Good Evening Maeri and other Pump Room Visitors,
I hope you enjoy collecting and reading Clare Darcy’s novels – they are well worth the trouble of finding!
I, too, love reading Regencies, and agree that they are generally looked down on, but does anyone else think, as I sometimes do, that these books are often quite literally judged by their cover? I mean that many cover pictures (mostly for paperback editions), book summaries and, occasionally, even the book titles may be somewhat misleading, and cause those who have never read a Regency set novel, to dismiss them as period bodice-rippers - a term I deplore!
If this is so, then what a pity, considering the amount of serious, painstaking research which goes into so many of them, from Georgette Heyer on. (Although, at least the new paperback editions of GH's novels are graced with more appropriate artwork).

A final thought – if a badly written, ‘actual’ Regency era novel (and they do exist), is republished today, by the Oxford University Press or Penguin Classics for example, it is instantly lauded as a classic, regardless of its literary merit or how it might originally have been received by Regency reviewers. So, dare I suggest that a little literary snobbery is also at work?

Anyway, apologies for my long and rambling post, but I don’t usually have the chance to air such topics!

Thanks Amanda for the extra information! I'm going to borrow Clare Darcy's novels and start reading. Doesn't anyone wish that the regency genre would be given more airtime? Unlike fantasy or mystery or any other "acceptable" genres, I've found that regency novels ( apart from the ones by Jane Austen) are usually scoffed at. I'm an English major, and I don't dare tell inform professers that I have a deep regard (in other words a liking tantamount to obsession)for regency era novels!

Hello,
With reference to writers with a similar style to Georgette Heyer, may I suggest the following?
CLARE DARCY and SYLVIA THORPE. (Both writers are out of print now, but it is possible to find second hand copies on Amazon, ebay, etc).
As already suggested, MARIAN DEVON - I particularly like: 'Miss Armstead Wears Black Gloves' and 'On the Way to Gretna Green'. I also recommend EMILY HENDRICKSON - a more recent Regency author, but carefully researched and from what I have read of her books so far, they are generally written in a more 'traditional' style.

Hi everyone!
I know another author who wrote funny books, but they aren't romantic. Her name is Richmal Crompton, and she wrote a series of books about a boy named William. Crompton's sense of humour is really good, and I recommend these stories for anyone who wants a good laugh.
Returning to Georgette Heyer, has anyone noticed that Venetia is probably the closest Heyer comes to sounding Austen-like? I didn't really like the book when I first read it because there wasn't much adventure, but when I reread it, I was struck by the gems of witty satire in the conversations, especially the ones between Venetia and Damerel. I also wish that Heyer had written a story about Aubrey, because I really like him and I wish I could know what happened to him.
Sorry for the long post!

Hi
Don’t you think that the character Phoebe in "Sylvester" may be a self-portrait of Georgette as a young girl ?...

I know I'm late, but I'd just like to add that Sylvester is one of my very favourites. :)

I've been hunting for more authors like GH, but sadly there just don't seem to be any to compare. :(

I'm getting The Convenient Marriage today... I can't wait to read it!

Georgette Heyer is one of the best novel writers.I wish she had written many more books.

A correction...The author's name is Marian Devon. Marion is the masculine spelling.
I, too, am eager for authors similar to GH. I first read Heyer in the 1960s and have re-read her romances every decade since.
There is only one Marian Devon book in our local library! I hope it's a good one.

Hi Anna!

Thanks for the information, I will definitely look Marion Devon up. This is the advantage of asking people, someone will always be able to help you out! Yaayyy, an author I've never heard of!
Thanks so much Anna!
Have a great day!

Hi Maeri!
The only writer who reminds me a little bit of GH is Marion Devon, but sadly it seems she is not writing anymore! Her books are funny, intelligent and her characters have depth.

Have a great day!

I absolutely adore Georgette Heyer and am reluctant to read every single one of her books at a given time ( an irresistible temptation I assure you) because I'm afraid of finishing all her books. I love to savor GH novels, they are so much fun and so clean, unlike 99% of the books today. I never have to flip over any scenes in a GH novel!
Which brings me to an important question. Do any of you guys know authors like GH, who write adventure/romance/comedies that are an absolute pleasure to read? Preferably set in historic times, and please don't mention Jane Austen because I've read all her books and absolutely adore her. Thanks a lot!Party

Dear Louisa,
I think that is a wonderful idea! I do hope you write your screenplay someday!
I think "The Grand Sopy" would make a good movie, also "The Convienent Marriage."
Also, "The Reluctant Widow".
Actually, they all would!

Hi Angela!

I will order The Foundling as well. I have come to the conclusion that anything from GH is better than any book on the marke today from the historical or regency writers, who fill their pages with nonsense!

Thanks again!

Regards,

Anna

I had to respond after Sara E. I love The Foundling . There is no great romance but the character studies are brilliant and absurd and very, very funny. I have read every one of her romances and I do think that in this book Heyer's skill as a writer is most apparent - that is, here she is most comparable to Jane Austen yet her voice remains distinctly, wonderfully her own. It is not her usual but The Foundling always places in my top three Heyer novels. (The other two are always in flux and depend on which books I have most recently reread.)
