Georgette Heyer in her finest. She always enjoyed social occasions with family and friends. Here she is

Heyer Society is a new website dedicated to Georgette Heyer. The amazing Rachel Hyland has created  www.heyersociety.com and it’s a great go-to site for all Heyer fans. It’s a blog and a community, with daily posts and frequent polls, Top 10 lists, and reviews. It also has excerpts from the delicious new Heyer anthology, The Literary Genius of Georgette Heyer. Rachel is an enthusiastic Heyerite and her website is a great place to discover more about the beloved author and her bestselling novels.

Heyer Society: Essays on the Literary Genius of Georgette Heyer

An anthology of 24 essays by fans, bloggers, scholars and authors. The Literary Genius of Georgette Heyer is a delightful tribute to an enduring bestseller. It will be available in both print and digital forms from
27 November 2018.

A great tribute.

I was delighted to write the Foreword for The Literary Genius of Georgette Heyer. This engaging new collection of essays about Heyer and her novels is a feast for readers. Over the years, it’s been fascinating to witness the decided shift in attitude towards Heyer. Still selling forty-four years after her death, critics and academics are beginning to sit up and take notice. Those who haven’t read her are beginning to listen to those who have. The Literary Genius of Georgette Heyer  is a timely tribute to this remarkable author and her many novels.

    1. Thanks Holly. A UK conference is a great idea and one I’ve floated with a good friend in London. We’re thinking of having one in 2021 to celebrate the centenary of The BLack Moth. What do you think?
