Book Description HTML
A collection of short fiction -- a miscellany of the apocryphal and grim. Many of the stories are what would be called 'alternate history,' although I prefer to use the term 'apocryphal tales' as the fiction combine a base of what is considered to be historical fact with what is nothing short of conjectures and speculations of fictional entities (characters or narrators.) The intent is to blur the line between accepted fact and purely creative fancy in acknowledgment of the distance and complexity of the past which preclude our knowing with the certitude we are taught to approach history.
