When you run a convention dedicated to reinterpretation, debates get hot, as the organizers of AnachroCon (mission: “present all sides of the historical record”) know full well. The organization “does not support or condone any singular interpretation of historical events but presents all views to its members.” So if you want to argue that Sherlock Holmes raised dragons and time-traveled to the Vietnam War, no one will question you.

On the calendar: Set your clocks back for the annual convention on alternate history at the Atlanta Marriott Century Center from February 27 – March 1.
