    AMERICA DIVIDES: The Multi-Party US Election of 2016

    PROLOGUE The White House, Washington DC January 22nd 2009 A part of Barack Obama still felt like a kid posing for a photo on a movie set. Here he was, sat behind the Resolute desk in the Oval Office, the whiff of fresh paint still fading, the presidential house a state of organised chaos from...

    Andrew Jackson wins in 1824

    This is one I've pondered for a bit, though I don't have the expertise to do it justice myself. What if Andrew Jackson had emerged triumphant in the US presidential election of 1824? For the uninitiated, this election was essentially the end of the 'Era of Good Feelings' in which the US had...

    The Sixteen States of America

    As periodically happens about 14 months, possibly driven by the fact that US states count their votes so damn slowly I can't finish all the Super Tuesday primary maps yet, I woke up this morning with an idea of how to fiddle with old US elections in an ASB way to produce some interesting...

    Against the Devil's Men

    This one came out a while ago, but I've just read it and very much enjoyed it. I'm a bit jealous of @Alexander Rooksmoor because my first, vague idea for an AH story was slightly similar to this, but I never had a fraction of the historical expertise needed to write it. As I've just said in a...

    Thande's Retro Look at Sea Lion Press Titles

    Hi everyone. I've started posting updates on a thread over on AH.com looking at old as well as new Sea Lion Press releases - as there may be newer members who didn't see their publication the first time around, or the original story threads that birthed some of them. I may as well crosspost...

    WI: Korabl-Sputnik 1 kills someone in Wisconsin, 1962?

    Whilst reading about the Soviet Vostok Programme (which would put Yuri Gagarin into space in 1961) I read about the unmanned test flight Korabl-Sputnik 1 (aka Sputnik 4 in the West). Launched in 1960, due to a problem with its guidance system, after a successful launch the spacecraft entered to...

    The Surly Bonds of Earth (& possible sequel) discussion

    With the publication of The Surly Bonds of Earth, I thought I would start a discussion thread for both this work and the sequel I intend to begin later this year (tentative title: Well Met By Starlight). This probably also takes in unpublished works I've previously written elsewhere which are...

    The Foreign Office Despatch (Clifford Ashdown, 1902)

    I encountered this as part of Clifford Ashdown's The Adventures of Romney Pringle - Clifford Ashdown is the collective pen name of R. Austin Freeman (of later Dr Thorndyke fame) and John Pitcairn, who was Medical Officer at Holloway Prison at the time. For context, Romney Pringle is an Edwardian...

    Canada-United States Election Conversions

    I thought I would create a separate thread for this, an idea that came to me yesterday. People have tried to do wikiboxes before that are Canada as the US or vice versa, of course, but I thought it might be interesting to create a consistent methodology into which one can plug numbers that will...

    Look to the West Volume III: Equal and Opposite Reactions

    I am pleased to announce that at long last, the third volume of Look to the West, now titled Equal and Opposite Reactions (to avoid confusion with another book which already used my original title), is now on sale at Amazon! Featuring another excellent cover by @Lord Roem ! Includes some more...

    AndyC's Shadowlands series

    As I've just started re-reading @AndyC 's (non-SLP published) Shadowlands fantasy series, I thought a discussion thread was a good idea. For the uninitiated, there are currently two books so far, The Cave Between Worlds and The Secret of the Citadel (those are Amazon links). Please remember to...

    Because everyone else had one. Some of these will be drafts of WIPs that will be uploaded to the AJR Election Maps deviantart when completed. Will be mostly election maps, with some other map types and general graphics interspersed.

    The Twilight's Last Gleaming - Q&A thread

    This is a thread for discussion of my book The Twilight's Last Gleaming, as @Agent Boot asked me to create one. As his work The Loud Blast That Tears The Skies was one of my inspirations for writing it, I could hardly say no! I am assuming that most people who click on this thread will already...

    "For Want of a Nail" consequence streams (and webs)

    For want of a nail the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the message was lost. For want of a message the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail. We're...
