Half Way to the First Issue of Alt Hist

I am happy to announce that we now have three accepted stories for the first issue of Alt Hist, which means that we are halfway to our target of six.

But once we get to our target of six stories accepted that doesn’t mean the issue will be ready. There will still be quite a bit of work to do on getting the stories type set, deciding a table of contents, choosing artwork and designing front and back covers, writing an editorial, and also getting proofs out to our contributors.

So in a sense the work is only just beginning!

Alt Hist’s Mission Statement

What does Alt Hist stand for? Here’s our new mission statement.

Alt Hist, http://althistfiction.com, is the new magazine of Historical Fiction and Alternate History. Lovers of historical fiction for too long have been denied outlets for short pieces of fiction, as the number of print and online magazines for historical short fiction is very limited compared to the popularity of fiction set in past times. Alt Hist’s mission is to provide readers with entertaining and well-written short stories with a historical setting, whether portraying actual events or events that could have happened. If you read and enjoy historical fiction, alternate history or historical fantasy then we think you will like Alt Hist.
