Alt Hist First Issue Table of Contents

I am now at the stage of putting together a table of contents for the first issue of Alt Hist. The following short fiction pieces will be published in the first issue:

  • The Silent Judge by David W. Landrum
  • Easter Parade, 1930 by Rob McClure Smith
  • HolyWater by Andrew Knighton
  • Lament for Lost Atlanta by Arlan Andrews
  • The Bitterness of Apples by Priya Sharma
  • Travelling by Air by Ian Sales

After much thought I decided the fairest way of ordering the contents of the first issue was by date of acceptance. So David W. Landrun’s story was the first accepted, and Ian Sales’s story was the last accepted (i.e. because it was submitted recently, not because it took longer than any other story to evaluate!).

The stories are a good mix of fairly straight historical fiction and very alternate history fiction, with one story actually taking the whole history of creation as its narrative. Other settings covered in the first issue include Anglo-Saxon England, the London of Jack the Ripper, Glasgow street riots in 1930, as well as fiction portraying alternate histories of the USA and air travel.

We will also be publishing pieces about two upcoming alternate history anthologies: Columbia & Britannia and Aether Age.
