#RichardIII in fiction – a #GoodReads list

For those of you who enjoy fiction about King Richard III (which I suspect may be most of you who are following this blog!), this may be of interest.

Keen Ricardian Kathy Kingsbury has compiled a list on GoodReads of more than eighty novels and short story collections featuring the King. Many you may already know – others may be new to you (as they are to me). I’m delighted to see both The Order of the White Boar and The King’s Man pretty high up the rankings, and both Grant Me the Carving of My Name and Right Trusty and Well Beloved.. feature.

Why not have a look? You may find a new favourite – or two. And don’t forget to vote for your old favourites too!

Kathy’s list can be found at:
