in 1891, having spent the night under lock and key in the governor's mansion in Topeka, Kansas, former president Grover Cleveland meets again with 'Sockless' Simpson. “Mr. President, I hope you understand that we Kansans didn't undertake rebellion lightly,” Simpson says to Cleveland. “But, after the travesty of your so-called loss in the last election, we had little hope of justice in matters dealing directly with us unless we took direct action to ensure that justice. I have heard from other leaders in the Progressive movement across the nation, and they are ready to take to the streets in each state. If a man of your stature were to join us, there is nothing we might not accomplish.” Cleveland stood and stared hard into the eyes of the rebel. “Sir, I fought in a war so that my nation would not be split by rebels seeking to undermine the lawful government of the people. I shall not lend my name to another endeavor to do the same, merely because it might benefit me somewhat.” Simpson sends the former president back to his room, and ponders what his next move might be.

in 1998, Arthur Pendrake plans a large Easter Mass in the old Catholic style. He has spread word that all who support him should flood Britain's Catholic churches on the 12th to show their support for his continued quest to rule the British Isles. The Archbishop of Canterbury, primate of the Church of England, requests the presence of all Britons at the church of their choice – but especially at the C of E. Arthur's appeal to religion strikes the queen as an outrageous tactic, and she denounces him as, “Another in a long line of fanatics who shall be dealt with as surely as we dealt with Guy Fawkes.” The implied threat of Arthur's execution stirs up unintended support for the would-be king, and the nation braces for a stormy Easter.

In 1983 Hugh Trevor-Roper presented the counter-evidence to his incredulous fellow historians Lawrence Stone and Christopher Hill. Hitler's given name Adolf was a translation of 'noble wolf' from the Old High German name Adalwolf, being derived from the phonetics 'Adel' (nobility) and wolf. Hitler's self-given nicknames ..

In 1999 Philip Roth published his sequel to his masterpiece The Plot Against America. In The Plot Against Britain Roth explored a wholly imagined thesis and sees it through to the end: Oswald Mosley becomes British Prime Minister in 1938 as seen through the eyes of a Jewish family in the ..
