Tom Colton

TL writer and one of the Politibrits, primarily known for the Weber's Germany - The Veterinarian Totalitarian timeline, which will probably follow him to his grave despite his efforts to diversify his output to TLIADs and Infoboxes. Also infamous for letting far-too-ambitious projects die out.

Weberverse works

Title of work Thread links Synopsis Notes
Weber's Germany: The Veterinarian Totalitarian Thread Hitler is killed in the Munich Beer Hall Putsch, and an otherwise obscure Nazi, the veterinarian Friedrich Weber distorts Mein Kampf and takes a more measured tone to rearmament and expansionism, leading to greater and more permanent German success in the next World War. Ongoing since 2014 with frequent hiatuses, this remains his most famous (and most infamous) work, primarily for the massive inferred fallout in every chapter and the sheer creepiness of the Weber regime and its insidiousness. 2015 Turtledove Award recipient.
The Canadian Queen of England Post Edward VIII meets a relative of the Kennedies instead of Wallis Simpson, and winds up holding on to his throne till his death. The first Weberverse spinoff work, briefly exploring an alternate Royal Family.
An Outline of the Asia-Pacific War Index The war in the East, detailing a tougher fight in the opening stages leading to a more drawn-out conflict. An aborted attempt at telling the parallel story of the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Pacific War.
Swing Low, Sweet Grasshopper Thread William J. Blazcowicz and Agent One are deployed to Schloss Wolfsburg to disrupt the Weberreich's armour production, and B.J.'s brought some interesting reading material. An exploration of what AH fiction looks like inside the Weberverse, with Himmler instead ascending to the Nazi throne in the in-universe Night of the Swastika, and a healthy dash of Wolfenstein as well.
