Mistoricals is what Jane at DA calls them to me they are worse than wallpaper historicals.

When I think of Wallpaper Historicals I think of Julia Quinn or Sabrina Jefferies which I do enjoy but Mistoricals are people like Tessa Dare and pretty much all the new regency that sourcebooks puts out.

I hear Tessa Dare's newest novels has like 20 or something movies references in it. People seem to think that's brilliant.

I think a list needs to be made for these type stories so I can avoid them. I think they should have there own genre kind of like Steampunk is Victorian and scifi these are a mix of contemporary elements with modern characters in long dresses.

I like this post about it Carolyn Jewel calls them meta-regency. I love the comments and one calls them Regency in Drag!
