    That's true, a snap dissolution would be hard to reconcile with this - but that's also a good precedent. In practice, it might be an informal thing where the general election is rarely contested in Cygnia unless it's at an expected time, but then by-elections happen midterm. Not unlike how the...

    Remember that until 1960 in OTL, Maine held its Congressional elections two months before the rest of the USA (hence 'as Maine goes, so goes the nation', everyone was watching to see what clues the early elections held). This was only abolished by the 83rd amendment to Maine's constitution...

    NB due to questions asked elsewhere - currently we're not getting the internal navigation / contents page displayed properly because Amazon is awful, but I am told this will be fixed in a few days max, and if you buy it now you will get the fixed version automatically when your Kindle updates.

    I am pleased to announce that Look to the West Volume IV: Cometh the Hour... is now available for download from Amazon! As noted above, if you are not able to purchase the book outright, please bear in mind I make a lot of my royalties off Kindle Unlimited, so reading it that way is fine by...

    Thanks. I have been wondering how to change it up for future volumes; I wouldn't entirely base it on your suggestion here, but it's certainly an idea. Hah, good point. Cairo, IL is the one I always think of, largely because of Bill Bryson writing about it. I like both of those. Let's combine...

    Belated Nevada map. I think @Harlow 's method may be interesting for this one given the population disparity of Clark County.

    I don't think so, but @Lord Roem came up with the idea so you'd have to ask him. Well, yes. Don't tell anyone, but Jared hinted that maybe at some point in the future not now he might release DoD on Sea Lion Press, which I have mixed feelings about; I'd love to read it there, but then everyone...

    Thank you, I will get that sorted. edit: sent in the correction, should be fixed within five days according to the message (hopefully sooner as it comes out in four!)

    I've debated whether to make this one another 25-parter and make that the new norm or do a 50-parter, I still haven't made up my mind yet. Clearly it's being in Belgium long term that does it, I mean Leopold I was fine but look at what happened to his son.

    Which exactly do you mean? As it's not my area, I'm probably more prone to falling back on OTL-isms here. This was inspired by a video I saw where people were playing a Pictionary-type game on the Wii U, where you have X seconds to draw as many pictures as possible and get the others to guess...

    Absolutely fine - the Kindle Unlimited setup actually makes up a big percentage of my royalties because it's calculated on number of pages and, spoiler, LTTW has a lot of pages! So that's certainly an option for anyone who isn't able to buy it outright.

    I've avoided that term as an analogy for how Americans in this era of OTL tended to say "United States" on its own a lot as the name of their country, although probably some people have used it. Thanks for that, I was assuming the UK one would convert to the appropriate country for everyone...

    That's an interesting interpretation of the code name - not correct but I like you're trying to figure it out. A clue will come if you look back on previous instances of the London placenames call-up code - without being too precise.

    It should be Anton, if there is an inconsistency I will fix that (and thanks for spotting it). 1) Why on Earth would the OTL Germans name their tank after an Indian tiger? Or an African and Asian leopard? 2) That's not the English word. Grislybär is German (but lacking the diacritic because the...

    I know what you mean, but bear in mind we are only talking about a military technology focus here - there will be future updates looking at the impact of new technologies on civilian life, and that's a bit of a different story.

    That is fixed, it only takes one character wrong. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Materiel It is a pun, I do do them occasionally.
