Prof and UVA go to great lengths to present an exciting, interesting, comprehensive course. Provides an excellent into to the genre, followed by outstanding interviews with first-rate authors. The genre was relatively new to me (previously not a historical fiction reader), so I discovered many wonderful authors. I'm currently reading several and returning to the interviews when I finish. Prof and authors contribute to the forum, too. Outstanding course!
