Last Saturday, the Chilean newspaper El Mercurio ran a piece on alternate histories—”ucronías”—featuring an interview with yours truly. The article is behind a paywall, but here’s a grab from the PDF the reporter, Alberto Rojas, sent me:
The other books mentioned in the article are Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle, Robert Harris’s Fatherland, Keith Roberts’s Pavane, Kim Stanley Robinson’s The Years of Rice and Salt, Robert Silverberg’s Roma Eterna, and Jorge Baradit’s Synco.

Woah, congratulations ! Nice piece.
On the cue “alternate histories” I wanted to point out the movie “Iron Sky” to you, first of all because it’s so entertaining and full of hilarious ideas.
According to IMDb it was shown in the US only at the South by Southwest Film Festival. Hopefully it’s going to get a general release. It’s worth watching on the big screen.
So far it doesn’t look like a general release is happening here, though I imagine it’ll show up in this year’s Seattle Film Festival. From the trailers I was thinking it was more of a Netflix rental, but maybe I’ll reconsider.
