A Games of Lies by Rebecca Cantrell reviewed by Ian Shone

A Game of LiesWe have just published a review by Ian Shone of Rebecca Cantrell’s A Game of Lies – it’s an espionage thriller set during the 1936 Berlin Olympics – so quite a timely publication! The plot involves the leaking of Nazi secrets to the British and a murder mystery. Ian thought that it was a very readable thriller.

New Review of Alt Hist Issue 4 at Edi’s Book Lighthouse

Edi’s Book Lighthouse has just published a rather good review of Alt Hist Issue 4. Here’s the concluding part of the review:

A well done magazine which delivers exactly what the editor promised:
Well written and entertaining stories set in different period of times and an informative editorial.

If you want to discover alternate history beyond all the well known authors then you should give a Alt Hist try. You will get an entertaining and well written bunch of stories. Even you do not like all stories (who loves all stories and books) like me, you get a lot of impressions and ideas how history could have been.

Interested in book reviewing?

If you read the Alt Hist blog regularly you will have noticed that we are publishing regular book reviews now from Ian Shone. However, so as not to overburden Ian too much, and to be able to review some more books (we’re getting quite a few sent through to us at the moment!) I would like to have a few more book reviewers for the site.

If you would be interested in volunteering to do this then please send me an email at althist.editor@gmail.com with some examples of previous book reviews, or a sample of a new book review that hasn’t been published anywhere. Also let me know what sort of books you would be interested in reviewing and how often.

We can’t offer actual payment, but you will get a free copy of the next issue of Alt Hist and also a credit in the issue.
