I hear a lot of lip service given to the idea that conventions are made to be broken, and to the idea that Doctor Who has no fixed conventions at all in terms of in universe restrictions, i.e., a canon. And those who know me know that I’m very open to the idea of a […]Read more "Why The Doctor?"
Big milestone. Yeah, it’s only six bucks so far, and it’s Amazon Kindle, but it’s good. In fact, this story was never posted on this blog, and I think most readers here would like it if they’ve been fond of my fiction. It’s called Magnificent Desolation. The other story was here, and it has been […]Read more "Woooo! Published and paid!"
The following is a psychochronography — to use Philip Sandifer’s wonderful term — of Doctor Who, particularly those episodes aired from 1990-2004. This is my favorite part of the show — partially because it is so controversial, partially because most of the hardcore Secret Masters of Fandom want to forget it exists. I’m sure when […]Read more "The Deserts of Bohemia: Doctor Who Season 27"
The last work I did on this was May 20, 2014. The story left my hands at that point. I am no longer sure of this draft but a universe much like it will again have stories in it by that date in 2016. THIS IS MY WILL IN FIRE BORN. V March 20, 1946 […]Read more "The House That Jack Built: Chapter V"
First timeline is here. I’ve had this account for a year, just nothing ever grabbed me enough. I came up with the idea almost literally overnight, and as usual my intuitions about remixes of history led to some surprising real life matches. It seems that whatever you imagine, it has a niche in the ecology of […]Read more "I am now active on AlternateHistory.com!"
V March 20, 1946 Sandia Base, New Mexico Geoge Stephen Morrison, a decorated officer in the United States Navy, veteran of World War II’s Pacific air war, erstwhile astral contact of Marjorie Cameron Parsons, sat in his office, staring at the wall. I have a three-year-old son. What am I even doing? James Douglas Morrison […]Read more "The House That Jack Built (Chapter V)"
Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And […]Read more "To Read Them Openly (Doctor Who: Face The Raven Review)"
I’d like to thank my most dedicated readers in America’s hat for making this blog what it is. You most of all have encouraged me to go for broke and publish, because apparently Canadians will read anything! You don’t get to burn the White House in the German timeline, at least not yet, but I’m […]Read more "Blame Canada!"
June 24, 1948: Soviet blockade of Berlin begins. June 25, 1948-October 31, 1948: Berlin Airlift commences. American intelligence begins funding proxy resistance groups, composed of students, various members of Protestant and Mormon sects, and rearmed Nazis. These organizations are given all possible aid to reestablish access to Berlin as the airlift continues. November 1, 1948: […]Read more "Gotterwanderung: Timeline (Draft)"
“A ray of sun has pierced the frozen sky, from New Berlin in German Wisconsin to New Braunfels in German Texas. A people without a heritage, without number, extend across the continent of America, bringing scientific knowledge and technical expertise with them, and greater lessons still. A people without a country who not ten years […]Read more "GOTTERWANDERUNG (Teaser Trailer 1)"
