Welcome to Counter-Factual.Net!
Welcome to Counter-Factual.Net , a site specializing in alternate history, science fiction, writing, and related topics. At the present, we are still in the process of building the site, however, numerous features will be added soon. These features will include a Web Zine, a fully functional discussion forum, and a variety of articles. Keep on checking the site for updates, we expect to have most of the features functional within weeks.
UPDATE - April 6, 2010 - New issue of "Counter-Factual Courier" is now available in the ZINE section - check it out!
A good place for reference is the FAQ section. Or, if you would rather jump straight in, the Zine is a good place to start for both Alternate History and Science Fiction/Fantasy related topics. Finally, we have a discussion forum, where we endeavor to create an open, civil, and free environment to discuss Alternate History, Science Fiction, or the world in general. Please make sure that you read the Forum Rules before joining and posting.
Alternate History is a study of "what-ifs" throughout history, and what would have happened. Have you ever wondered what would have happened if the Soviet Union won the Cold War? Or if The Beatles never became popular outside of the United Kingdom? Or if the Roman Empire never fell?
These are all examples of Alternate History. The purpose of this site is to provide an online resource for all things related to Alternate History, as well as to provide an environment for discussion, debate, and communication for those with interest in the topic throughout the world.
