Fred Mench's Database of Roman Fiction. This is a wonderful compilation of fiction set in Rome. My favorite author among those listed is Lindsey Davis for her splendid writing, her humor, and her seemingly realistic depiction of Rome.
The Official Website of Lindsey Davis. This site belongs to author Lindsey Davis who write humorous fiction (mysteries) set in Rome. I admit to being partial; I'm her webmistress.
Roman Mysteries Website by Caroline Lawrence. These books are for a younger audience and have been turned into a British tv series, surely soon to be headed our way.
Steven Saylor Website This site belongs to author Steven Saylor, brother of DSHS math teacher Ron Saylor. The majority of his books are set in the Roman Republic. His most recent, Roma, is an amazing journey from before the founding of Rome through Augustus rise to emperor.
