Showcase Update 1

It's me again my dear readers! Pardon me for the prolonged absence, but exams have been keeping me crunched for time this month, thus keeping me from giving you many interesting articles. Rest assured, with summer break coming up, I have many wonderful articles and showcases in store for you just in time for summer blockbuster season!

Until then, I'd like to point out I have not been the only one busy lately. Many of the worlds and works I've showcased on here have been through a string of updates recently, providing some juicy stories and events for you and I to watch unfold. For that, I present the latest series of articles from AHWU, the Showcase Update, where we inform you of current events in the various alternate histories we've showcased here. We've got three of our heavy hitters up today, and here they are:

A World of Laughter, a World of Tears

After a long break, Statichaos has finally rebooted and begun work on the long awaited sequel, When You Wish Upon a Star. If you want to see the aftermath of the Disney administration this will be a work to keep an eye on - rest assured we will be.

An Age of Miracles: The Revival of Rhomanion

For those who wondered how the war between Timur and the Byzantines would end, there's news on that front and more - most recently, a war between a grand alliance of the Byzantines, Russians, Georgians, Vlachia and the Ottomans against Timurs son, who has forged an empire larger than that of Genghis Khan himself, and now seeks to subdue those who humbled his father. The conflict, which bears a Lord of the Rings esque flavor, thanks to yours truly, just concluded in an epic conflict known as The Battle - who's still standing? Read and find out!

Dominion of Southern America

Glen has been quite busy since my first showcase - most notably in the form of the DSA verse fighting a WWI esque conflict over a new school of proto-fascism that has swept many of the nations into it's grasp. The school of thought? Korsgaardism. That's right my dear readers, I cameo in the TL, as the founder of a school of political philosophy that sparks a global war. I don't know whether to be honored or scared, but either way, the conflict is brilliantly unfolding and a great read!

Just goes to show - frequent a timeline, and you too can start a global war in an alternate world!

Soldier, scholar, writer and web-voyeur, Sean CW Korsgaard has been active in the alternate history community since 2006, and was recently elected to succeed Mitro as President of the Alternate History Online Facebook group. In addition to his contributions at the Alternate History Weekly Update, he writes for several websites, including his own, which can be found here. In another world, his ancestors created a school of ultranationalistic proto-fascism that would spark a global war.
