Hi. I'm amassing some research tools for a novel I'll be writing next year, set in Byzantium's 11th century. So excited about it as I'll be collaborating with a friend and fellow author.

Is there anyone familiar with this period, who can point me to some recent books / any websites or forum where I can get more information? I only have three books so far; Michael Psellus' Fourteen Byzantine Rulers, Colin Wells' Sailing from Byzantium, and an Osprey Men-at-Arms on the Varangian guard, which will feature prominently.

My focus is on understanding the Byzantine way of life, but I would appreciate any recommendations for research on the empire. Thanks.
