I've read that there's never been a biography of Jane Seymour done before and that this Elizabeth Norton one is the first.  Is that possible after all this time?  I also read her other books have been highly criticized because she is supposed to be an Oxford historian but doesn't write like one or use proper annotation of sources.

Also, A Tudor Tragedy by Lacey Baldwin Smith is being reissued as Catherine Howard: The Queen Whose Adulteries Made a Fool of Henry the Eighth.  As I recall Smith was very sympathetic toward CH so what's up with the harsh re-titling?

Popping in with something all good Ricardians should have on their Amazon wish-list:

This Time by Joan Szechtman

Some geek in an Oregon Richard III Society uses time travel to yank Richard out of Bosworth seconds before his demise & plonk him into 2004....where you just know hijinks will ensue LOL  This sounds really good & the 1st few pgs of it are available as a preview.  It's getting good reviews as well.  Dunno how I missed this un!
