Never Was would like to extend a hearty congratulations to Matthew Kresal for his victory in the Sidewise Awards for Alternate History. His short story “Moonshot,” published in the Sea Lion Press anthology Alternate Australias edited by Jared Kavanagh, has won the 2020 Sidewise Award for Best Short Form Alternate History.
Matthew is a regular contributor to the blog of Sea Lion Press, the world’s first publishing house dedicated to alternate history and a Never Was partner. We’ve republished several of his stories and reviews.
In winning, Matthew has shown the creative potential of online alternate history, and how it is slowly but surely becoming recognized by the science-fiction mainstream. He is the first author of Sea Lion Press so honored.
Three cheers for Matthew!
