  1. Please answer me this? How do I get a book added to the reader list of HFE books? I keep trying and failing!

    The book is ‘The Alien Stone’ by Barry Uglow, and has been compared by Amazing Stories to the works of Jules Verne, and would be a great read for many people here.

    • This site only features books by members of HFAC. Membership is by invitation only–and as volunteer organization our list of authors to consider is quite extensive. I would recommend contacting one of the various historical fiction book bloggers instead.
