HAPPY 117TH BIRTHDAY, GEORGETTE HEYER!

Georgette Heyer

On this day in 1902, Georgette Heyer was born the first child of parents George and Sylvia in Wimbledon, London.

Also born on this day is the new book Acting on Impulse — Contemporary Short Stories by Georgette Heyer, an authorized collection featuring some early 1920s works from Heyer, with introductions and literary analysis from official Heyer biography Jennifer Kloester and Reading Heyer‘s Rachel Hyland.

The stories include:

– “A Proposal to Cicely”
– “The Little Lady”
– “The Bulldog and the Beast”
– “Lincke’s Great Case”
– “Acting on Impulse”
– “The Chinese Shawl”
– “Whose Fault Was It?”
– “The Old Maid”

The collection also includes a bonus Georgian tragedy, “Love”, and the search for “On Such a Night”, a story long-missing from the Heyer canon.
