Editorial by Mark Lord

Welcome to the fourth issue of Alt Hist: the New Magazine of Historical Fiction and Alternate History. With this issue we are now well into our second year of publication, and everything seems to be going well. This issue contains top-quality stories from a variety of genres: horror, alternate history and fantasy, as well as straight up historical fiction, including a prevalence of stories set during World War II, which is always a popular period for historical fiction and alternate history, but we’ve gone overboard this time. For the cover, however, I decided to select an image related to our first story, ‘Restless’ by Dylan Fox, this piece is set in the 1860s and bordering perhaps on steampunk. ‘Restless’ features ironclad warships of Her Majesty’s Royal Navy, so I couldn’t resist a cover image featuring one such ship (although the ship in question is actually French, but never mind ...). I have wanted to put a ship on the cover for a while now.
