HNS Editors' Choice books for August

These are online at the Historical Novel Society website now. 17 titles this time, out of a total of 250-odd for the issue (it's going to be a big one). I haven't posted the complete table of contents yet, because last time I posted them early, we started getting requests from publicists and authors right away - and the editors don't have the issue in hand yet. Barring any problems, the issue will probably be back from the printer within a couple weeks.

My personal pick this time was Gretchen Craig's Creole family saga Always and Forever, and yes, the price is correct on the review - $3.99 for U.S., $5.99 for Canada. Zebra has been pricing its debut novels very competitively. How can you go wrong at that price? Also on the list is Sarah C's review of Ruth Downie's Medicus and the Disappearing Dancing Girls. Anyone read any of the others?
