Recent Canadian historical fiction.

Written by Phil Koch

While Canada’s History magazine doesn’t review historical fiction, we know that many of our readers are devotees of the genre, and so from time to time we compile a list of recently published Canadian titles. The books mentioned here include tales of murder and romance, military conflict and Arctic exploration, as well as a pair of stories about Louis Riel and the Métis people. There are so many recent historical fiction titles that we’ll publish another list very soon!
