And for all of you Regency fans out there, here is the latest in Ian Mortimer’s guides to time traveling through history. The Time Traveler’s Guide to Regency Britain is a handbook for folks who find themselves swept up in a temporal rift and deposited somewhere between 1789 and 1830. We’ll note here that if you end up in 1785 or 1836, you are out of luck. Keep it tight when you time travel, dear readers. Stick to the prescribed eras. Don’t be wandering off on your own, thinking you’re going to find some interesting corner of history that hasn’t been properly illuminated. You’re going to end up in a ditch, covered in who knows what sort of goo, while wearing the wrong sort of trousers. Don’t be that person. Stick to the plan. Get your Mortimer.
Really. We don’t think this needs explaining, but there’s always someone who steps on a butterfly in the Late Cretaceous and poof! Here we are.
Anyway, tread carefully out there, dear readers. Plan for warm weather, because apparently that’s what we’re going to have these next few weeks. Keep working on those warrens and reading nooks. We’ll endeavor to keep the shelves stocked and the A/C running. You know where to find us. Well, the streets have probably moved, but we’re a fixed point in the universe.

Dropping in to purchase this book from A Good Book (or any indie we know) will certainly not result in you being covered in some sort of goo but you might leave in a sheen of indie love and laden with books.
