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

Heyer Society
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. A very good idea. Did you have anything in mind? I’m actually in New York next year in late June/July.

    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?

  1. I also would love a conference in the US.

    I’d also love to see more complications of essays on Heyer. I loved Heyer Society! New perspectives are always wonderful.

    1. Hi Evelyn, thanks for posting. I’m so glad you like Heyer Society. Next year is the centenary of The Black Moth and we’re hoping to hold a Heyer conferene in both the UK and the US. FIngers crossed!

  2. Went to the website for the Heyer Society and it’s pretty empty. I joined anyway, but haven’t heard anything back. Is the society still a go? Thanks!

    1. Hi Kris, yes, it’s definitely going ahead but the launch isn’t until 1 July. You’ll definitely be notified once the Society goes live and you’ll also receive your copy of Nonpareil – our monthly magazine – as well as the Weekly Post, our series of exclusive content for members only. Members’ bonuses wll be sent out this week ahead of our launch. It’s so exciting! Looking forward to celebrating the great Miss Heyer,

  3. Hi Jennifer,
    What great news! Have joined by payment but didn’t get asked for name or anything but I see from the comment above that it will all get going soon.

    1. SO lovely to hear from you Isolde and I’m thrilled that you have joined the Society. I’ll be putting up a post about it this week. Lots to look forward to!
