About Mark Lord

I am a UK based writer, living in the southeast of England. I mostly write historical fiction and fantasy, although I also have been known to write a bit of Science Fiction now and again.

My favourite authors include Gene Wolfe, Ursula le Guin and Iain Banks, and I'm currently getting into Dan Simmons and Neal Stephenson. Outside SF&F I enjoy the thrillers of Robert Harris and I love Tolstoy's War and Peace.

I am also the Editor of Alt Hist, the new magazine of Historical Fiction and Alternate History.

My reading tastes, I think, are fairly broad. I like Gene Wolfe, Leo Tolstoy, Ursula le Guin and Iain Banks in particular, and I’m currently getting into Dan Simmons and Neal Stephenson.

Review by: Leonid Korogodski on Dec. 20, 2011 :
This magazine is a find for an alternate history fan. I have enjoyed this issue. I especially like the story by Seamus Sweeney, with its emotionally moving conclusion, and Matthew Warner's unusual protagonist. The other stories too are worth a read.

Review by: Pippa Roberts on Dec. 15, 2011 : (no rating)
I really enjoyed this and the content was very varied, with no two stories alike. My favourite was 'Riders on the Storm,' by Arlan Andrews, which struck me as very original -with quite a neat twist at the end. Overall an excellent standard. Look forward to seeing more. :)

Review by: Anna Sykora on Nov. 15, 2011 :
If you enjoy unique and compelling speculative tales set in vivid eras of historical conflict, this collection is for you. I particularly enjoyed the two U.S. Civil War tales: "Riders on the Storm," with its wildly imaginative premise, and "Bummers," which realistically portrays a little-known facet of that war... The other three tales are also dramatic and very well-written, and really made me think. Thanks to editor Mark Lord for this stunning issue, and I hope there will be many more to come.
