Welcome to the second half of Fable Gazers' Season 2: Heyer Today, in which I interview knowledgeable experts and fans about underappreciated Regency romance queen Georgette Heyer
This week, we’ll be talking to the President of the Jane Austen Society of Australia, Susannah Fullerton. She’s also an OAM recipient (Order of Australia) as well as a member of the Royal Society of New South Wales. Added to this, she’s a marvellous author and literary historian who is an expert on both Austen and Heyer. Together we discuss people's perceptions of Heyer (a poor man's Jane Austen? Pah!), the future of Heyer critique and what makes Heyer great.
Our second guest is book blogger Eleanor Turner, who’s website ‘Jane to Georgette’ is really informative about Heyer and her works, as well as the comparison between Heyer and her idol, Austen.
