What if Hitler had not lost the Second World War?
After developing his own atom bomb, Hitler conquered most of Europe and Russia but reached a stalemate with America. In the ensuing cold war, Germany suffers renewed inflation and is stifled by an overstratified bureaucracy while America prospers but devolves into a fractured country of rugged individualists. This warped mirror image of our world is seen through the eyes of New York editor Alan Whittmore and through two of his publications.
Thirty years after the war’s end, Hilda Goebbels, the daughter of Hitler’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and now a world-famous anarchist, threatens to release her father’s long-suppressed diaries—revealing the bizarre fantasies at the core of Nazi doctrine, which could destroy the Reich.
From 1936 to 1939, in the war torn world of the Spanish Civil War, proponents of every major intellectual, economic, political, and philosophical movement of the 20th Century came together for what most believed was to be an epic battle for the future of mankind. Artists, literary émigrés, reporters, philosophers, literary giants, and political activists all poured into Spain to be where the action was!
Now, in Brad Linaweaver’s and Kent Hastings’ epic: Anarquía: An Alternate History of the Spanish Civil War, a new vision of the Spanish Civil War has been brought to life. Two revolutionaries who, in our universe would become twin stars of the firmaments of Hollywood and Cape Kennedy become instead, in the universe of Anarquía, the twin fulcrums on which pivot the hopes of the future. Hedy Lamarr and Wernher von Braun join Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, John Dos Passos, Ayn Rand, G. K. Chesterton, and a host of others who populate Linaweaver’s and Hastings’ universe in the alternate history Spanish Civil War universe of Anarquía.
Quinn Mallory and his friends are about to find out what it’s like to take the ultimate “slide” through parallel dimensions of Earth. Each time they step through the strange portals that Quinn discovers, a new present-day San Francisco awaits. At times it will be fascinating, at times frightening—but always dangerous.
