From the Inside Flap:

Georgette Heyer (1902-1974) wrote 56 best-selling novels over the course of a career that spanned over 50 years, yet she remains one of the most overlooked authors of the 20th century. Mary Fahnestock-Thomas seeks to rectify the error with this unique compilation. At once a scholarly work and a labor of love, this remarkable collection includes:

* 3 short stories and 3 essays written by Georgette Heyer which have never been published in the U.S.

* Over 200 book reviews dating from 1921 to 1989

* 35 articles and excerpts addressing various aspects of Heyer's work

* 12 movie and theater reviews of productions based on Heyer's novels

* And much more!

About the Author:

Mary Fahnestock-Thomas holds degrees in German and Comparative Literature. She lives in Ohio with her husband, two children, and lots of books.
