Adding a couple that I'm planning on reading for the Genre Non-Fiction RYO Challenge

The Wonderful and Surprising History of Sweeney Todd by Robert L. Mack
The Strange True Tale of Frankenstein's Creator Mary Shelley by Catherine Reef

I couldn't find them in the isfdb, so I'm not sure if they qualify for indexing here, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

The Caruso, Durst and Harrow are all in. To soon for the Chambers (not even a jpg of the book cover yet). Ask again about the first of the new year.

Sounds like powerful stuff but more historical fiction than historical fantasy. If you've read it and it does have fantastic elements in it, fine. It's just, from what I can see about it, that doesn't appear to be the case.

The Mary Shelley was a no-brainer. We discussed Sweeny Todd and I think since the good doctor (Hannibal Lecter) is in, that swayed it. I also included the original story as well.

It definitely seems to have some fantasy elements in it, and I'm only at the end of the first chapter so far. The setting is analogous with Elizabethan England, but instead of Queens Mary and Elizabeth we have Queens Maris and Bethany, there's a setup for a conflict between the 'old' religion (Eucharistian) and the 'new' religion, the main character refers to 'The Maker' instead of God, and so on. Even this early into the text I'm definitely getting a historical fantasy vibe, rather than straight historical fiction.

Hi,

I read Hawk's Flight by Carol Chase as one of my Unloved selections for the 12:1 reading challenge. I haven't been able to find it on the site. It's an older book, published in 1991 by Baen. Thanks for your help.

Hi finminer, the 7 novels are eligible for entry into the database, but none of the short fiction works are eligible unless they were award finalists, appeared in one of the big "Best of" anthologies, or were published as standalone physical books. (For more info on what we add to the database, please see the FAQ, which is linked at the bottom of every page on this site.)
