My face is normal again - well, as normal as can be, heh. I went to the dentist on Monday and he pulled the tooth that had caused the abscess. And yay, praise God, I'm pain-free. Such a relief!
I'm blogging about Alternate History today over at the Prairie Chicks. Alternate History is a fascinating subgenre of Speculative(Science) Fiction and Historical Fiction. It asks the question, "What if something changed history?" Alternate History has intrigued me from the first moment I read about it in a Jeff Gerke interview (Marcher Lord Press ).
Take a look at this story idea:
Genre: Alternate History
Background: Because of the Great Wars, women outnumbered men 2 to 1. With the discovery of the new land of Canada, Europe sent boatloads of citizens, 2 women for every male in an attempt to renew the male population. But in the new land, the women rebelled. Tired of war, outnumbering the men, they formed the new government. After years of peace, men in the west rebelled. The government formed a mounted peace corps to patrol the west. Armed with rifles and pistols, the peacemakers were under order to talk first and only shoot in defense.
Heroine: Constable Nellie Porter of the NorthWest Mounted PeaceMakers
Setting: Fort Walsh, Saskatchewan
Mission: To capture the renegade Mitchell Brandon and bring him in to face the charges of treason and insurgence.
Promise: I, Nellie Porter, will not rest until I get my man. *wink*
Well, whaddya think?
