It's finally here after forever and a day. The premier issue of Alternate History Fiction Magazine is out now on Amazon Kindle, Apple iBooks and Nook. The print edition is available as well. It's only $0.99 for digital and $15.49 for physical. It contains my alternate history flash fiction story "Ghosts of Athens" as the very first entry. So, as per usual I'm going to tell you a bit about my story.
I had intended for my previous story "Happy Dominion Day" to end up in this magazine, but due to a mix-up it wound up in The Wolfian instead. They are both run by the same guy. However, had the mix-up not occurred I probably would have never written "Ghosts of Athens." This story takes place in a world where Persia conquered Greece, and by the present day Persia is still a major world power. It follows a Greek tour guide name Fazrin who runs tours the ruins of Athens. He meets a Roman woman named Victoria and the two muse on how history might have been if the Greeks had successfully resisted the Persians.
It is, admittedly, similar to "Happy Dominion Day" in that it features people from an alternate world hypothesizing about the history of our world. That said, I like "Ghosts of Athens" better as I feel that it is more polished and better realized. It is mostly alternate history, but I snuck in just a pinch of magical realism for flavor. As usual with these situations I was paid approximately $0.00, but at least it builds reputation.
So there you go. "Ghost of Athens" is, I would hope, a very enjoyable story. There's also plenty of other great alternate history, steampunk, science fiction and fantasy stories in the issue. Check out Alternate History Fiction Magazine today. I think you're going to enjoy it.
