Reviews, Essays, & Illuminants at Troynovant;
listing of Contributors by Name, A-Z

Open book, quill pen

To keep this sequence handier, from this main Contributors A-Z index we've separated out the extended Franson family and some other stalwarts. We are very glad of the opportunity to present fine work by these thoughtful writers.

Readers may notice that some contributors' inclusions antedate the founding of — although not the founding of Troy. We would not want you to think that these folks have crassly been volunteered; rather, we sense a more-or-less mutual spiritual affinity, and trust that their shades in Elysium will not object to whatever additional motes of glory we may bestow upon them.

Where the entry is for a review, the creator of the reviewed work — writer, editor, director, lead actor — is named in the right-hand column. For alternate sequences, see Book reviews by Author, or Book reviews by Title, our Recent updates, or others listed in the General Contents; below is by Contributor and Title.

[A street in Padua, Italy.]


Why came I hither but to that intent?
Think you a little din can daunt mine ears?


Hortensio, hark.
This gentleman is happily arrived,
My mind presumes, for his own good and ours.


I promised we would be contributors,
And bear his charge of wooing, whatsoe'er.

William Shakespeare
The Taming of the Shrew, 1.2.193-194 & 207-211

At Troynovant we are more interested in excellent or distinctive work than the merely timely or fashionable. Quality is always in season, and often more topical and entertaining than currency or fashion admit. Thus, we aim to refer and amuse, rather than to announce and forget. We avoid spoiling surprises in reviews that recommend; other works take their chances.
