A couple of pre-Labor Day thoughts:
Check out Pauline Montagna's The Romance of History, an ezine discussing historical romance and historical fiction. There's an essay by Pauline about Regency romances, an article by Francis A. Miniter about James Clavell's Shogun, and a couple of reviews by yours truly.
I've got myself a Myspace site up now, having browsed over there a few times to see what the fuss was all about. Myspace is quite entertaining, though heavy on the ads, and it's fun seeing who shows up there. (Shakespeare, Richard III, and Henry VIII's wives all have profiles there. So far, only Shakespeare has visited my page, but I've hopes that the rest of the gang will follow.)
