entry arrow1:18 PM | An Alternative History of the Philippines


Banging your head thinking up of a possible storyline to develop? Interested in speculative fiction, especially in the subgenre of alternative history? Paolo Chikiamco, over at Anitero, has compiled a list of ideas for stories. Many are quite intriguing. Examples to whet your appetite: What if Pope John Paul II had been assassinated during the 1995 World Youth Day? What if Noli Me Tangere had been written in Tagalog? What if MacArthur had repulsed the Japanese attack against Clark? What if the British had conquered the Philippines?

Here's the complete list.
