    Alternate History General Discussion

    Italy is a great power because you can get pizza on every continent except Antarctica. If that's not indicative of great power status, I don't know what is. Technically, The Death of Stalin (both the film and the original comic) is already AH by virtue of having apocryphal events occur and OTL...

    On 'Redchapel' and the Memory of Jack the Ripper

    Do you have a link to this? Not doubting the veracity of it, but I'm a fan of Ripperology in general, so new evidence is always nice!

    I really appreciated this, it was something I needed to hear and it helped me get back into the swing of things, so to speak. Thanks a ton.

    Alternate History General Discussion

    Don't you just love it when you put in a lot of effort to write a character in a forum game as a nuanced depiction of how the Progressive politics of early 20th century America in a world where eugenicist practices carried on well into the 1960s would evolve over time into a form of...

    Alternate History General Discussion

    First off, how the fuck am I just learning about this now. Secondly, Kim Newman's Anno Dracula (at least in the first book, which is more of a detective story than later books) has a nice subversion of the idea that the heroes/main characters have to be hyper-competent, with the main leads only...

    Weimar Germany- D,E,F

    I've seen all three seasons and it is absolutely brilliant. It captures everything so well, and while there are a few anachronistic gaffes here and there, the showrunners really put in the effort for it to be as period-accurate as possible. It's a gorgeous show with genuinely gut-wrenching...

    Alternate History General Discussion

    I had an idea the other day for a TLIAPOT that goes chronologically backward until it ends with the circumstances surrounding the initial POD, but I dunno how appealing that would be to read.

    Least favorite alt-history story?

    This isn't related to the current discussion, but if I'm being honest, I've kinda grown tired of excessive criticism or lambasting of alternate history works by the online community. It's somewhat ironic of me to say, considering I'm the first one to call out stuff that's exceedingly stupid and...

    Technically, it's a butterfly as part of a larger timeline that diverges in 1907, but I hope it'll live up to expectations!

    On the Choice of Points of View

    I really enjoyed this article and think its subject is super important when it comes to writing narrative alternate history that most people don't often consider. When it comes to my own writing, I have a tendency to gravitate towards using POVs showing the perspective of the marginalized and...
