The fine folks over at the Historical Novel Society published a list of 399 novels to be released from January to August of 2012. Because I write about the early half of the 20th century, I set about analyzing the HNS list and discovered 129 from that period. That’s roughly 32%. I wonder why authors are excited about this period of the past?
Here’s how the percentages break down:
Note: only one prehistorical novel & one novel in 2nd to 5th centuries; Also, a few novels spanned more than one time period.
