So how is the Keen book? Worth the price of admission? I can't even find a description of it, thus far.

It's a pretty broad study--Keen covers historical fiction, as one might expect, but also Gothic and detective fiction. She's using the term "romance" in the sense of "quest," with the goal not the Holy Grail but, instead, the possibility of historical truth. What I've skimmed so far looks good.
