The Alternate Historian

An alternate history blog run by mitro, focusing mainly on AH media, interviews and debates about AH. Launched in 2016, it serves as a spiritual successor to mitro's previous and successful AH blog, Alternate History Weekly Update. Unlike said previous blog, this one has a greater emphasis on videos, in addition to text-only articles.

There's a lot of good content to recommend, but we'd like to point out the most essential parts.

We can't recommend Mitro's ongoing “Warping History” of mini-documentaries highly enough. An episode-by-episode overview of online AH fandom and communities, and the role played by the Internet in the diversification, maturation and spread of the alternate history genre, its authors and its readership.

Warping History Ep. 1: GEnie, the 'Net Alternate History List, the Sidewise Awards and the 90s Boom

Warping History Ep. 2: SHWI, the POD APA, Brithenig, Uchronia and the 90s Fizzle

Warping History Ep. 3: The Rise of AlternateHistory.com and Other Communities

AH 101: The Sidewise Awards for Alternate History
