On 23rd May, I attended the Playful Paradox conference at the University of Bedfordshire and presented a paper discussing my research into the journals kept during the Lewis and Clark expedition. There are many gaps in these diaries, some of which I suspect are deliberate, and I find myself becoming increasingly skeptical about historical 'facts'. Here is a link to my paper, The Paradox of Historical Fiction: Finding Truth in the Absence of Fact. All of this year's conference papers can be found here.
