Wow looks interesting! This author seems to be seeing things in a totally different way than mine is being planned though.

I think one of my favourite alternate history books is Eifelheim by Michael Flynn - aliens land in a medieval German village - not as wacky as it might sound and very well done.

Unfortunately Michael Flynn doesn't seem to have written anything else historical, but this is a very well researched what-if novel.

Editor of Alt Hist, the new magazine of Historical Fiction and Alternate History.

Writer of Historical Fantasy, visit my site for more details.

Latest novels:
Hell has its Demons (Historical Fantasy)
By the Sword's Edge (Volume 1 of a serialized novel - Medieval Action and Adventure)
