@wildkardde- alternate history

< is there anything you have to keep in mind when writing that specific genre?>

I think as long as there is a speculative element of some sort: magic (fantasy) or steampunk machinery (sci-fi...maybe) throughout the story you'll be good with it.

I think alternate history falls under the "speculative" umbrella already - it just needs to be clear that it is, in fact, alternate history. But that's a subjective and slippery slope - probably up to the judges. Maybe Kary will pop in with an insight.

I read Tsuu, Tsuu, Kasva Suuremasse, in v38 today, Rebecca, is that considered alternate history?
