Interviewing the AH Community: Adam Selby-Martin of the Scifi and Fantasy Reviewer

What you said about cliche Axis/Confederate victory settings not necessarily being bad is similar to my own observation that cheap thrillers succeed and fail mostly on execution.

Oh yeah, I mean our very own @varyar has proven that with In and Out of the Reich; and I'm about to send Gary a review for Yesterday's Dreams, a short story collection by Tom Brook that's set in his Withering of Eagles setting in which Imperial Gernany triumphed in the Great War

It isn't that hard to create something imaginative and engaging in even the most cliched of scenarios like Confederacy Triumphant or Third Reich Triumphant; it's just easier to roll along with the cliches and try and bring in a few readers like that
