HPDH: sort too soon

Now is the winter of our discontent -

Made glorious summer by this son of York.

God, I love Richard III. I just started re-reading The Sunne in Splendor by Sharon Kay Penman, and I'm reminding myself how much I love it. It's very close to reality for historical fiction, and I believe it's only called "historical fiction" because Penman goes to the trouble of creating dialogue. The research for this book was rigorous, and it shows.

And also gives me an insight to how biased Shakespeare was, writing for the house of Tudor after all. I love that play, but the real War of the Roses wasn't like that.

Anyway, a quick note from fandom Book. ;)
