Alternate History

Alternate history is a subgenre of speculative fiction (or science fiction) and historical fiction that is set in a world in which history has diverged from the actual history of the world. Alternate history literature asks the question, "What if history had developed differently?" Most works in this genre are based on real historical events, yet feature social, geopolitical, or industrial circumstances that developed differently than our own.

Justina Ireland Dread Nation (Dread Nation, #1)
In the wake of the Civil War, the United States is plagued by political upheaval...and zombies. The post-apocalyptic world of Dread Nation is filled with tough choices, especially for women of color like Jane McKeene. We asked author Justina Ireland to delve into this alternate history as well as what drives her "fearless and contrary" heroine.

Sound bytes. Catch phrases. Sales pitches. Words. All lexical legitimizing. ‘A rose by any other name…’ he said. In the end it’s all propaganda.
