New Book Review and New Book Reviewer – The Sins of the Father by C. B. Hanley

Sins of the FatherAs you may know Ian Shone writes quite a few of the book reviews for the Alt Hist site, and while he is still going strong (should have another review from him soon), we have also had some other volunteers step forward to write reviews as well. The latest of these is Christopher Yates. His review of The Sins of the Father by C. B. Hanley is now live on the Alt Hist website.

If you like tales of medieval intrigue and crime then it sounds like C. B. Hanley’s book might well be of interest to you. Please go and read Chris’s review to find out more!

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.

By the Blood of Heroes reviewed by Ian Shone for Alt Hist

By The Blood of HeroesIan Shone has kindly volunteered his time to Alt Hist to help out with book reviews and proof-reading, and I’m glad to say that his review of By the Blood of Heroes by Joseph Nassise is is now available on the Alt Hist site under our Book Reviews section. By the Blood of Heroes is a combination of alternate history and zombie-fueled horror, and I think you will find Ian’s review interesting.

Please go along and take a look at the review.

Great Review of Alt Hist Issue 3 at Fantasy Book Review

Fantasy Book Review has recently post a rather good review of Alt Hist Issue 3. Here’s a quick extract from the review:

All five stories in Alt Hist Issue 3 make for great reading and all will awaken an interest in the times and events upon which they are based. I strongly recommend that you check out the Alt Hist website – http://althistfiction.com/ – where you can read exceprts and purchase this, and earlier, editions. Alt Hist is a fine magazine that is getting better an better with each publication.

Submitting Book Reviews to Alt Hist

Just a reminder that Alt Hist also accepts non-fiction related to historical fiction and alternate history. In particular this could include book reviews. I am quite keen that we start publishing some of these so if you fancy reviewing some new releases then please get in touch. I would recommend that you take a look at what is coming out in the next few months and then let me know what you would be interested in reviewing. You should then be able to contact the appropriate publisher and ask them to send you a review copy – just let them know that you plan to be reviewing the book for Alt Hist and I’m sure they will be happy to send you a copy – publishers are very interested in getting new books as much publicity as possible.

Tangent Online posts review of Alt Hist Issue 1

Our third official review is now in. Tangent Online, one of the longest established sites for reviewing short story publications has posted a review of the first issue of Alt Hist. All six stories have received positive comments from the reviewer Robert Leishman.

Again “Easter Parade, 1930″ by Rob McClure Smith, seems to have the best of the plaudits. Robert thought it was ‘definitely worth a read’.
