February 2021 publications
The days are starting to get longer, there's some light at the end of the tunnel with new vaccines, and we published three more beautiful open access books in February! Georgette Heyer: An Un-Conference (held on 25th February, and featuring a whole host of superstar Heyer fans including the excellent Stephen Fry!) is likely to remain a highlight for some time.
Here's what we published in February:
