Works

The Incomplete Works of Jared


In AH.com culture

Jared was once notorious for never finishing any project he started. Despite having been a member of alternatehistory.com since early in 2004, and posting to soc.history.what-if for several years before that, he had never, ever finished a timeline or AH story until relatively recently.

However, in the past few years, this former “writing curse” has been extensively remedied with the wrapping up of Decades of Darkness. Since late 2008, he has been making steady progress with his new timeline about the birth of native Australian agriculture and how it changes the world, Lands of Red and Gold. Many AH.commers are currently in agreement that “LORAG” is Jared's real magnum opus and is already even surpassing the scope, ambition and quality of DOD.


In AH.com Fiction

A character based on Jared played the role of a librarian in the Great Library of the Kitjedi Knights from AH.com Wars. As a reference to Jared's well-regarded timeline, he drops a deliberately out-of-character quip about “writing his acclaimed, hyper-detailed AH masterpiece, Decades of Darkness”.
