Historical fiction has a great deal to offer as its readers and devotees have always known.

Features include: an overview of the field; a consideration of significant writers of historical fiction from the 19th century onwards; a sense of the various historical eras commonly explored (Stone Age to World War II); a discussion of commonly raised issues, themes and topics such as child labour, slavery and migration; a forum for writers to reveal their insights into the writing of historical fiction, with contributions from Julian Atterton, Berlie Doherty, Michael Foreman and Philip Pullman; and evidence of children and students engaging creatively with historical fiction.
