I am thrilled that many of her books are now in e-book format. I can carry her library in my hand.

While there is a timeline discrepancy between “Devil’s Cub” and “An Infamous Army”, there is no historical discrepancy in “These Old Shades” (well, there is one that I know of, but not having to do with King James or King Charles).

I don’t know if your copy might have a misprint, but Justin refers to “King James III” (not James II) and his son, King Charles III, which would be the titles used by those who believed that the male descendants of James II were the rightful heirs to the thrones of England, Ireland, and Scotland. James III was the son of James II, and known as “The Old Pretender”. His son Charles, better known as “Bonnie Prince Charlie”, was “The Young Pretender”. While Avon’s father fought for James in the Uprising of 1715, Avon aided and abetted Charles in 1746, the year of the Battle of Culloden.

“Elector George” (and you can just hear the disdain in Justin’s voice) is George II of Hanover.

The timing of the book – Fall of 1756 to Spring of 1757 – is correct.

I spent a long time writing a contribution, only to be told I had too many characters in my name, and the legnthy period of time I had spent was wasted because it was erased.

Georgette Heyer wasn't very patient with "new technology" and you have lost more than just my words.

This is a fabulous site. I have loved and collected Georgette Heyer novels for many, many years. Favorites are Devil's Cub, Arabella, The Masqueraders and These Old Shades. It's hard to pick only one.

Ebay has two new listings for the Leonié and Sophy figurines.

Any word on when we might see an adaptation on Film or TV for one of GH's fab books? It seemed like a year or so ago, there was a film maker that had the rights to The Grand Sophy? I hope this will one day happen.

Thanks for a great site. Elizabeth

An alert to all Heyer fans in the Phoenix area -- the Poisoned Pen Bookstore is putting on a mini-conference at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel which features a Georgette Heyer Regency Tea, June 25th, 3-5pm. It costs $25 and authors Dana Stabenow (that's me!), Diana Gabaldon, Stephanie Barron, Sharon Kay Penman, and P.F. Chisholm among others will be talking about Heyer and our favorite lines from the books. (Mine's from The Unknown Ajax, you'll have to come to find out which one.) Join us! The conference is free but you have to register with will@poisonedpen.com so we know how big a room and many chairs we'll need. See you there!

I've been reading Georgette Heyer's Regency romances since a group of us discovered her in high school. I loved These Old Shades so much that I named my son after Justin Alastair. Lately I've been rereading all of Heyer's Regencies in their new trade PB versions, and have just (a minute ago) finished Cotillion. I had forgotten how wonderful that particular story was! Came online to find what I might about Heyer, and ran across this delightful Web site. Very well done indeed--many thanks.

I have just discovered Georgette Heyer reading These Old Shades. I absolutely loved the book and look forward to reading more of her work. I am wondering if there is any information out there about how she might have done her research for her historical fiction? Especially with regards to the types of resources she used to get details about the particular time she wrote about. Does anyone have an idea what might have been in her own personal library?

Regarding the posting about George Wrotham's name and its pronunciation in 'Friday's Child' - I believe it's pronounced ROOTEM, after the Kent village of the same name. Heyer was familiar with Kent and Sussex and chose many place names to feature as surnames

I have been reading Heyer ever since the 1940's. I have never found any book of hers I did not like. Some of my favorites are: Sprig Muslin, The Quiet Gentleman, The Foundling, False Colors, The Unknown Ajax, Cotillion, Frederica, A Civil Contract, Cousin Kate.

I have been reading GH's books for 33 years. My mom got me the Masqueraders and Friday's Child for my 9th birthday (read a lot as I was home schooled on a boat). I now have multiple print editions of every story. I can't recommend them enough to anyone who wants a great romance with a well written, intelligent story. I've gotten a lot of people hooked on her books :)

I don't know if you have already seen it but the BBC has put Doris Langley Moore's 1957 fashion series in the Archive site. Each part covers from about 1750 to 1956 and is 14 minutes long (in colour). I found it extremely interesting, especially the showing of the gradual increase from the early 1800s to the extreme crinolines of the later nineteenth century.

Very famous people show off the clothes including Vanessa Redgrave and Ron Moody!

Very "cut glass" accents which makes one wonder if Georgette Heyer spoke like that.

I spotted a VHS copy of the 1959 German adaptation of Arabella (Bezaubernde Arabella) on ebay in the last fortnight, but was unfortunatly too late to bid. it is the second time in the space of a year that I have seen on on either the german or austrian Ebay sites, so I hope to be able to obtain a copy. If i do, I will forward it to the patroness of this site. i hope some of this site have good German, as we are certain to need a translation
