  2. AH Challenge: President The King

    We all know about the mark Elvis left on this timeline (and we all know he died on the toilet). After seeing the picture of Elvis and Nixon again, I started wondering what would have happened if he had gotten "involved" early in life and had embarked on a political career. Other than his songs...
  3. British Win In NO

    My friend and I laugh all the time about how funny it would have been for the British to win the Battle of New Orleans only to learn that it was all for nothing. But would it have been all for nothing if the British HAD beaten Andrew Jackson at New Orleans? If the British has occupied the...
  4. Red Army

    I just picked up the book Red Army by Ralph Peters at a used bookstore. I haven't started it yet, but it basically deals with a conventional world war III (focusing solely on Soviet characters). Has anyone else given this a read yet?
  5. Election Day '06 Is Here (RE: West Wing Season 7)

    Finally, we get to chose between Matt Santos and Arnold Vinick. I already voted (went on my way to work), and there was a line. At 7:00AM, there was a line! Stretching almost all the way out of the school cafateria that I vote in. Turnout is going to be huge. Who's going to win? Will the...
  6. Roma Eterna

    I'm thinking of buying the book Roma Eterna. I wanted to find out first if anyone here has read it, and what they think of it. Is it worth the money?
  7. DOUBLE BLIND: WI President Sinatra Stuck With Music

    (Months and months ago, I posted an Alternate History Headline in the writer's forum about President Sinatra. I' thought it would be interesting to bring the idea here) Every student of 20th Century America knows the story of President Sinatra. He was a popular singer in the early 1940's...
  8. A Real Latin America

    What would have happened to the Americas if the Romans had crossed the Atlantic and come here?
  9. Custer's Luck

    I found this book on the bargain table at the book store, and decided to give it a chance. It has Custer surviving Little Bighorn and becoming president in 1880. His presidency parallels Kennedy's Camelot in many ways. The book is fraught with grammatical errors, but is still a pretty good read...
  10. President Huffington

    For those of you who don't know the story of Michael Huffington, here's the short version: The son of a wealthy oilman was bored, and went to a Republican Congressional Candidate workshop being put on by the California Republican Party. After, he decided to run for Congress. He spent a record $5...
  11. Tom Clancy's series

    I was wondering if anyone here had ever worked on a timeline for Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan/John Clark books. don't come to the board as often as a lot of you seem to, so I may have missed a past thread like this. The books set up an interesting potential timeline(IE: nuclear explosion in Denver...
  12. 1901

    I'm almost finished reading 1901 by Robert Conroy. For those of you who don't know, the book involves the German invasion of Long Island in 1901 in an effort by the Kaiser to force the US to give Puerto Rico and a few other small islands won in the Spanish-American war to Germany. I was thinking...
  13. Who would you cast in a Turtledove movie

    The only reason I bring this up is because my girlfriend and I just read Victorious Opposition, and she said that Billy Bob Thorton(without his new rats-tail beard) would make a perfect Jake Featherston. What do you guys think?
  14. Return Engagement: Settling Accounts Trilogy

    Ok, I may be late to the party on this one, but I just saw the cover art for the new Harry Turtledove book dealing with the USA/CSA storyline. I know he can be a crappy alternate historian (ie: staying too closely tied to the timeline of real life), but I did enjoy his Great War /American Empire...
