Rvbomally is known for his dystopic scenarios and his skill in creating these dark worlds is readily apparent as he seamlessly merged these two fine examples of grimdark alternate history. The fact that Decades of Darkness was created as a plausible version of Stirling's Draka, means there is an subtle sense of humor to the work that people well verse in alternate history web originals will enjoy.
Honorable mentions this week goes to Bruce Munro's cover of Toyotomi Japan (see description here) and Zoidberg12's Timeline of the Disunited States of America, which is actually a short timeline that covers the history of Turtledove's The Disunited States of America.
