World War 2 Scenario 

What If Hitler Hadn't Declared War on the US? 
(part 3)

Hitler's decision starts to pay dividends.

Book Review 

Rising Sun Victorious

This is an excellent collection of Pacific War what-if’s, somewhat marred by attempts to meet the cover blurb promise of Japanese victories at the cost of plausibility.


 A “Flintstones” Time-line?

How do you get cavemen and dinosaurs in the same time-line?  (And can we work in Raquel?)


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.





What Is This? 

As you’ve undoubtedly noticed, this is a much down-sized, and very late version of my zine.  The on-line magazine is usually a scaled-down version of the magazine I put in POD, the alternate history Amateur Press Association magazine.  To be honest, my contribution to July POD wasn't worth putting on-line. It was thrown together starting about two days before the deadline, and it showed.   Life has been pushing in on my writing time for the last several issues, and this time it managed to completely shut me down for nearly two months. 

I decided to wait until I had something worth putting on-line.  Unfortunately, that took a lot longer than I expected it to.  This is a labor of love though, and I don't have to sacrifice quality to meet a dead-line.   I do try to impose a deadline on myself in order to maintain my self-discipline, but if getting an issue up on time means putting up junk, I try to avoid that..   

In any case, this is not a bad issue now.  It continues the time-line where Hitler doesn't declare war on the US after Pearl Harbor.  It reviews a very good book of Pacific War what-ifs.  It also explores a couple of rather off-the-wall what-ifs.  Sometimes I like to just take an idea and have fun with it.  The "Artemus Quiggley" and "Flintstones" time-lines are just me having fun.
