Summary
Historical fiction is usually described by time, place, individual name, or topic. But many historical subgenres are co-opted into genres such as mystery, romance, and science fiction. Baker helps librarians focus on the aspects of historical fiction that draw readers in, and shows how to identify them quickly enough to make educated suggestions.
