Alternate History Fiction seeks to grow by including stories, poems, and articles of any length by authors who wish to submit their work for presentation here. All copyrights remain with the author, and the story, poem or article can be taken down later by request if so desired.
Stories do not have to conform to any particular standard, other than being a good read. Pornographic stories will not be posted, however good they may be, but elements of adult relationships are perfectly welcome as part of a wider story-telling.
Fanfic and cross-overs are perfectly acceptable, and we would be interested in seeing some of the vast body of MLP FiM work out there. Science Fiction, ISOT and ASB stories are also welcome, as long as they meet the quality threshold.
Artwork can be included with a story by request, and inclusion of the pictures, maps etc. Please note copyright remains with the original artist/photographer so please either seek their permission or include a reference to their name if not using your own material. If using derivative material, a mention of the originating copyright holder may be inserted by the webmaster (eg Hasbro).
Story layout on the site is at the webmaster's discretion, but please request any colours, themes etc on submission if you have strong feelings about this. Otherwise, every effort will be made to remain true to the original presentation and spacing, whilst making necessary changes to make reading online more pleasurable (eg pagination, or subtle background colouration for paragraphs).
Poems and articles can be about anything that would be considered relevant and interesting to the readers of this site. Poetry has the fewest boundaries, and those can be pushed if the author so wishes. Articles should be, broadly, historical or about issues in alternate history, or in writing historical fiction, but other takes on these issues can certainly be considered - eg the impact of fandom.
To submit your work for consideration, please email the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org with your enquiry and, preferably, a copy of your story, poem or piece so work can begin on assessing its suitability for the website straight away. My email address is now back up and running (it was spammed to death by blog replies, a function now turned off) and I will endeavour to respond with at least an acknowledgment of receipt within the same week.
Many thanks to Jonathan Doering for the first published submission, Battalion 202, set in 1941, removed at author's request as he had interest from a professional publisher in the story.
