Hi Shelley,

A couple of months ago I was on this site asking the same question, and some people were kind enough to give me the names of some other authors who write in the regency genre. Claire Darcy, Sylvia Thorpe, Marian Devon and Emily Hendrickson are the authors that were suggested to me. I have only read Claire Darcy's novels, and I would recommend them to you if you don't want steamy scenes. They aren't bad, quite light, and you do laugh out loud in some places. Personally I feel that she was practically copying Heyer's style, but anyway. I haven't read any of the others yet so I can't give you my verdict on them.
Happy Reading!

Over the past year or so I have been reading (and LOVING) Georgette Heyer's novels... trying to pace myself. Sadly, I have one book left - I knew this day would come. I have been looking for another author that writes novels simlar to Austen or Heyer - great dialogue, regency romance. I checked the Regency Reading link and other sites for suggestions but, while you shouldn't "judge a book by it's cover", based on the bookscover and descriptions, they were a little more steamy than I am looking for. Can anyone recommend an author with a similar tenor to Austen and Heyer. Thanks!

Hi Kristy,

Thanks a bunch. Actually, I'm doing a research study about "out of print" novels in Australia. I have never seen a Heyer novel in a book store. Only in libraries or second hand book stores. I just wanted to double check. Is there anyother forum where I can check? Any other novels of Heyer that are out of print in Australia (in particular)?

Thanks a bunch!!

Heya
The grand sophy is still being published by Arrow over here but i do not know if it is different in australia
I completely agree about the adaptation of regency buck i couldnt listen to any more after Judith began talking it was terrible, but the BBC have not made film adaptations of GH novels as far as i am aware, but their adaptation of austen's pride and prejudice was very good if you have a spare 7hrs :) i think the only films made so far is the spoof of the reluctant widow that GH walked out of the cinema instead of watching and the german arabella

Hi,

I need a clarification about "Grand Sophie". Is this book still being published? Where can I get information about this?

Thanks.

Anna,
a) your English is fine;
b) the book referred to in Duplicate Death is They Found Him Dead. There is an excerpt in the Novels - Mystery section of this website and you can see it mentions Timothy Harte who was much younger and bent on aiding the police to solve the mystery.

As for your other questions, I don't know. I think the BBC should have done films of the GH books but we would likely HATE THEM. I listened to the BBC adaptation of Regency Buck and was appalled. I never expected Lord Worth to sound disgusting.

Christine, I think you could make ratafia; if my memory serves, it's wine with sugar in it. (You could just serve lemonade. Or champagne!) Remember in The Convenient Marriage, the hero has to steel himself to drink ratafia.
If you must, here is a link to some recipes:

After chatting with my friend who has been a long time devootee like myself, I discovered that my son's tutor, and her friend across the road were also great fans. So we have started the Mt Eden (a suburb of Auckland) Georgette Heyer Appreciation Society. We meet every 2 months, read the same book, (this month it's Venetia), take turns at hosting it at our homes and the hostess makes up a fun quiz based on the book. So much fun - last time the hostess hired a costume - sadly, her husband refused to model it for us. We even have cucumber sandwiches. Anyone know where I can get some Ratafia?

Hi everybody Wave

My grandmother introduced me to GH when I was fourteen or so. I read her books over and over again, until they fall apart.
Also I am careful not to buy to many of her books at once. I like to look forward to some "new" GH books out there.

Why aren't there any GH movies?
And why aren't there more books in GH-quality?

I have got a question. I am currently reading "Duplicate Death". There are some references to another crime story. I couldn't find the book. Does anybody know the name? Thank you so much for answering Smile

PS sorry for my bad english

I did a quick google for you both and you might like to look at this site which is obviously written by an author who writes regency books

I've loved Georgette Heyer's novels since the late 1960's (someone mentioned Pan editions and I had such a wonderful memory of finding those).

I've been collecting the hard back copies of GH's books with the Barbosa dust jackets (which I so love) and I continue to search for them. I recently picked up a book called Georgette Heyer's Regency London, which is proving to be a good read. I'm at the start of the book and the author is describing all the areas GH covers in her books and tells you how to get to them. I'm looking forward to my next visit to England, LOL. I'd appreciate any inputs regarding a good "Regency" map of clubs, stores, special houses (like Carlton house).

I love reading & re-reading GH's books. She has given me hours and hours of pleasure.
I'm going to London soon and would love to do a Georgette Heyer walking tour - does anyone have any ideas about how to go about that?

I've loved Heyer's books for years now and am delighted to find a place to comment like the Pump Room. I see from others' comments that they share my dilemma about favorites--how they shift depending on which I've been re-reading! My current favorites would have to be(not necessarily in order):

These Old Shades
Devil's Cub
Friday's Child
Cotillion
Regency Buck
Venetia

Wonderful characters, wonderful humor. The only other author that makes me laugh out loud like Heyer is Wodehouse.

My grandfather, a British naval vice-admiral, recommended Georgette Heyere to me as an avid reader and bored with Eng. Lit. at the age of 12. How grateful I am to him!!
In the decades since, whenever I get swamped with overwork (like this last week) I plunge back into the Heyer world and read a dozen volumes until my guilty conscience wins.

Now I'm replacing the worn out Pan paperbacks with hardbacks, a slowish process, in the course of which I recently found to my great delight that there are two titles I haven't yet read!

By the way, the Jane Aiken Hodge biography is required reading for any Heyer-phile.
