We are delighted to present the list of authors in our Alternate History book! Featuring classic stories on the theme with new and recent work by modern authors, this is an exciting anthology exploring reimagined histories and ‘What If?’ scenarios. Alongside our regular submission process, we teamed up with both the award-winning online magazine DESIblitz and Danni Blechner of Conscious Dreams Publishing, reaching out for stories and authors beyond our usual channels to ensure a wonderful variety of all the genre has to offer. We’re very pleased with the results, and our congratulations go to the below:
