New version of the game, same rules. The first poster chooses a category of books, and gives a title and name of the author. Posters are allowed 2 posts before coming in again. The poster of the 10th book in a category chooses the next category.

This category is Ten "alternate reality/history" books.


1. The Ultimate Solution by Eric Norden

A world resulting from a total Nazi and Imperial Japanese victory in World War II and partition of the world between them.
