Drake in Northwestern Mexico

The Spanish think they have Sir Francis Drake trapped.

That proves to be a major mistake.

More Stuff For POD Members Only

What you see here is a truncated on-line version of a larger zine that I contribute to POD, the alternate history APA.  POD members get to look forward to more fun stuff.




Just call it the incredible shrinking zine. Life has become a lot more hectic for me in the last three months. I changed jobs, and now spend two hours a day commuting. In theory that cuts my writing time in half. Actually it makes more of an impact than that, because I come home after sitting for ten hour and sitting at anything for another couple of hours is the last thing I want to do. Oh well. It boils down to me facing the same obstacles to writing that a lot of you have faced all along. Welcome to the real world, Dale. 

This issue POD people will see the end of West Story. That makes four stories in the Exchange universe, totaling between 70,000 and 80,000 words. The next step is to finish integrating them and turn them into a novel. Everybody will see another installment of the Operation Torch saga, and a couple of World War II brainstorming scenarios. You'll also see a rather unique Indian scenario, and my first attempt at a Napoleonic what-if, and POD members will see the usual commentary on last issue of POD.
