For those of you who don’t know it, Wonders & Marvels is one of the best history sites on the web. Holly Tucker, the author of Blood Work, has put together a lively community “for curious minds who love history, its odd stories and good reads”. In addition to book reviews and guest posts by historians with interesting stories to tell, she’s now added a group of regular contributors. I’m thrilled to be included.
In addition to writing about whatever has caught my fancy here on History in the Margins, I’ll be writing one article a month for Wonders and Marvels, usually about Middle Eastern and Islamic history. My first piece is up. I hope you’ll click the link and check it out. Poke around while you’re there. It’s a great place for the historically minded to hang out.
