The posts about jean Auel got me thinking about many books I could think of where, although fiction, the historical facts teach you a lot while also giving a damn good read. Some stand out....

Edward Rutherford who wrote Sarum, The Forest, London, Dublin, etc    fantastic reads full of history.

[W]hat the internet and its cult of anonymity do is to provide a blanket sort of immunity for anybody who wants to say anything about anybody else, and it would be difficult in this sense to think of a more morally deformed exploitation of the concept of free speech.
