I’ve entitled one of my pages “Historical SF“, but what is historical science fiction, and where, if at all, does it differ from alternative history?
I try to give some sort of answer to this on the page, but probably one of the best answers I can give is my YouTube talk on Angels Unawares, my science fiction story set in Renaissance Italy, and an Islamic country at the same time, which you can find on the same page. The video also includes me reading the first chapter, so you can get an idea of what the book is about.
It’s a genre I am rather fond of, and one where I hope to be writing more in the future.
In the meantime, enjoy this trailer for The Untime Revisited.
