About Jared Kavanagh
Jared Kavanagh is an Australian author of alternate history and other speculative fiction. He took up writing as an occupation after trying over seventy other jobs in his life. He has worked in fields such as town planning, sales, customer service IT, mediation, occupational rehabilitation, academia, and many others. None of those jobs have lasted more than a couple of years. He plans to keep writing for much longer than that.
His shortest job lasted three hours. He had been told the job was graphic design, but when he started the job turned out to be data entry. So he went on an early lunch break and never came back. He quickly learned not to list most of his jobs on his résumé after one interviewer asked him when he was going to stop his career promiscuity. He decided it was easier to stop listing most jobs than it was to stop the career promiscuity.

Then, someone had an idea. We were writers. We should write a book, an anthology, with proceeds going to help with the rebuilding of Ukraine.
From that, things flowed quickly. The theme of rebuilding became adopted: “Building a Better Future.”
That’s what you’re holding in your hands. The product of a group of historical writers trying to do something to help the people of Ukraine.
Aururian peoples had little contact with the outside world, until the Maori first visited in 1310, and then the Dutch in 1619. The Dutch and English trading companies have established their first toeholds on the continent. The two companies are seeking to control the people of Aururia, and exploit its wealth for their own profits.
As the English and Dutch battle each other across the continent, the Aururians face the greatest challenge in their history. Can they find a way to maintain their independence and turn the invaders' technology and weapons against them?
Now, Sea Lion Press authors both old and new consider how that history could have been different. What if Corporal Hitler had died in the trenches, or the war really had been ‘over by Christmas’? The poppy petals are scattered to a new pattern by the tides of ‘what if?’ Includes the Sidewise Award-nominated 'N'oublions Jamais' by Tom Anderson and Bruno Lombardi.
Fourteen tales of the Great War as it wasn’t – but could have been.
What if what we call Australia had become largely Dutch? Could Australia have led intervention in unexpected African conflicts? What adventures might Napoleon Bonaparte have had as he sought to colonise it before the British? Could a space programme launched Woomera have reached the Moon? How might the Emu War have gone differently?
It's time to turn Down Under upside-down.
When Europeans first visit Australia’s shores, they find a land that is alien to everything they know. A land of many new cultures, of ancient cities, proud warriors, new faiths, and dangerous diseases. A land of gold and spices. A land of temptation, where the European trading companies seek to claim new wealth wherever they can find it.
This is the tale of the new cultures which emerged in changed Australia, and of the collision of cultures when Europeans arrive. A tale of commerce and would-be conquistadors. A time of challenge, where the question is whether this new land of gold will also be stained with blood.

What if they weren't? What if Canada had won its independence in 1837? What if the Taiping rebels had formed their own country in China? What if Trinidad revolted against the British in the 1930s? What if a Socialist Commune arose in East Sussex?
In this collection of 13 short stories, the authors of Sea Lion Press explore the revolutions that never happened.
David Flin edits a collection of counterfactuals certainly worthy of a chuckle or two, including tales of the absurd; carefully-crafted puns; farce; and many aspects of humour. Vikings and Macedonians and Soviets and the Wild West are here, as well as – for reasons that baffle him – a large helping of cats.
What if werewolves were a real threat in fifties Europe? What if we could fix the human brain? What if Shelley hadn't gone to Switzerland?
What if we could save ourselves from terror?
Thirteen tales of horror - thirteen tales of another doom.
