    Secret history wrapped in alternate history. I've been reading alternate history for some time now. I've only recently gotten into secret history with Simon R. Green's Secret Histories (aka Eddie Drood) series. (Secret history has been a longtime category of science fiction, just new to me.)Another Girl, Another Planet uses an "unreliable narrator" for this alternate history. Where the person relating his story is surprised that anyone might believe his tale and where the person has no explanati [...]

    Good Lord, Lou Antonelli did something I thought was impossible. He made me like an alternative history story, and usually I hate those.The story starts and ends with three aluminum crosses under a Martian sky. In between we are treated to a world where the West and the Eastern Bloc have a space race, instead of an arms race, and the moon is an old colony: Mars is the new frontier. As with any alternative history piece there are names and events you will recognize, but in new contexts. In this w [...]

    Government agents are confronted with a mystery when three graves are found on Mars and on one grave marker a business card with a name and address on it. Dave Shuster the man identified through this information is confronted and he relates a story of another timeline/reality in which the cold war never developed and the US and Soviets joined forces to colonise space. Within decades humanity had a large functioning lunar colony and a young and vibrate facility on Mars. After a failed senate run [...]

    A gripping alternate history of a space program that never was. The divergence seems to be Roosevelt dying earlier, leaving Henry Wallace as President, and "Admiral Heinlein" back in the navy. The protagonist gets what is supposed to be just another political job, and finds himself not only in charge of the joint US-Soviet Mars colony, but neck deep in intrigues of "accidental" deaths that aren't, and scheming by commie capitalists. (It Makes Sense In Context). The story also delves into the phi [...]

    Ok-ish alternate history mystery/detective SF. I thought the plot twists were reasonably interesting although not that well realized. I couldn't tell whether the author's writing style was intentionally a homage to the "golden era" stories of the 40s, or if that's just the way he writes. Either way, it didn't do much for me. I probably would have liked this book a lot more in my mid-late teens.

    Extraordinary tale. Creative & Mysterious. Lou Antonelli is a creative writer & thinker. He seems to have a great grasp on beauracracy, politics & space travel. Love stories & greed. It's all there & more. I've read 30 SciFi novels in 2 years and this is up there with the best. Worth the read.
