If the North Had Won the Civil War: a preview
From the author of Gray Tide in the East and Tidal Effects comes a unique look at the American Civil War. If the North Had Won the Civil War is two alternate history novels in one. The modern story follows author and history professor Jack Sawyer, his fiancée Annabelle, fellow history professor Buzz Hanson and Buzz's girlfriend, Lydia through a nightmarish modern-day Confederacy where any person with a drop of black blood in his veins is denied basic human rights and confined to a "Preserve." Jack’s book, "If the North Had Won the Civil War", attacks deeply held Southern beliefs, a crime in the CSA. Interwoven with the modern story is Jack's alternate history of the Civil War, written with the painstaking historical authenticity Mr. Heller's fans have come to expect.
Gray Tide in the East: An alternate history of the First World War
August 1, 1914, Berlin: Kaiser Wilhelm II cancels the German invasion of Belgium over the objections of his generals, sending his armies East against Russia instead of West to France, and sets off a chain of events that will radically change the course of modern history.
Gray Tide in the East is the best-selling counterfactual history of the First World War, if the Germans had not invaded Belgium in 1914 and thereby brought Great Britain and, eventually, the United States into the war. The carefully researched story is told by a host of real historical figures both famous (William Jennings Bryan, Winston Churchill) and obscure (Albert Dawson, Joost van Vollenhoven) and spans the globe from Washington, D.C. to Hanoi, from bloody battlefields to the secret chambers of diplomats.
Good: Glinda the Good and the Plot Against the Wicked Witch of the North
Long before the Oscar Diggs' balloon carried him off from the county fair to his destiny as a humbug Wizard or a twister turned Dorothy Gale's farmhouse into a flying merry-go-round, Oz groaned under the tyranny of the Wicked Witches...the Witches, and their great enemy, Glinda the Good. For Glinda, nothing was more important than the destruction of the Wicked Witches. She was willing to pay any price to win her private war with the Witches, even if that price was the life of an innocent girl. Good is an exciting fantasy adventure, filled with humor, magic, talking beasts, humbug magicians and intrigue, set in Oz a century before the events described in The Wizard of Oz, but it is also asks serious questions about good and evil, and why, at times, they are not so very different.
