How You Can Contribute
Any and all original alternate histories are permitted here. You are welcome to contribute any pages you wish, whether it be a minor sketch of an alternate history or an entire story that's fully-fleshed out. Should you have suggestions or material you'd wish to add to an existing alt-history, please contact the author to discuss integration, or propose it on the discussion pages. Please make sure you understand the typical definition of Alternate History, found in the What is Alternate History page. While Future Histories are interesting, as is Science Fiction, these are not within the scope of our wiki. Note that only those timelines which are created by the author should be posted and not those which are derivative work.

While at this time we are only exhibiting pages relating to our Alternate histories, we aren't ruling out the possibilities of discussion, or description pages to help would-be alt-historians get off to a good start.

Please read and adhere to the Conventions in use in this wiki before you start contributing!

This Month's Featured Althist
British Louisiana

North America in 2001

Britain fails to capture Cuba during the Seven Years War, but gets Louisiana from the French. A loyalist Louisiana becomes a western Canada to the nascent USA. Spain decides to crush the South American rebellions that followed the American Independence War by destroying the communities and sending massive deportations to Florida and California. The French Revolution happens but on a more moderate rate. Much smaller Terror, no regicide, and no paved path to a Napoleonic empire. Prussian King Frederick Wilhem II is so concentrated in weakening Austria that instead of acting upon Polish reforms that OTL lead to the second partition of Poland, supports instead the Netherlandish Union.

Massive change abounds.
