M.D. Missaiel (m_d_missaiel) | 1 comments For me it is the lessons learned (or not learned) when you compare and contrast our world with a fictional world that is better/worse because its history was different from ours.

This is the premise behind my debut novel The Alternative History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It is my examination of what we could have achieved if the Roman Empire had not fallen, as well as a proposal of what can be done to prevent the decline and fall of the American Empire today.
It does not only consider the consequences of history but also the parallels between the past and the present.
