'Alternative', not 'alternate'.[edit]

'Alternative history' is an exclusively British English term according to this article, when in fact it is simply correct English, as any good dictionary will attest.

The title of the page should be 'Alternative history' and in the first sentence it should be noted 'often incorrectly referred to as Alternate history '. --217.42.52.22 (talk) 13:39, 21 February 2017 (UTC)H. A. LynchReply[reply]

Doesn't matter. "Alternate history" is what it's called in American English, and that's what the article used when it was first started. See Talk:Alternate history/Archive 3#Alternative vs Alternate for a 2015 discussion, and links there to previous discussions on the subject. - BilCat (talk) 13:51, 21 February 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Tumblr site[edit]

There's also the Tumblr site The Alt-Historian, "A Neo-Atomic Tango Thru a World of Dreams: We travel, record, observe, and document-- and are always home just in time for supper."
