    Britannia's Fist - Third Book

    Okay, so Amazon tells me it will be in my hands on 2/5 while they still say the release date is 2/17. Didn't realize Amazon had time travel working yet...

    Either way, after a very long wait, it will be available soon.

    had a flyer in one of my book club mailings for an AH novel coming out next month... "Clash of Eagles" by Alan Smale. The POD apparently is that Rome never fell, and has conquered all the way through Scandinavia. The New World has been discovered, and a Roman legion (carried on Norse longboats, no less) is sent there to add it to the Empire. But apparently, there is a POD in N. America too, because they run into... something, and the Romans have a real fight on their hands. This looks interesting... :)

    What do you wanna bet it's some super Aztec Empire or something like that?

    It almost certainly is, but oh well. That'd at least be an interesting read.

    it would be more interesting if it was a Native American empire in a new world that had a lot more domestic plants and animals... but yeah, a super Aztec empire is more likely...

    Apparently Turtledove is releasing Joe Steele on the 7th.

    Two POD's I caught from the Amazon teaser:

    FDR dies right before the 1932 convention, Steele takes the nomination and the presidency. Teaser teaser something about work camps for dissidents...

    Trotsky is in power instead of Stalin...

    "If Only We Had Died In Egypt!" looks interesting. It's a collection of essays about WIs in Jewish history. Typically these essay collections are kind of trash, but this one is unique enough that it might be interesting. The PoDs range from ancient Jewish history all the way up to the modern state of Israel.

    Platine - Kindle

    Waiting to finish and publis my big AH book "Au bord de l'Abîme", I've published a short kindle book called Platine. It's based on my short Platinean War timeline, published on ah.com years ago.
    It's only in french, but the price is very cheap.

    America Slides

    New book series starting, details the crisis after FDR dies way early.

    "President Roosevelt is dead.
    As the nation mourns, the forces of darkness see their chance to bring the United States into the fascist fold.

    Plots are devised and conspiracies hatched.
    Led by Huey Long, Father Coughlin and J. Edgar Hoover, the United States begins to fall into tyranny.
    All that now stands between America and a fascist dictator is the U.S. military under General Douglas MacArthur...a man who would be king."

    Just realised I don't think it was ever posted here that a group of members on this site (including myself) have started publishing (often expanded versions of) our AH.com works through a Kindle publishing outfit Meadow and Lord Roem have set up: Sea Lion Press.

    There are now 20 books available for purchase, including EdT's Fight and Be Right, CalBear's Anglo-American Nazi War (under the title Festung Europa) and a collection of 10 vignettes written by all of us. IF you haven't already, check it out!

    'FAB'

    In terms of modern/pop culture history, there's an book out on 8th December 2015 - 'FAB'. It 'imagines' that John Lennon wasn't shot in 1980 and follows him through that unforgettable decade - the 1980s

    Caesar MacArthur was actually one of my ideas for a TL. I hope this doesn't fall into "lol Huey Long fascist" trope like this detail suggests.

    I'm cautious hoping that this one is good.

    Just saw this at the local book store right next to another althist book, The Madagascar Plan.

    Anyone have a review or a link to a good one to either of these books?

    (>Personal Rant< Its a good store but when it comes to Alternate History sometimes the books go in the general fiction section and sometimes they go in the Sci-Fi section. If it was just one or the other it would be fine but a seemingly random mix of both is annoying.)
