Welcome to David Atwell's alternative history page;
the home of the Human Time Line saga.

To define this website as simply alternative history
would no longer serve the work done herein full justice.
Although originally this website was exactly that, like all
things living, it has changed & evolved over time.

This website, today, has become a realm of future history &
science fiction. Nonetheless, you'll still find some of those
what ifs that could have happened & some what ifs
that are just fun to play with!

Tomorrow, however, this website will once again evolve
into a different place - a future history of our planet, life,
our solar system & the ramifications for our Galaxy.

(26 August 2002) In a change of direction, for a little while, we're going back to basics - back to some good old fashioned alternative history, where there are no space ships, no aliens & no UFP! In Alternative Histories of the First Age you will find two histories: The Crises of 1914 and The Beginnings of World War 1. (18 August 2002) The Short Ascension of Europa just keeps on keeping on! Chapter 3: Transformation is now online for you reading pleasure.

(12 August 2002) Now that The Short Ascension of Europa is moving ahead at full steam, Chapter 2: Life Under An Ice Sky is now online. Thanks to those who have signed the guestbook lately (but haven't left their email address). I hope you all enjoy the new series...

(7 August 2002) I'm a fibber! I know I said that the next series was some time off, but unlike previously, it is more or less writing itself. The result is that Chapter 1: The Dawn of The Short Ascension of Europa is now online. Enjoy!

(29 July 2002) As a teaser to the next series, which I'll stress is some time off, three prologues have been put online for each of the respective forthcoming "histories" - The Short Ascension of Europa, Last Stand At Titan & Genesis Revisited. I hope they give you a basic idea of the next installments ...
