Brainstorming ideas that may become scenarios in a couple of issues.
Twelve reasons why it wouldn't
POD is an amateur press magazine and also a forum for discussing AH and AH-related ideas. A lot of the comments don't make sense unless you've following the dialogue. Here are some of my general-interest ones.
Another Long Hiatus? I've been having too many of those lately. Hopefully I'll get back on a more regular schedule next year. I wrote the bulk of this issue in January and February, and had the print edition ready on time for the late February/early March collation. Unfortunately, most of the print edition was taken up by excerpts from my novels, and for marketing reasons I can't put more than a tiny fraction of those novels on-line.
As a result I decided to wait until I had something more substantial before I put up the on-line edition. Unfortunately, legal wrangling (see It's Been a Quiet Couple of Months for details) and two deaths in the fairly immediate family (my mother-in-law and my sister's mother-in-law) has taken up most of what would have been my writing time. What little writing I've done has been to finish up an extensive rewrite of my novel Bear Country. Finally I just decided to go with what I had in this issue rather than waiting any longer. So this is going to be a rather skimpy issue, probably the skimpiest in five or six years.
The next issue may be a while. The legal
wrangling I'm involved in will
extend until at least mid-December. I would like to get in at
more issue this year, but I wouldn't count on it.
POD members will got the final chapters of the
novel Char and another section of Bear
Country, They'll also get another
Monday-morning general challenge.
In the pipe-line: More Monday-morning general challenges, plus some hopefully fresh perspectives on some of the most discussed events of World War II.

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.
