Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer John Allenson:
“What do you think are good turning points?”
I’ll elaborate a little on John’s question. Most alternate histories choose a point in our own past and ask the question – what if this had gone the other way?:
- What if Hitler had won WWII?
- What if the black plague had killed everyone in Europe?
- What if the Dark Ages had never happened?
- What if the Japanese had discovered North America first?
So what are some alternate histories you’d like to see? What point in history would you suggest be changed, and how?
