Hi Anna

Re your question about Sylvester and The Foundling.

Of the two I much prefered Sylvester, I wouldn't put it in my top five GH books (it would probably make the top ten though!) The characters are fun though not always completely likeable, and the story is good.

As for The Foundling, I didn't enjoy it. I did manage to read it through to the end, but I was glad when I finished it and but haven't had the urge to read it again (like i do with so many other GH books)

I hope this is of some help, even though I haven't detailed any of the plots...thought you'd probably enjoy the books more without any spoilers!

Hi Ladies!

What do you think of 2 of GH's books below? Shall I order them? I read some of reviews about these books which made me confused. So I am checking the credible sources here :)

1. Sylvester
2. The Foundling

Thanks!

Hello, I hope someone can help me with a question about First Editions. I have what I think are several GH first editions (thanks to grandmother and mother). They all have a note such as "first published 1954" with the only other date being the copywright to GH (same year). Does this connote a first edition or does it have to have a note saying "first edition"? I have other books that do have a "first edition" notation but they are much more modern. Does anyone know how to tell if you have a first edition Georgette Heyer? THANKS!

I was on the listserv many, many years ago (probably about 12 years ago) and noticed you have used some of my dust covers on your book pages. That is fantastic! Glad to find you again...Lisa.

Dear all,

Thankyou so much for your support in my idea. I really hope I'll be able to write a brilliant screenplay, get a fantastic director to direct it and have a wonderful cast, and eventally make an amazing movie. It is now one of my dreams. :) I hope I can achieve it.

Thankyou all for the positive reaction. It's encouraged me a great deal. :)

A few days ago, I bought a lot of 13 GH books off ebay, and I'll be receiving them soon. I can't wait to get them, and proudly display them on my shelf, with my other books.

I also just finished The Black Moth, and I can see how much she evolved and developed her writing, and even her characters. I liked it, but not perhaps, as much as her faster paced, more humorous books. Although I did go out and buy it the next day...

I've also read The Reluctant Widow and Black Sheep. The Reluctant Widow was amazing, and Black Sheep was good, but not one of my favourites.

:)

I'll speak to you all soon,

Louisa

Louisa, that is a wonderful idea! (A similar fancy has struck me, but I don't have the time - I'm in my last year of high school, so I'll actually have to do some work this year :( ) (Incidentally, I'm an aspiring author myself.) If you do write it, I'd love to read it!!! Devil's Cub is perhaps my ultimate favourite, I think it would be a wonderful one to turn into a screenplay!

I've just finished Venetia - it's another for my favourites list! Jasper is wonderful, I love Aubrey, Edward is absolutely vile and Oswald is hilarious! I wish I could wipe my memory and then read it again for the first time.

I recently finished An Infamous Army, and I was definitely struck with a sense of loss - I miss the Alastairs, particularly Dominic. :(

I agree, Anna, quite often the books by her I was expecting to least enjoy are the ones I love most... I'm so, so glad now that I picked Devil's Cub off the shelf. It started my whole craze.

Sorry, Kayte, can't help you there I'm afraid. :(

Hi, I wondered if anyone knows the address where Georgette Heyer lived in Earl's Court for a time; I have just read that she lived here in her biography, and as it is very near where I live now, I'd be keen to visit!
Thanks! Kayte

Hi Louisa!

Go for it! I would love to see one of GH books made a movie! I just can't imagine who will play Vidal from Devil's Cub!!!!!!!! I don't think we have many actors who can do the job! May be in the 50's there were, but now I don't think so!

Happy New Year!

Anna

you are a lovely lovely girl. Reading the messages you posted, I thought you were older than 14, so I suppose you can write creditably well. So go on with your project !
happy new year to all of you

Hi Louisa!

I think that's a great idea! I've been longing for someone to make GH movies. Most movies nowadays are so trashy, and a GH movie would be a breath of fresh air, not to mention a veritable laugh-a-thon ( if done right). I'd especially love to see that scene in Devil's Cub, where Mary shoots Vidal!

Oh! I know I just made a really long entry, but I just remembered something.

Ever since I was little, and devoured all books that I could read, I've wanted to be a writer.

But then, a few weeks ago, as I was reading a GH novel, I saw it in my head, like a movie. Then, I realised I could try my hand at being a screenplay writer, and try and write a screenplay for one of GH's novels. I know that it might cost me some money to get copyright and all, but when I am a bit older (I'm only 14), I really would like to try.

I think Regency Buck, Arabella, The Convenient Marriage, These Old Shades, Devil's Cub, The Grand Sophy, Cotillion and others would make great movies.

Does anyone think I could actually attempt it??

Thanks, and sorry for double-posting!

xx Louisa

Happy New Year all! Hope 2009 is starting well for you.

Anyway, I recently went out to the bookstore and bought 5 GH books, as I hadn't found any that I wanted on ebay. They were incredibly expensive, but well worth the money. I bought the 3 books of the Alastair Trilogy - These Old Shades, Devil's Cub and An Infamous Army -, Arabella and The Convenient Marriage. There were many others to choose from, but I bought TOS, DC and TCM because they are some of my favourites, and I bought AIA and Arabella because they looked and sounded fantastic. It was a hard choice, though.

I've now read Arabella, and found it absolutely amazing. The characters were all great, and you managed to laugh at and sympathize with Arabella at the same time. Mr Beaumaris was heavenly to read about, as well. ;)

Also, this might sound a little weird, but I have decided I will not read the last chapter of AIA until I have read all of GH's books. This is because I am not willing to let my favourite characters (all the Alastairs, Lord and Lady Worth, the Taverners, Charles Audley, Lady Bab) go until I have found suitable people to replace them. It probably is very stupid but it is too sad for me to finish the Alastair trilogy. :( That is how attached I am to them.

So, moving on. Since I have last visited this great site (thanks Sally!), I have read a coupla more GH books. I read Simon the Coldheart, Beauvallet, The Toll Gate and Powder and Patch. I loved Powder and Patch; thought it was short but sweet. The Toll Gate was good, although I thought the romance was more exciting than the adventure. Simon the Coldheart and Beauvallet were both extraordinary. I loved both, and the parallels between the two were really well done. Hopefully I'll get to read more soon.

Also, Jane, I believe that she does give many of her male characters grey eyes. It's interesting to see how you find some things in various books that she seemed to have like, as she used them a few times.

It was funny, but the other day, I was at home and was reading These Old Shades, when my aunt cam a-visiting. I put down the book, greeted her, all that, and alked to her for a while. It was a few minutes later that she saw the book on the table, and exclaimed that she had read GH when she was a young girl. I find that amazing, how someone over 40 years older than me can have the same interests. It, in a way, brought us together, and we now have more to talk about.

Happy reading!

Louisa xx

Dear SALLY HOUGHTON, I've got a 1978 edition of These Old Shades with a beautiful cover by Arthur Barbosa, I'd like to send the pic of the cover to your site. Which e-address could I use?
Thank you for answering and thank you for this GH site!!

Hi Angie!

Thank you so much for responding! I will go ahead and buy the book! Actually surprisingly I love Charity Girl which so many people didn't like when I read comments on Amazon.com. What is amazing with GH is even her books which we think might not be perfect are much better and than any other book in the market.

Again Happy New Year everyone!

Anna
