Missing History Challenge

Alternate History

Write a 500-1000 word story set in an alternative timeline in which some historical person never existed or never did/achieved that they are famous for.


Image a timeline where a significant person in history never existed.  How would the world look today if Genghis Khan had never lived?  Or if Oppenheimer had decided to become a mechanic?  This is your challenge.  Describe the world you envision and leave us, the reader, to figure out who is missing from history.  This promises to be one of our most difficult challenges to date, and we can't wait to see how you all step up and play this missing history challenge!

Theme: History that Never Was Word Count: Between 500 and 1,000 Required Phrase: "on the nose" Setting: Earth Time Period: Present (alternate timeline)
