Publication Date of the Second Issue of Alt Hist

When will the second issue of Alt Hist be published?

Well for the next issue I’m aiming for between 7 and 8 stories altogether and so far I have accepted 4. I do have some to review that looked quite good, so I’m fairly confident that I should have enough stories accepted by the end of this month. There will then be a round of proofs and typsetting to do in February/March, which means that with a fair wind you can expect the second issue of Alt Hist to be coming in March or April.

I’ll keep you posted!

Alt Hist Preparing Print and Ebook versions of first issue

With all the proofs processed, additional non-fiction content added and a cover design created, I am getting close to being able to announce the publication of the first issue of Alt Hist. At this stage a number of complications arise regarding timing. Ideally I’d like to announce publication of the print and ebook versions at the same time, but because certain retailers take a bit of time to get ebooks onto their platforms there maybe some delay. I anticipate though that Alt Hist will be available in some sort of ebook format within a week. When this happens I will announce it on this site, but we may well go for a more full scale announcement once all the distribution channels have got the “book”.
