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.

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. :)

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.
