UK low-paying Magazine which ran for ten issues from October 2010 to February 2017; published and edited by Mark Lord in Hertfordshire, at irregular intervals once or twice a year, available both as a Print Magazine and Ebook. It was primarily intended as a magazine of historical fiction but also featured Alternate History which usually provided about half the contents. In the first issue (October 2010), for example, is an alternate American Civil War story, "Lament for Lost Atlanta" by Arlan Andrews, as well as an intriguing fantasy of alternate history with "The Bitterness of Apples" by Priya Sharma which explores the later lives of Adam and Eve and the rediscovery of Eden. In later issues the variety of alternate histories range from "The Apollo Mission" by David X Wiggin in issue #2 (June 2011), wherein Rocket technology (see also Space Flight) was known to the ancient Romans, to "Independence Day" by Pavel Nikiforovich in issue #7, where July 4th has a different significance in a United States where the majority did not choose independence. #2 also saw the debut of Natasha Pulley with "The Watchmaker of Filigree Street" as by N K Pulley. The most significant alternate history series is "Battalion 202" by Jonathan Doering, which ran from issue #4 to issue #10, sometimes two stories per issue, and charted the impact of the German invasion during World War 2 in Yorkshire.
