'Mem' Review

I also should note that the marketing blurb treats it as a historical/sci-fi novel (which it is, if the review is any indication) and only mentions the AH aspect in passing.

I kind of think the most common form of AH is steampunk esque stuff where it's set in the past but with sci-fi esque technology. The stuff we write here is the outlier, rather than Mem.
One of the reasons why I've reviewed so little online alternate history on my blog is because a lot of it doesn't have that many real "connections" to other types of fiction. The few I have done have at least a small link to technothrillers/WW3s of some kind, giving me a frame of reference for comparison.

(For "AH as a setting" literary AH, be it Mem or a Robert Conroy potboiler, this isn't an issue at all)
