As of 2012, Solander will merge with its sister publication, the Historical Novels Review, and will become a quarterly magazine, published by the Historical Novel Society.
The publisher (and Review Coordinator UK) is Richard Lee, who founded the society nearly 15 years ago (follow him on Twitter @histnovel). On the editorial side, Bethany Latham is Managing Editor, while I will take over as Features Coordinator, in close collaboration with Features Editors Myfanwy Cook and Cindy Vallar. The magazine also has an excellent genre-specific review section, managed by Sarah Johnson.
I can thoroughly recommend joining the Historical Novel Society – or following it on facebook or twitter.
On the next pages I’ve included a few articles and reviews written for Solander and the Historical Novels Review.
The last issue of Solander will be printed in November 2011 and the contents will soon be available on the HNS website. It includes great author profiles of Sara Sheridan, Annabel Lyon and Chris Gortner.
The 2012 HNS Conference (twitter #HNSLondon12) will be held in London – celebrating the society’s 15th anniversary and the biggest gathering yet of historical fiction writers and readers in the UK. The website is now live with further details.
