Miss Snark steps up to the plate armour

Miss Snark has been asked a market question to do with historical novels. As usual, she gave a thoroughly sensible reply. However, I am amazed at the question, which seemed to infer that there weren't any new authors in historical adventure. There are of plenty of 'new' names (as opposed to a grandfather clause that the enquirer refers to). People like Simon Scarrow, Conn Iggulden and Julian Stockwin who have appeared in the last few years, for example.

Above all, Miss Snark says: 'You have to write the thing that fills you with passion.' I agree with that, as well.
