On Saturday, I was lucky enough to be on a fantastic panel at Balticon called ‘Weirding the Regency: Fantasy of Manners, Napoleonic Space Opera, and More.’ It was the panel I was most excited about all weekend, since the program description read like it had been written just for me! Historical fantasy and space opera are two of my absolute favorite genres as a reader AND a writer! I was joined by awesome co-panelists John G. Walker and Melissa Scott, and together with a fantastic audience we got to nerd out extravagantly.
I promised while I was there that I would write up the huge list of books I blurted out as recommendations, since I’m a fast talker (and an overly enthusiastic hand-waver). So if you were there, here you go! And if you weren’t, you should definitely still keep reading, because these are some awesome books and I highly recommend you read them. (And if you want to nerd out about them with me, I’m ALL FOR IT! Get your wavy hands ready.)
