. She is one of the few authors I know who can run words around and make them do whatever she wants them to. I personally think this is what gives her such a wide appeal. I have always wanted to be a writer, and when I read My Lord John and found that it ended in the middle of a sentence, I was elated, as I am in the habit of doing this, also. I decided that perhaps there was hope for me.
I am delighted to know that The Talisman Ring has been adapted for the stage and wonder what other of her books have been made into plays. I have wanted to write a stage play of Faro's Daughter. As to what book of Jane Austen's GH finished: JA's last novel was called Sanditon and I have read it. Unless she wrote under a different name, GH was not the author who finished this book. The book was quite disappointing to me, and certainly not in GH style.
In recommending other regency authors, the closest I have found to GH for wit and just fun reading is Joan Smith, although some of her books are much better than others. My favorite of JS books is Imprudent Lady.
Hope some of this has been informative--I know it's rather long. I knew that such a good writer had to have a lot of fans out there somewhere.

I never noticed that and I have the same edition! I expect I knew the story so well I only read what I expected to see.

Unfortunately Jane Aiken Hodge died just a month ago in sad circumstances. She was given a long obituary in "The Times"

"Jane Aiken Hodge, writer, was born on December 4, 1917. She died on June 17, 2009, aged 91."

I have been a devoted reader of Ms. Heyer's romances for over 43 years. They have gotten me through some ghastly times in my life, for which I am very grateful. I have just read Jane Aiken Hodge's "The Private World of Georgett Heyer" and found it wonderfully informative of the dear lady. However, she does make a glaring error on Page 39 (my copy is 1984 Bodley Head). She is discussing the plot of "Devil's Cub" and Ms. Hodge is explaining how Mary Challoner will not marry Vidal to save her reputation because she thinks he is not in love with her, so she consents to "elope with his SISTER'S pompous lover". Not true; the 'pompous lover', Frederick Comyn, is secretly betrothed to Juliana Marling who was Vidal's COUSIN. Vidal had no siblings. I imagine this has been sitting out there for some time, since 1984, to be exact, but I have not found this 'catch' in any of the Pump Room Postings I have read thus far. I much enjoy the site, and long may it and all of you endure.

Was thrilled to find this site devoted to GH. I have been reading her books since I was in high school when my aunt introduced me to them. That was over 45 years ago and I continue to read them again and again. Pure entertainment that makes a gloomy day much brighter. I have to say that Devils Cub is my all time favorite and I don't think I will ever tire of reading it.

I am perfectly aware that the GH-novel one is currently reading becomes ones favourite :-) Anyway I've just re-read UNKNOWN AJAX and I rate it excellent ! Every GH features are at their best there : the beautiful clever Prose, the characters' portrait, the elegance and wit, the climax...
Do you think the same ?
