      Hi Malcolm,

      I'm an eclectic reader. I would once have said that my favourite period was 15th to 18th century England and Scotland, but I've lengthened the time period and broadened its geographic reach. I have a particular fondness for the 17th century at the moment: the birth of the Royal Society, and the amazing scientists (as we now call them) of this period. I like reading about the Stuart kings (of Scotland and then of the United Kingdom, and novels set in Russia, China and Japan. There's been some good post European settlement historical fiction set in Australia and New Zealand as well, which I enjoy.

      In short, I'll read almost anything :-)
