Secret History vs. Alternate History

What is the difference between writing secret history and writing alternate history? How can authors mine the history of science to make feasible predictions about how technology might evolve? Do events unfold in a linear fashion, or is the one constant that history always throws curve balls?

We endeavor to answer all these questions and more on the latest episode of Geek Gab. Join us as we talk future history for fictional purposes with author and scientist Hans G. Schantz.

Reminder: only two days remain to get my Campbell Award-worthy space opera/horror novel Nethereal for just $0.99, and the entire Soul Cycle series for less than $9.

The Ophian Rising, Soul Cycle Book IV, is progressing nicely toward completion. If you haven't read the first three books in the series yet, you've still got time to finish before the final book's release.

And newsletter subscribers can expect a sneak preview of major Ophian Rising-related development soon.
