Three Lists To Pique Your Interest On A Friday Afternoon

Books I Read For The First Time While Researching Timepiece:

  • Waterloo: A Near-Run Thing by David Howarth
  • Sharpe’s Waterloo by Bernard Cornwall
  • The Age of Napoleon by Alistair Horne
  • The Rise of Napoleon Bonaparte by Robert Asprey
  • Daily Life in Victorian England by Sally Mitchell
  • Everyday Life in Regency and Victorian England by Kristine Hughes
  • What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew by Daniel Pool
  • The Steampunk Bible by Jeff VanderMeer
  • Steampunk, an anthology of short stories edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer

Books I Read After Timepiece Was Complete, And Too Bad, Because I Might Otherwise Have Leveraged Them:

  • The Corinthian and The Sprig Muslin by Georgette Heyer

Books I Re-Read While Researching Timepiece:

  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (not that it takes much to prompt me to re-read Austen)
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (ditto)
  • The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (to inspire some specific fantastic-beast-on-the-moor imagery that I don’t think actually made it into the final draft, but it still counts)
