Gaslight - Stories of Another Time
For most lovers of history they have one certain era or time period that they favor when it comes to fiction. For some it may be ancient historical fiction, for others it may be more 'recent' Jane Austen type stories. And yet, there are others who are avid readers of old military fiction. Some may even choose nothing but steampunk.
Well, the good news for all of you historical fiction readers is that Gaslight has a little of everything all in one!
This anthology offers a variety of stories that have a broad range of historical time periods and settings.
And that's exactly what I love about it.
From the very first story by award winning author J.S. Dunn, to the last story in the anthology, readers will be swept away to various time periods with an array of characters - from ancient seafaring towns to the Ottoman Empire and everywhere in between. You'll find stories about World War I, The Civil War, and even a fantastic steampunk story - all wrapped up in Gaslight: A Golden Light Anthology.
Gaslight is an eclectic array of historical short stories that includes historical, historical romance, historical fantasy, and so much more!
I have to add that the authors contributing to this anthology are without a doubt some of the best writers of historical fiction out there. Yes, I may be biased, but I believe it's true. I think you'll agree, though, and once you read their stories in Gaslight I'd like to encourage you to check out their other books. You won't be disappointed.
I hope you'll check out Gaslight!
