    Alternate History General Discussion

    All the history books I had when going through the Virginia public school system had personal accounts to make history feel more real. Here's a good twitter thread on the subject specifically in regards to the Holocaust: As Liam said in a good comment on Simon Schama: What a good personal...

    Alternate History General Discussion

    What @SenatorChickpea and @Kimkatya have said - both insightful comments - got me thinking, and I have some scattered thoughts. If I could make newbies to AH read anything, I'd give them this piece by rvbomally on the Alternate History Weekly Update. It's a piercing piece about how so many AH...

    Least favorite alt-history story?

    If it were just bad writing I'd cut him some slack. It's the racism that obliterated any sympathy I may have had for him.

    Least favorite alt-history story?

    https://neverwasmag.com/2022/07/the-republic-of-virginia/ Here's a rather abysmal work of AH I got as a review copy. The author is going to be mad at me but frankly he deserves it.

    Self-insert ISOT novels as propaganda: the case of Russia's "Popadantsy" stories

    Self-insert ISOT novels as propaganda: the case of Russia's "Popadantsy" stories

    I watched the 1970s Red Western White Sun of the Desert a few months back and what really struck me is that it had something very much like the old American racist canard of 'uplifting the savages,' but couched in explicitly Marxist language i.e. 'advancing the primitives to the next stage of...

    Switzerland is the country equivalent of Elizabeth II or Jimmy Carter or Henry Kissinger - you never really expect them to pass on. Switzerland will still be there when the sun goes supernova.
