COMEDY THROUGH THE (P)AGES
Comedic storytelling has a long, if you’ll pardon the phrase, history. Which was pretty much all the excuse that was needed for this. 11 tales of how history might've been different, but eschewing any and all attempts to be serious about it. Sometimes, history is funny. Alternate history can be funny too. Honest.
David Flin edits a collection of counterfactuals certainly worthy of a chuckle or two, including tales of the absurd; carefully-crafted puns; farce; and many aspects of humour. Vikings and Macedonians and Soviets and the Wild West are here, as well as – for reasons that baffle him – a large helping of cats.
