I have a new list--all my "historical fantasy" reviews in one handy place.
It was trickier than I thought. As I went through all 1,700 blog posts I've ever written, looking for "historical fantasy," I tried to pull out the books that were "historical fiction set in our world with magical elements." Other things--alternate histories, fantasies that seem like they are set in the past of our world, but not definitively--crept on. I did firmly exclude a number of "medievalish" fantasies that don't specifically take place in real history, which was painful, but necessary. (For instance, although Megan Whalen Turner's Queen's Thief series reads like historical fantasy, it isn't because it's not our history).
Additionally, I ran into problems of geography and time periods. My education has a distinct European bias, and so there are several European categories, labeled nicely, there's one category for "historic Japan;" likewise, the one Mongolian book and several set in India are together under "historical India." This makes me feel as though I have fallen into an Orientalist trap. Perhaps as more historical fantasies set in these places come my way, I'll be able to give these places and histories a distinctness comparable to the European side of things.
Additionally, there are books that don't say, in a helpful spirit, "It was 1883, and little Lucy...." but are clearly "historic." Also, some of us seem to have been sloppy at times making it clear when the book we were reviewing was set. So I have had to use the 19th century as a reasonable default for some of these books.
Please let me know if you see problems or mistakes, and please feel free to send me recommendations for more historical fantasy!
Just to clarify--this list doesn't include the time travel books, which have their own page.
