Hello, and welcome to Shining Moon: A Speculative Fiction Podcast, Episode 10. Today we’ll continue our series by asking what it takes to write Alternate History and Secret History, what the differences between those two terms are, and we’ll explore some examples of each.
My guests this week are Anatoly Belilovsky, Marie Brennan, Laurence Brothers, and Kate Heartfield.
Anatoly Belilovsky tweets occasionally at @loldoc.
