Alternate history is neither pure fiction nor history because, done well, it can be both. There are different definitions and different standards depending on who you talk to. However, an alternate history is not a historical novel because those stories accept the facts and live within them. Alternate history moves beyond them and creates new facts, ideally, in a way that makes the history that replaces the narrative we've lived still feel fresh and compelling.

My specialty has been weaving new dramatic stories within the boundaries of real history. My obsession has been two-fold: JFK and UFOs, and I've written a book on each topic. In 1997, I brought them both together in an NBC series, Dark Skies.
