Im currently reading my partner's book and am really getting into it!  Wink  though... hard to think of crafty things whilst the plot thickens Wink


I can't wait to see what book you have selected for me  Grin I'm especially glad I had a book on my list that is turning out to be a great read!! I am still waiting for your book to arrive - the one I picked just kept jumping out at me and giving me ideas  Cheesy
yes first few pages ( as always i find) i was finding my feet in the book - then the last 120 pages or so seemed to drift by yesterday... ( probably helps that i have lots of time to do nothing whilst here in Fiji Wink)  Ideas for your _____ keep coming Smiley

I've got everything planned out and I've got the book (hooray!).   Smiley   I'll be starting soon as I need to wrap up another item for a different swap first.   Smiley

I'm thinking about running a Victorian-era D&D campaign, and I want to read some books to help me get ideas/get in the mood. 

Anybody have any favorite Victorian-era novels that are either based in that time or were written then?

Okay, I know I could Google or come up with my own list, but asking book-loving Craftsters seems more fun.   Grin

In actual swap-related news, I've started on my medium. Smiley

Do you need something with battles in it, or just that period in general? And do you want to avoid steampunk or would that theme be ok?

Just in general, really.  Anything is good.  Smiley  When I thought about it further it occurred to me that steampunk would actually make for pretty neat D&D.

The Parasol Protectorate Series by Gail Carriger would be the perfect influence for a D&D campaign! It's steampunk, set in the Victorian era, and has monsters!  Grin

I agree, the Parasol Protectorate series is fantastic! Boneshaker by Cherie Priest might be good too, it had zombies. Although I think it might be between the Civil War and the Victorian era. I liked the Vampire Empire series by Clay and Susan Griffith too, but that seems to be more hit and miss with people. Anything by HG Wells would be good, he wrote during that time. War of the Worlds is pretty graphic for the time. The Bookman by Lavie Tidhar (and its two sequels) might be good for this; a lot of authors and their the characters from Victorian literature are alive in the book (Sherlock and Moriarty, Captain Nemo and Jules Verne). It's an amazing book.

Now I have some new books/series to add to my "to read" list! Thanks!
