Gareth Jones over at SF Crowsnest has given Alt Hist Issue 2 a really great review.
Here’s some of the highlights:
“The second issue of ‘AltHist’ magazine builds on the solid basis of the first issue, bringing a collection of historical fiction and alternate histories from a broad cross-section of history. There are some wonderful stories among them.”
“‘Long Nights In Languedoc’ … was a highly enjoyable start to the magazine. ”
“‘The Apollo Mission’ by David X. Wiggin is pretty short but does a good job of imagining the setting and the feelings of the unfortunate volunteer.”
‘Son of Flanders': The horrors of life in the trenches are atmospherically portrayed”
‘In Cappadocia’: “short but intriguing”
“‘The Orchid Hunters’ is a superb story by Priya Sharma”
‘Death In Theatre’: “an interesting study in motivation and human nature.”
‘The Scarab Of Thutmose’: “an amusingly quirky tale of intrigue”
“‘The Watchmaker Of Filigree Street’ by NK Pulley is an intriguing Victorian tale set in London”
