Historical fiction Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Historical fiction tells a story that is set in the past. That setting is drawn from history, and often contains historical persons, but the main characters tend to be fictional. Writers of stories in this genre work to portray the manners and social conditions of the persons or time(s) presented in the story, with due attention paid to period detail and fidelity. Historical fiction is found in books, magazines, art, television programming, film, theater, video games and other media.
