CIAO everyone
Ive just finished reading The private world of GH by Jane Aiken Hodge , and Id like to recommend it to whom have not read it yet. A precious picture of Georgette and her work. It will be more enjoyable when youve already read most of her books, its so great a pleasure to meet them chapter by chapter along GHs years.
P.S. if difficult to find it, youll easily get it on www.amazon.co.uk
Have a nice new month ! And thanks again, Sally

Hi:

Like all readers of GH Regency books, I have been a true fan for over 40 years. I collected almost all of her Regency Novels in paperback in the 70's and then had a "clean out" and donated them all to the local hospital where I live. But guess what! I am in the collecting mode again, and each time Chapters/Indigo books have a new one available, I order it. Now my collection is almost complete. I do have two volumes containing 5 stories each. These would have been printed in the late 70's and were gifts, so I kept them for myself. I haven't been able to get a copy of A Civil Contract or The Toll Gate yet, but I am sure I will find these on line.

Maybe tonight is the time for me to read Arabella again. I do so love these characters, or of course Friday's Child.

It's just a pity for me that my own daughter shows no interest in GH, but I at least have introduced one of my friends to her books.Wave

For me, GH books are an absolute treasure. Finding them here is like discovering Gold!

My top 3 so far - The grand Sophy, Sylvester, Faro's daughter.

Hi Sally,

Doing a great job - thanks!
Reading through the various items on your site, I had a look at the dustjacket/dustwrapper pictures you have on view. A great help for anyone still collecting GH with good covers (like me.
I have dust covers on a couple of GH books that you mention, but are not illustrated. Are you interested in me sending you photos of my copies? They are not always the first editions - but perhaps better than nothing? I have dustjackets with the following books:
No Wind of Blame - Dutton 1967
Behold here's Poison - Dutton 1971
Why Shoot a Butler - Heinemann 1966
Envious Casca - Dutton 1969
and a large print The Unfinished Clue by Thorpe (Ulverston) 1972 - This is a very 'simple' black, red and white design.

If you are interested, let me know and I'll attach them to an e-mail for you

I have really enjoyed reading about everyone's first experience with GH's works. Like many other fans, I have read and re-read all of her Regency novels. I have been a fan for almost 40 years. I know my tastes have changed through the years, but my top five favorites have to be These Old Shades, The Talisman Ring, Regency Buck, The Corinthian (my first!) and Friday's Child. I would have to agree that with some others that The Foundling has been my least favorite, and I have tried to plow through it several times at various points in time. I came to the murder mysteries late in life (never was interested in what I considered "modern day" works), but I have really enjoyed those as well. I've been holding off reading the very last one for a rainy day--I don't want to feel like there's no new GH for me to enjoy. Like many other fans I've read here, I feel like Masterpiece Theater would be the best group to launch her work. I'd like to see a production of A Civil Contract.

I've about cornered all of my local bookstores and libraries for ANY GH books. I'm going to have to start ordering them from the web. How is it that this becomes an obsession so fast? I've forgotten all other authors but Ms. Heyer. I have to admit, that I had a hard time reading her writing in the beginning, but have fallen very much in love with all of the books I have acquired. Here's to all the fans out there.

Hi Ladies,

I, too, am a huge fan of GH. I am also a romance writer of historicals (though not Regency).

Her dry, classical english humour and wit floors me with each book I read.

I was fortunate enough to attend a workshop at our writers conference last year, on the subject of Regency. It was there I met Jen Kloester and listened to her fabulous talk about GH. She'd brought with her many of the original and rare copies.

Her passion for GH is infectious!

Of course I bought her book, GH Regency World, and I recommend it to anyone!

Its unfortunate the some (uneducated) people see all romance novels as 'bodice rippers' (as a writer, I get it too sometimes), but it's a sad fact that many publishers are pushing authors to 'spice it up' more and more.

They say it's what the buyers want!

But Gh has been around for longer than any of them could hope to be and she is still selling strong!

They should buy a few of her books and get a clue. She can deliver brilliant romance with a flutter of a fan and the curve of a lip.

She is a true legend.

My fav's are Lady of Quality, Frederica and Venetia.

Take Care,


Erin

Hi! I'm new here. I'm in the 50+ year old set and have just discovered GH. After the first book (Black Sheep) I thought I'd try another one but would not try to read all her books. Well, after the second book i was hooked. I've liked almost all of the books although some more than others. Every time I finish a book I say "I think this is my favorite". I keep finding new favorites. I just finished Devil's Cub and Masqueraders. I loved them both. Sadly, I've read about 28 of them, so am nearing the end.

Thanks for suggestions of other authors I'll give some of them a try.

Hi all,
Just wanted to say that i am a history undergrad and one of my professors on the french revolution was talking to me about historical fiction and when i mentioned my love of heyer he recommended An Infamous Army which just shows how well researched her works were as he is an incredible snob lol
Also Angie i think you are right a commercial production of the books would probably turn it into a bodice ripper and destroy the greatness of the works (though not actually reading of it if that makes any sense)

Hi Angie!

You are not the only one who copies her posts! It drives me nuts sometimes.

Angie I agree with you hundrned percent. My favorite book is An Infamous Army and ofcourse Devil's cub! I haven't read Sylvester yet, but it is being reissued soon I guess sometime in March so I am looking forward of reading it.

Saying that in my opinion all GH's books are great to read! I am trying to get all her books so I can have all her collection. Funny thing is there were so many negative reviews for 'Charity Girl' that I was not sure if I wanted to buy it and then my friends here in the Pump Room advised me to read it :) Boy I loved it! Again I agree with Angie the naration in her books is the best, no other regency author is like her except for Jane Austeen of course!

I wish we could all meet to discuss her books one day :) That would be great :)

Have a great day all of you!

Anna

Simonetta (and all of you discussing these points)--

Yes, I have thought about Phoebe as a portrait of Heyer as a young girl. It's not so far-fetched, particularly where her extreme shyness is described.

Relative to the discussions of whether one should conceal one's penchant for reading Heyer, I think a snobbish or otherwise adverse reaction would reveal more about the other person than about the Heyer-reader. Anyone who would condemn an author because other ignorant people refer to her works as 'bodice-rippers' (singularly inapposite as we all know; Donimic ripped open the shoulder of Mary's dress but that's the only case I can think of and they were in public), lays him- or herself open to charges of prejudice and worse. Heyer was a serious writer who used the methods of scholarly research in her work. The fact that her books sold so well might be a source of envy among less successful aspiring authors; I tend to recommend An Infamous Army to people who think Heyer is a lightweight (after I ask, 'Have you read her books?').

And as for the idea of filming the books, I would love to see a Masterpiece Theatre presentation of Cotillion or The Grand Sophy (a more commercial production might put in things that aren't there, such as physical contact), but again, what I really love is the narration (I have often wished life had a narrator); and of course, we would all argue if a single word were left out!

I have read other so-called Regency authors and they just don't have the depth of plot and wonderful language that Heyer does. Second best for me are the mysteries of the Classic era, such as Dorothy L. Sayers and Margery Allingham.

Am I the only one who copies her posts onto the clipboard in case the captcha code undoes her?

Hi Amanda,

Sadly literary snobbery is rampant in this day and age. Sometimes I read works that have won the nobel prize or some other such grand accolade, and think to myself," WHY am I reading this rubbish?"
I personally believe that we should read want we want to, not what society says is "good." I genuinely enjoy Austen and the Brontes, I also enjoy " escapist" novels like Eragon and Heyer romances.
I've also read bits of books that were written in the regency era, and they are so funny! I can understand Austen mocking them in Northanger Abbey, she has good reason.

Hi Amanda!

I agree with you totally! I think GH is one of the best leterary writers of the 20th century.
