Prehistoric Fiction Authors: Great Books For You

In honor of my upcoming prehistoric fiction release, I wanted to share other authors who write in this genre. There aren’t many of us, so I want to spotlight those who made this my genre.

Jean Auel

Author of the ever-popular Earth’s Children (including Clan of the Cave Bear). This is arguably the most popular prehistoric fiction ever written and what every prehistoric fiction author aspires to.

Sandra Saidak

Author of the trilogy, Kalie’s Journey. Set in Neolithic Europe, it is the story of Kalie’s efforts to save her people.

Harper Swan

Author of the three-volume Replacement Chronicles. Swan leaps between present and paleolithic times to show how Neanderthals were replaced by more advanced humans.

Michael and Kathleen O’Neill-Gear

The prolific authors of dozens of books chronicling life in earliest North America.

William Sarabande

Author of the internationally bestselling First Americans series and First Americans Saga, her array of novels explore the lives of the earliest Americans.

Sue Harrison

International bestselling author of the Ivory Carver trilogy, a sweeping Native American trilogy set at the dawn of human civilization in Alaska.

A few more prehistoric fiction authors who I have read and enjoyed:

Come visit my blog hop starting June 7th as I launch the first of my Man vs. Nature collection, exploring how man survived in the treacherous times of the ancient world:

Born in a Treacherous Time

  10. Jean M. Auel was life-changing for me, too—brilliantly researched! Not a big fan of her style of writing, but the underlying knowledge that went into that series is amazing. I haven’t read any of the others; I’ll have to check them out. Thanks for pointing me in their direction! And thanks as well for the lovely comment on Damyanti’s blog for my WATWB guest post last month; much appreciated 🙂

  11. Jacqui,

    Thanks for stopping by for some giggles on Friday. I’m running a bit behind with the weekend and then DH’s follow-up appointment yesterday but all is well. What a lovely idea to boost others in the same genre as your new release! I hope for you the best of success with the launch of your book, too!! Have a great week and if you want to boogie, come hit the Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me dance floor with me!

      • Jacqui,

        How cool, you owned a dance studio! I would love to take formal dance lessons. We love watching DWTS. I’d love to be able to move like some of those super sexy dancers but alas to move like that lives only in my mind. You’re welcome to dance with me anytime and just know, I won’t judge you. Heck, none of my co-hosts would dream of it because it’s all about the mewsic and the fun. Thanks for stepping out on the dance floor with me! Have a tunetastic week, my friend!!

  12. I haven’t read any of those books you have mentioned Jacqui but I would like to look at them. It is interesting to know how people of those times survived. At present I am reading a poignant account of ‘Born Survivors’ by Wendy Holden, a very heavy reading but difficult to give up.

  13. You forgot Gronk. His work on the Mastodon and the kill is legendary. Graphic but in the end satisfying. He was going to forge his next work on the Saber Tooth Tiger, but, unfortunately, the tiger won.

  14. Hi Jacqui … I’ll wait for yours … I couldn’t get into Jean Auel for some reason … probably bad timing and I found it rather involved and just ‘couldn’t hang around’ trying to work it out! But yours I’ll be reading … cheers Hilary

  15. Hi Jacqui. I haven’t read any of the books you’ve recommended and am not likely to, although I definitely plan to read yours when it is published 🙂
    I admire that you are so well read in the genre in which you’ve chosen to write. It’s smart of you to steep yourself in the prehistoric world your characters will be inhabiting.

  16. Jean Auel is the only author in the list I have read, but I totally adore her books. Each time a new book came out I had to reread all the previous ones first (a lot of reading!). I bought the last book when it came out but have still to read it because of aforementioned need to read all books first and not having time – because I know nothing will be done once I open the page. But after this many years I may just have to bite the bullet!
